Player grades: Undermanned Sixers battle, but fall to Mavericks at home

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia 76ers played host to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday looking to find some momentum. The Sixers entered the contest losers of five of their past six games and struggling to find success without the injured Joel Embiid.

The Mavericks used a steady diet of Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic in the second half and were able to rally for a 118-102 win. Irving and Doncic combined for 42 points and the Mavericks also received 20 points out of Josh Green. The Sixers are now 4-11 without Embiid.
