Dallas looks to get out of the mess in the West as they welcome in the 76ers to Dallas on Sunday.
The Mavs sit in 6th place, but stringing together a couple of losses could put them right out of the playoffs.
Phili looks to play the spoiler role here in the 2nd half of the season as they compete with the Lakers for the worst record in the NBA.
The 76ers have shown one thing throughout their tough times over the past few season. This team has the potential to make a solid tam in the future.
They will likely have either the 1st or 2nd pick in next year’s draft, which means they can add another young piece to this core.
The 76ers know they are still a few years away from even considering contention, but they have the pieces built-in to make a push later in the coming seasons.
The 76ers are led by young gun Jahlil Okafor.
Okafor has averaged 17.1 points per game this season to go along with 7.3 rebounds. The rookie had some ups and downs in the first half, but when Nerlens Noel went down, Okafor has stepped up big time both in scoring and on the boards.
PG Ish Smith has brought some solid veteran leadership to the team as he has jumped to the #1 spot on the depth chart and averages nearly 7 assists per game.
The Mavericks have dropped 2 in a row and when you’re sitting in the bottom tier of the Western Conference, that is something you can’t do.
The Mavs are just 1.5 games away from the 9th spot, as they’ll likely be in a battle with 4 or 5 other teams the rest of the way for the bottom 3 spots in the West.
Dallas has their home play in the first half to really thank for them being even in a playoff position right now. They have gone 15-11 inside American Airlines Arena while scoring 102.5 points per game versus the 99.8 points they concede.
The main problem for the Mavs has been the inconsistency of Dirk Nowitzki.
He’s been either extremely hot or extremely cold, there really hasn’t been a middle ground. Dirk has hit the 20 point plateau in just 1 of his last 8 games.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
The Mavs haven’t been as consistent as they should be, but they have been a decent bet this season. Dallas has gone 5 games over the .500 mark in terms of ATS.
With the 76ers really not putting up much of a fight on a consistent basis, look for the Mavericks to really have their way and put an end to their modest 2 game losing streak.
