My look at some of the best and worst performances from the Chicago Bulls' 115-96 victory over the 76ers Monday night at the United Center:
Best performance: How can you not give this award to Tony Snell? Anyone who witnessed this game realizes that the Bulls small forward was the man in the decisive second half. Snell scored 15 of his 16 points after intermission. Thirteen came in the third quarter.
Worst performance: I had to give this award to Nik Stauskas. The Sixers reserve shooting guard had five points on 2-for-5 shooting, which was very streaky. He made his first two shots before missing his final three. Stauskas also finished with two turnovers, one rebound and four fouls. He was a minus-31 in 20 minutes, 10 seconds of action.
Best defensive performance: Jerami Grant get this due to having a huge defensive presence all night. The 6-foot-8, power forward had a season-high five blocks to go with a steal. He also finished with six points and six rebounds – four defensive.
Best performance by a Sixer: Someone can argue against Jahlil Okafor deserving this award. The rookie center, who was playing in his home town, finished with team highs 22 points and eight rebounds to go with a block and a steal.
Worst statistic: The Sixers shot 1-for-7 in the paint for two points in the third quarter.
Best statistic: This award goes to the Sixers second-quarter shooting. They made 16 of 25 shots for 64 percent.
Worst of the Worst: They Sixers being outscored 26-1 in the decisive run over the third and fourth quarters.
