DAL vs LAL Dream11: Dallas Mavericks play the back-to-back game against yet another high-profile team as Luka Doncic and co play a regular-season matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers at American Airlines Center, on Sunday morning.
Dallas, who started the season in red-hot form, has gone off the boil in recent weeks, as they come into this game with two straight defeats, and five in the last seven games. As a result, the Mavericks have slipped down the table to 6th with a 23-15 record in the season. Kristaps Porzingis' absence has taken the toll on the team's defence as the opponents are scoring more points in the paint against Dallas than prior to Porzingis' injury.
Philadelphia 76ers are also shorthanded as Joel Embiid remains out, but they won back-to-back games against two high-profile teams. First, they defeated Oklahoma City Thunder 120-113 and then made the easy work of Boston Celtics with a 109-89 win at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia. With those two wins, the Sixers improved to 25-14 this season.
