This edition of “Fo’ with the Foes” — Philadunkia’s advanced scouting series which with the help of an accomplished journalist from around the NBA beat or blog world, previews upcoming 76ers opponents — features tonight’s opponent, the deep and star studded Dallas Mavericks who are the foes for game two of this four game road trip.
This is going to be a nearly impossible game for the Sixers to win. The 76ers are short-handed with only 10 players available, they played and lost in San Antonio last night and the Iverson drama is in full effect which has to be a distraction. On top of all of that, tonight’s opponent, the Dallas Mavericks are a very good squad and at 12-5, are one of the best teams in the deep Western Conference.
For a little more insight into the Mavs team the Sixers face tonight, we turn to our man Rob Mahoney from thetwomangame.com to answer two questions on the Mavs from us here at Philadunkia as well as provide us with two points of analysis on this Dallas squad from an insider’s perspective.
