WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers

WHAT: A match up against one of the league’s premiere teams

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas Texas

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. CST

HOW: ESPN or Bally Sports

THE STORY: When these two teams met earlier in the year, Dallas was without... a great number of rotation players. The Sixers were well on their way to establishing themselves as one of the best teams in the garbage conference that is the East. The Sixer handed Dallas a 14 point loss that felt and often was, much worse than that.

As of this writing, both Kristaps Porzingis and Maxi Kleber are questionable, though I expect both to play (seems KP is out with some such nonsense). Dallas will need every large human against MVP candidate Joel Embiid. Ben Simmons gave Luka Doncic fits the last time the two played, so it’s reasonable to expect a national tv level performance from Wonder Boy. Lucky for this game is on national tv.

Everyone have fun and go Mavs.
