Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers Pick and Prediction 13/11/14
The Philadelphia 76ers lost their seventh straight game this season as they were blown out by the Toronto Raptors 120-88 on the road. The 76ers are likely guaranteed to finish this season with the worst record in the history of the NBA as they are just too young and lack the talent to compete in the NBA. To be Honest, the Kentucky Wildcats could possible compete with his this team which is composed of rookies and d-league players looking for a shot to impress. The 76ers are joke and are always going to find themselves being double digit dogs every road game. Until Michael-Carter Williams returns from his injury and Nerlens Noel is able to play on a consistent basis , the 76ers are in trouble and are going to be embarrassed by other teams in the league. The only positive from their season so far has been the play of guard Tony Wrotten who is averaging over 20 points per game but, he will not be enough to beat the Dallas Mavericks.
