About the 76ers: The Sixers started the season fast, but now look more like a rebuilding team. Philly has lost five of its past six. ... Second-year guard Tony Wroten made history during Wednesday’s 123-117 overtime victory against Houston when he became the first NBA player to have a triple-double in his first career start.

About the Mavericks: This is the opener of a three-game homestand for the Mavs, who are coming off a split of their two-game road trip to Florida. ... Monta Ellis averages a team-high 21.9 points per game. .... At some point on this homestand, Dirk Nowitzki should pass Reggie Miller and become the NBA’s 15th all-time leading scorer.

— Dwain Price
