Road Woes Continue for Sixers, 109-91

The Philadelphia 76ers (25-15) went on the road to face the Dallas Mavericks (24-15).

A tale of two games or halves haunted Philadelphia who drops to a dismal, 7-13 on the road.

Things started well for the Philly boys who claimed a 50-41 lead at the half with Ben Simmons dropping 11 points.

Ir then became nite-nite time for Simmons and crew as Dallas posted a 32 point third and closed with a 34 point final quarter to claim victory.

Simmons finished with the same 11 points he picked up in the first half and added 11 assists.

Josh Richardson and Al Horford each drained 16 points but Tobias Harris added a double-double with a game-high 30 points and 10 boards.

Luka Doncic and Dwight Powell both had 19 points, 12 rebound games for the Mavs. Dorian Finley-Smith added 16 points.

Philadelphia was dismal on three-pointers, hitting only 9 of 37.
