The Sixers fell Tuesday night to the Dallas Mavericks, 107-100, from an onslaught of scoring from a combination of OJ Mayo, Shawn Marion and Chris Kaman. Kaman, Marion, and Mayo combined for 60 points while running away with a win at home at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas. Mayo poured in 26 points and 8 assists in the winning effort and helped the Mavericks shoot 54.2 percent from the floor as compared to the Sixers 43 percent. Dorell Wright was one of the top performes for the Sixers, finishing with a season-high 25 points on 7-for-13 from behind the arc coupled with 5 rebounds and a pair of assists. Evan Turner has begun to fill in the role left by an injured Jrue Holiday. Turner finished the game with 17 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds while becoming the primary ball handeler for the club due to the slew of injuries. Spencer Hawes also added a convincing 18 points and 7 rebound effort to help carry the team. The main issue the Sixers will begin to face as they have entered a 10-game road trip, is the absence of their point-man Jrue Holiday. Without Holiday (averages 18.4 ppg, 8.9 apg, 1.5 spg) the Sixers lose a key component and the central cog of their offense, something that won't win them many games. As this road trip contines someone has to step up for the sake of the 76ers. It surely won't be Andrew Bynum.   Follow Tyler R. Tynes on Twitter @RealTylerTynes
