76ers' bench could come in handy versus Cavaliers

The Philadelphia 76ers will be searching for their 15th win in 17 games at home when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.

The Sixers improved to 14-2 on their home court when they dispatched the Dallas Mavericks 111-97 on Thursday. The home mark is the second best in the league, entering Friday's games, behind the Utah Jazz (15-2).

The maligned bench came through with 46 points to help propel the Sixers. Dwight Howard scored 14 of the bench points and gave All Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons some much-needed rest.
