This Saturday night matchup features the 76ers and their “process” taking on the rebuilding Mavs.
Last season, the teams split the season series with Philly ending the Mavs 8 game winning streak in head to head matchups.
The 76ers have only picked up one win this season. But the potential is there for them to contend for a playoff spot. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are potential franchise changing players and make this team exciting to watch every night.
Simmons has been a double-double machine, averaging 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists per game in the early portion of the season. He was not viewed as having a reliable jump shot at LSU, and has struggled shooting the ball. I expect Simmons to put up solid numbers and get double digit rebounds for the 5th time in 6 games.
Joel Embiid has the skillset to be one of the best centers in the NBA, and is a big man who can become a stretch 5, able to shoot the ball deep and attack players of the dribble. He is still being limited to not playing the second game in back to backs, but his season numbers so far show how impactful he can be.
He put up 21 points and 6 rebounds in the last game against the Rockets, and is averaging 20 points and 10 boards on the season.
Look for him to get huge numbers against a weak Mavs front line.
With Dirk Nowitzki possibly retiring at the end of this season, Harrison Barnes and Dennis Smith Jr. are the future of the franchise. Barnes is in his second season in Dallas, after winning a championship with the Warriors.
This season he is putting up solid numbers, averaging 17 points and 6 rebounds per game. Barnes will be tested by Simmons most of the night, but he should be able to match his season averages.
Dennis Smith Jr. is an exciting rookie, and is second on the team in scoring and leads in assists with over 6 per game. His ability to attack the rim will be tested with the length of the 76ers, but he should have a nice game.
The Mavs are the worst shooting team in the NBA, and if they have poor shot selection that could lead to transition baskets for the Sixers.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs.Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
This should be a back and forth contest, but I expect the veterans on the Mavs roster to beat out the talent of the young Sixers roster.
Look for the Sixers to get out to an early lead but the Mavs will pull away in the 4th.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks + 1.0
Barnes should finish with at least 15 points and do enough to seal the victory.
