The Sixers are shooting 4-for-18 in the second quarter. That's 22 percent and the Mavericks are having a little something to do with that.
Their defense is playing better than it did Saturday in Cleveland, although that's not saying much.
Sparks have come from J.J. barea, Jason Kidd and Drew Gooden.
Kidd already has 13 points and the Mavericks are up 48=36.
