My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from the Orlando Magic's 105-88 victory over the 76ers on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: This award goes to Aaron Gordon on a night when Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor and Nik Vucevic all had double-doubles. But Gordon finished with 20 points despite sitting out the fourth quarter. The Magic small forward made 9 of 14 shots - including going 2-for-4 on three-pointers in 25 minutes, 14 seconds of action..
Worst performance: There's no way that Nik Stauskas could have avoided receiving this award. The Sixers reserve shooting guard had a hard time shooting and holding on to the ball. He was held scoreless after missing all six of his shots – including going 0-3 on three-pointers. He also finished with three turnovers.
Best defensive performance: Jodie Meeks, the Magic reserve guard, finished with a game-high three steals in just 16 minutes, 52 minutes of action. The former Sixer also finished with 10 points.
Best performance by a Sixer: Joel Embiid easily gets this one. The Sixers center totaled a game-high 25 points, 10 rebounds and four shots. He made 3 of 5 three-point attempts.
Worst statistic: This goes to Sixers' shooting. They made 36 of 95 shots for 37.9 percent.
Best statistic: The Magic's three-point shooting. Orlando made a season-high 13 three-pointers.
Worst of the worst: This goes to Sixers' dismal effort. The home team was off since Monday, while the Magic were playing the second game of a back-to-back situation. To make matter worse, Orlando didn't arrive to Philadelphia until around 3:30 a.m. But you would have never known it by the way they dominated the Sixers, who kept missing shot after shot.
