The Dallas Mavericks travel to the Wells Fargo Center to battle the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night. Here’s a Mavs vs 76ers Prediction.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been in a real slump as they've lost six of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting routed by the Bucks in a 129-117 loss on Saturday. Luka Doncic led the team with 40 points, nine rebounds and 11 assists, Maxi Kleber added 21 points on eight of 11 shooting while Josh Green chipped in with 20 points, nine rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Mavericks shot 49 percent from the field and 16 of 39 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 44 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early 25-point lead, only to get run down with time to spare as they had no answer for the Bucks' duo of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard who combined for 78 points.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have really been doing it tough lately as they've lost five of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting thrashed by the Nets in a 136-121 loss on Saturday. Tyrese Maxey led the team with 23 points and five assists, Terquavion Smith added 17 points off the bench while Kelly Oubre Jr chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the 76ers shot just 45 percent from the field and 12 of 29 from the 3-point line, but they were always fighting an uphill battle in this one after allowing 38 points in the first quarter to trail by as many as 30 points before they scored a late flurry of points to keep the final scores somewhat respectable. The 76ers will play against the Warriors and Hawks after this one.

Philadelphia 76ers Player Facts

  • Tyrese Maxey ranks 7th amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (4.2) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for steals per game this season (8.9).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.0).
  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (3.9).
  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for three-point field goals made per game this season (15.0).

Mavs vs 76ers Prediction

The Mavericks are could be shorthanded here with Luka Doncic and Maxi Kleber both listed as questionable, but they should have Kyrie Irving back in the lineup, while the 76ers are still missing Joel Embiid, Nicolas Batum and De'Anthony Melton. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff, and this game will largely come down to the matchup of Kyrie Irving against Tyrese Maxey, but I'm slightly more comfortable going with the Mavericks who are slowly getting healthier.
