Turnover problems send Mavericks to blowout loss to open road trip

The Mavericks hit the road Thursday night for the first time in 22 days.

Their ballhandling skills apparently did not make the trip with them.

A season-worst night of turnovers doomed the Mavericks as they opened a three-game trip with a major thud, dropping a 111-97 decision to the Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center.

The Mavericks had played eight successive games at home and won six of them. They opened this three-game trip against the top team (by record) in the Eastern Conference. And things did not go well.

The All-Star duo of Joel Embiid (23 points, nine rebounds) and Ben Simmons (15 points, seven assists) got plenty of help from former Mavericks guard Seth Curry (15 points).
