76ers-Wizards best worst: Wall, Okafor and 15-point first quarter
by Keith Pompey, Posted: November 16, 2016
Here is my look at some of the best and worst performances from the 76ers' 109-102 victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance:John Wallsgets this on another night when his team failed to win. The Wizards point guard finished with a game-high 27 points to go with six assists in just 23 minutes, 56 seconds of action. He made 10 of 12 foul shots. Twenty-three of his points came after intermission.
Worst performance: This goes toTrey Burke. The Wizards reserve point guard missed four of his five shot attempts en route to finishing with two points. He failed to record an assist or rebound in his 5:29 of action.
Best performance by a Sixer: You have to give this toJahlil Okafor. The 6-foot-11 center scored a team-high 19 points while starting in place of the resting Joel Embiid. Okafor made 8 of 11 shots and went 3-for-4 from the foul line. This was a great bounce-back game after scoring four points on 2-for-11 shooting on Monday.
Best defensive performance: With four steals and a block,Otto Porter Jr. is the only logical person to win this award. The Washington small forward also finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds – with 13 coming on the defensive end.
Worst statistic:How can you not give this to theWizards’ foul shooting? They made just 68.2 percent (15 of 22) of their foul shots.
