Sixers @ Mavericks
Mavericks - Dallas is coming off of a big 108-100 win over the Orlando Magic on Saturday in which center Dajuan Blair had a big game off the bench with 18 points and five rebounds. Dirk Nowitzki is still the man to stop for the Mavericks as he averages 19.2 points per game and 5.5 rebounds. The seven-footer can easily stretch the floor which his range and, at 35, does not appear to be losing any steam. The Mavericks are fourth in the NBA in points per game at 106.6 and must be salivating at the 76ers as they allowed 135 their last time out.
9.5 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 2.1 APG
Anderson, 24, has been hit or miss at the offensive end of the floor for the 76ers this season. After his career-high 36 point effort in last Wednesday's win over the Rockets, Anderson followed it up with a two point effort in 39 minutes on Friday against the Hawks and 11 points against the Pelicans. He earns his money at the defensive end and will have his hands full tonight with Monta Ellis.
21.9 PPG, 5.0 APG, 3.3 RPG
Ellis, 28, is finding success in his first season with the Mavericks leading the team in points per game and looks to have returned to the scorer we were used to seeing in Golden State. He put up 19 points and eight assists in Saturday's win. In 14 career games against the Sixers, Ellis is averaging 20.4 points, 5.4 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game.
