Maxey Scores 28 Points vs. Washington
Tyrese Maxey shot 11-of-25 from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line in Saturday’s 119-113 win over Washington, tallying 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes. Maxey was back in the lineup after sitting out Friday’s loss to the Hawks, doing what he’s done on most nights this season.
The 28 points were one more than his tally in losses to the Mavericks and Warriors to begin Week 16, and he entered Saturday in a three-game shooting slump. With Joel Embiid (knee) out indefinitely, Maxey will have even more on his plate as the 76ers look to remain among the East’s elite. His return bumped Cameron Payne to the bench on Saturday, and he finished with six points, one rebound, and six assists in 21 minutes off the bench.
Mitchell Lights Up Nets
Donovan Mitchell lit up Brooklyn for 27 points (10-of-18 FGs), five rebounds, four assists, three steals, three blocks and four 3-pointers in a 118-95 win on Thursday. Mitchell got off to an incredibly hot start in this game and had 10 points less than four minutes into the first quarter. He didn’t stay quite that hot with his scoring, but he was able to make a huge impact in other categories.
Mitchell ended up setting a new career-high for blocks in this game, which ended up making it the first game that he had at least three steals and three blocks as well. Mitchell continues to impress every night, and they have now won 16 of their last 17 games. Their next game is in Toronto on Saturday.
