DALLAS—The Dallas Mavericks recorded their biggest-ever win by routing the winless Philadelphia 76ers 123-70 on Thursday, though the Sixers avoided their heaviest-ever defeat by scoring the last five points of the game.

In the day’s other games, Pau Gasol led Chicago to a win at Toronto, Memphis, came from 26 points down to beat Sacramento with a buzzer-beater, and Golden State had a home win over Brooklyn.

Dallas’ 53-point victory margin surpassed its 50-point win over the New York Knicks in January 2010 as the team’s biggest.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 points while playing only 20 minutes.


At 0-8, Philadelphia is the only NBA team without a victory this season. The only time the 76ers have gone deeper into a season before winning a game was 1972-73, when they lost their first 15 games, according to STATS.

The last NBA team with a longer losing streak to begin a season was the New Jersey Nets during their record 0-18 start in 2009-10.

Chicago’s Pau Gasol had a season-high 27 points and 11 rebounds and Derrick Rose scored 20 points before leaving with hamstring soreness, leading the Bulls to a 100-93 win at Toronto.

The Bulls won for the sixth time in seven games and snapped Toronto’s five-game winning streak in the matchup of teams with the best records in the Eastern Conference. Both teams are 7-2.


Memphis’ Courtney Lee scored on a lob pass as time expired to give the Grizzlies a 111-110 win over Sacramento.

Golden State’s Klay Thompson scored 25 points as the Warriors defeated Brooklyn, 107-99.   AP
