On Monday, April 12th, the Philadelphia 76ers meet the Dallas Mavericks for the second and final time this season. Philadelphia won the first meeting on February 25th (111-97).
The Spurs last played on Friday in a spirited match versus the Nuggets that came down to the final shot with Denver winning 121-119. The Mavericks last played on Thursday, defeating the Bucks in a 116-101 rout.
Last season, the squads played twice with the Mavericks winning both contests. The Mavericks hold the all-time record having won 40 matches of the 78 played.
.The 76ers have their big man back in time for the stretch run. In the last eight games, they’ve managed to produce a .500 record with four wins and four losses.
Aside from the win versus the Celtics the other victories were against lottery clubs while the three of the four losses were against seeded teams (Clippers, Nuggets, Grizzlies).
.With the Nets losing to the Lakers this weekend, the 76ers were able to pull back in front by virtue of beating the Thunder youngsters.
While Oklahoma City is trotting out more of a glorified G-League team the win was important as it offered the 76ers a chance to get rolling on both sides of the court for an easy 117-93 victory.
Joel Embiid led the way with 27 points, nine rebounds, four assists, and four blocks. Furkan Korkmaz scored 20 points while Ben Simmons (13), Mike Scott (13), and Shake Milton (12) were the other double-figure contributors.
Danny Green (hip) and Tobias Harris (knee) missed Saturday’s match but only George Hill (thumb) remains on the 76ers injury report.
Residing in the seventh seed currently, the Mavericks are trying to climb up the ladder and avoid the play-in tournament. They let a great opportunity slip through their fingers on Sunday with a clutch time two-points loss to the Spurs.
Through the last 12 games, they are 8-4 but the losses signify a lack of focus given all four occurred against sub .500 clubs (Pacers, Pelicans, Rockets, Spurs). In contrast, their last 10 wins feature elite opponents like the Nuggets, Clippers, Blazers, Celtics, and Bucks.
Dallas is 4-6 in second games of back-to-back sets, however, the last two featured wins.
In the loss to the Spurs, Kristaps Porzingis led the way with a double-double of 31 points and 15 rebounds while Luka Doncic added 29 points. Porzingis wasn’t on the floor for the final shot however as he fouled out.
Josh Richardson (16) and Jalen Brunson (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
One player who may help the cause is J.J. Redick who is expected to make his Mavericks debut. He’ll join Willie Cauley-Stein who returned versus the Spurs after missing 12 games.
Tyrell Terry (personal) isn’t expected in the lineup Monday.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The teams are 5-5 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- The Mavericks are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 5-5 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Philly has the rest advantage but the first time the teams played Porzingis wasn’t in the lineup. If the teams play to trend the Mavericks will bounce back. Doncic called the match ‘very disappointing’ was visibly annoyed and frustrated so expect him to be dialed in on Monday.
