The Philadelphia 76ers have been on a good run lately after the blockbuster trade that took place last month brought James Harden to the roster. The team has improved tremendously and is struggling to be at the top of the Eastern Conference. After an unfortunate loss, the Sixers caught up with the Cleveland Cavaliers to win 118-114. That puts them three games behind the top spot with a record of 42 wins and 26 losses.
During the fourth quarter of the game with 10 seconds remaining on the shot clock, the Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey hit the dagger to take the lead to four points, which would eventually give them the win. Maxey was great for the Sixers roster and provided them with extra offensive power. He is considered one of the most improved players in the league, averaging 17.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists, shooting 48.3% from the field. Way better than 8 points, 1.7 rebounds and 2 assists, right?
James Harden is heated after Tyrese Maxey passes a wide-open three-pointer
James Harden has done offensive wonders for the Sixers and fits perfectly alongside Joel Embiid in pick ‘n’ roll. The Bart is one of the smartest players in the league and never misses an opportunity when it presents itself. Before Maxey hit the dagger with 10 seconds on the shot clock, he passed an open shot and proceeded to a layup who eventually passed it to Embiid. Although the shot went on the second try, Harden was still upset that Tyrese was able to hit on the first available try.
Harden recorded a double-double with 21 points, 11 assists and 2 rebounds by shooting 5 of 12 attempts from the field. Alongside him, Joel Embiid put in another MVP-level performance, finishing with 35 points, 17 rebounds and 5 assists, one of which happened to come from Maxey’s triple. Tyrese had 25 points with 2 assists and 2 rebounds in the game. The Sixers had the upper hand on offense last night, shooting 51.9% from the field.
