The motivation should be HIGH for Joel to have a monster night after he got blasted for not playing last game vs Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets.
Now he is on an extended rest and has covered the last 3 straight when resting 2 or more days. He also covered vs them last game. This game should be competitive as Dallas really needs a win to get into at least the play-in round seeding (currently 11th in the west) and Philly is trying to both fend off the Cavaliers and maybe make a push to catch the Celtics.
Joel should get a nice uptick at home where he scores more points and I'm expecting him to eat up Dwight Powell for dinner, yum!
