The Dallas Mavericks make the trip out to Philadelphia to take on a winless 76ers team, and they do it coming off one of their best efforts of the season – doing so without the services of star forward Dirk Nowitzki and two other starters.
For the Mavericks, the win was their third in row as they continue their current road trip Monday. Nowitzki took a seat to rest, as did Wesley Matthews and Chandler Parson on the second night of a back-to-back on Saturday, but the team still found itself victorious with a 110-98 win over the Houston Rockets.
The Mavericks never trailed that one and built a margin of as many as 26 points in that one. Raymond Felton started in place of Matthews and scored 23 points. Charlie Villanueva started in place of Nowitzki and scored 19 after Nowitzki was limited to nine on Friday night.
The Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, completing their sweep of Los Angeles. The Mavericks beat the Clippers on Wednesday by a score of 118-108, with Nowitzki scoring a season-high 31 points on 11-of-14 shooting.
The 76ers haven’t won a basketball game in eight months, losing 20 consecutive games. The team ranks near the bottom of the NBA in both scoring and field-goal percentage. A year ago, the team got off to a franchise-worst 0-17 start to begin the 2014-15 season.
Jahlil Okafor has been a rare bright spot for the 76ers in another forgettable campaign for the team. The rookie is averaging 19.2 points on the season, and put up 21 points and 12 rebounds in a 92-83 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. The Sixers could get some help in this one with the anticipated return of guard Robert Covington from a sprained knee.
NBA Betting Trends:
The over is 4-0 in the 76ers’ last four home games.
The over is 7-0 in the 76ers’ last seven games played on a Monday.
The over is 9-4 in the Mavericks’ last 13 road games.
The over is 4-1 in the Mavericks’ last five games against Eastern Conference opponents.
Free NBA Prediction:
The 76ers have been abysmal this season, but they do have an elite scoring option in Okafor, and the return of Covington would only help in that department. On the other side of the court, the Mavericks are happy to play at a fast pace, and with many of their players rested, there will be no letting up on this night.

This should be a fun game to watch, with both teams pushing the pace and keeping the scoreboard operators busy in what figures to be a high-scoring contest.
