Injury Report Key to Matchup
If you’re ready to do some online gambling on Wednesday’s Dallas-Philadelphia contest, take a look at any injury updates you can find. The Maverick sand 76ers have been shuffling their stars in and out of lineups for days now as they struggle to get to the finish line.
Regardless of who’s on the court, it should be a great night to make a bet online as both teams are in need of a win and will be going all out. Read on for some more NBA news as it relates to the Mavericks and 76ers before checking out our NBA picks.
Doncic Plays, Dominates at Indiana
Hours after his 16th technical foul was rescinded by the NBA, allowing him to avoid a one-game suspension, Luka Doncic put in a clutch performance Monday night at Indiana. He had 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists in 28 turnover-free minutes as Dallas snapped a four-game slide with a 127-104 win.
“That’s what he does,” coach Jason Kidd said. “He’s one of the best players in the league at finding guys and then he’s able to catch and shoot — not just once but multiple times.”
Included in the performance was one of the more remarkable passes the NBA has seen this season. In typical Doncic fashion, he had a glance and perhaps some words for the Pacers bench. A cocky, clicking-on-all-cylinders Doncic is what Dallas needs if it is going to climb into the playoff mix, as the Mavericks enter Wednesday sitting outside of the play-in pool.
Dallas finishes its five-game road trip with a Miami-Atlanta back-to-back, so picking up a big one in Philadelphia would go a long way. The Maverick end the season with three straight at home.
Sixers Missing Embiid, Harden in Denver
James Harden has missed four straight games with an Achilles injury and he was joined on the sidelines in Denver on Monday by fellow superstar Joel Embiid, robbing fans of an Embiid-Nikoka Jokic matchup. Their teammates put forth a solid effort but couldn’t finish a fourth-quarter rally, falling 116-111.
If there was a silver lining to the day, it’s that Harden was initially on track to play and technically was active for the first time in a week. That suggests he could be back for the Dallas game, but make sure to keep an eye on updates from Sixers camp.
Tyrese Maxey has been doing his part to keep Philadelphia in games during this rough patch. He scored 29 points Monday (23 in the first half) and is averaging 26.8 points over the last six games.
