Sixers-Mavericks game Monday flexed onto ESPN, replacing Lakers-Knicks
The 76ers will be back in the national spotlight sooner than expected. Earlier today, ESPN announced a change in their broadcasts for next week’s NBA games and flexed the 76ers-Mavericks game on Monday, replacing the Lakers-Knicks game previously scheduled.
Monday’s game will be the 76ers seventh game on ESPN this season, the last being March 17th against the Milwaukee Bucks. Following the Mavericks, the Sixers will play three straight games on ESPN against the Nets, Clippers, and Golden State Warriors.
When playing on ESPN, the 76ers are 5-1, and their only loss was without Embiid in overtime against the Bucks. Hopefully, this winning stretch will continue through the most challenging part of the Sixers schedule going forward. Philly is expected to tip off at 7:30 in Dallas.
