PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Shawn Marion had 22, and the Dallas Mavericks beat undermanned Philadelphia 124-112 Friday night, handing the 76ers their 10th straight loss.

A day after dismantling the roster and trading away Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen, the Sixers had just eight players in uniform.

Thaddeus Young scored 30, and Michael Carter-Williams had 25 for Philadelphia, which has looked toward next season.

While the Sixers eye the future, the Mavericks are making a playoff push. They're in a tight battle with four teams for the final three playoff spots in the West.

Nowitzki hit consecutive 3s in the opening minutes, and the Mavericks led from the start.
