76ers Vs. Mavericks: Sixers Fall to Mavs, 82-75



The Philadelphia 76ers dropped their third home game in a row on Friday night as they lost to the Dallas Mavericks by a score of 82-75 in Wells Fargo Center. This is the Sixers' second loss in a row, giving them a 20-11 record which puts them in third place in the Eastern Conference and keeps them in first place in the Atlantic Division. The Mavericks now also have a 20-11 record, which is good for fourth place in the Western Conference and second place in the Southwest division.

Only one 76ers starter was able to read double digit points on Friday night and that was Andre Iguodala, who barely got there with 10 points. The team's leading scorers all came off the bench as Nikola Vucevic led the team with 16 points, Thaddeus Young added 14 and Lou Williams scored 12. The Mavericks were led by Dirk Nowitzki. The Sixers held him to only four points in the first half but allowed him to explode in the second half. He scored a total of 28 points. Vince Carter added 10 and Dominique Jones came off the bench to score 12.

The 76ers will look to bounce back on the road on Sunday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7 p.m. (ET) while the Mavericks will look to win their seventh game in a row in New York against the Knicks on Sunday afternoon.
