Featured Game | Philadelphia 76ers vs. Dallas Mavericks
What you need to know about the 76ers
Philadelphia has won its last two road games, but it has come up short in its last two home games. The 76ers have been inconsistent of late, alternating between wins and losses in their last seven contests. They will be hoping to snap that trend on Friday, as their most recent outing resulted in a 118-114 win at Cleveland on Wednesday.
The 76ers are opening a three-game homestand that concludes with games against Toronto and Miami. If MVP frontrunner Embiid is unable to play, that would leave newly acquired James Harden (22.3 points per game) as the top scoring option. The Sixers are 4-4-1 against the spread in Harden’s nine game with the team.
What you need to know about the Mavericks
Dallas has been one of the hottest teams in the NBA of late, winning eight of its last nine games. The Mavericks are currently riding a three-game winning streak, beating Houston, Boston and Brooklyn on the road. Spencer Dinwiddie drilled a 3-pointer at the buzzer on Wednesday to give Dallas a 113-111 win over Brooklyn, which is Dinwiddie’s former team.
This will be the fourth game of a five-game road trip that concludes at Charlotte on Saturday night. Star point guard Luka Doncic leads Dallas with 28.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game. The Mavericks have covered the spread in 13 of their last 17 games.
