The last scrimmage of the NBA restart will feature the Mavericks and the Sixers. Here is the game’s preview and where you watch all the action.
Although the Mavericks have big names like Doncic and Porzingis, they are still fighting for a position in the playoffs in the Western Conference. They are currently seeded 7th. They beat the Lakers in their first game before falling to the Indiana Pacers in their second match-up.
The Sixers won their previous matchup against Thunder. They even won their first game against the Grizzlies. Fans will definitely be expecting a 3-for-3 from their players today. Their seeding games start on August 1st against the Pacers.
Both the Mavericks and Sixers have a lot of teams chasing them and thus will need to bring their A-game to the table right from the NBA seeding games.
However, with just a couple of days left for the restart, expect both the Mavs and the 76ers to rest a few players tonight, so as to keep them healthy for the restart.

For the Mavs, Porzingis will be back in action after missing out on the previous game. He had to sit out of the previous game after having forgotten to take his Covid-19 test the previous day.
However, Carlisle confirmed that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not be starting as he is still physically not up to the mark. Trey Burke, however, is expected to return to the squad tonight and take the centre-court.
Carlisle expects Burke to play tomorrow. MKG still a ways off physically, Carlisle says. https://t.co/vcQWWcUnKi

Meanwhile, Ben Simmons has been on top of the game with the move to the power forward position. He has been unstoppable in the last two scrimmages and his shooting will only improve with daily practice.
Harford, who stepped in for Embiid excelled in the previous game. Since he was seen practising yesterday, fans would definitely expect that he will take the court on Tuesday in the 76ers last scrimmage game.
Joel Embiid did not play to his full extent in the previous game, but should be drafted in tonight to help him get into the groove for the restart.
