My look at some of the best and worst performances from the 76ers' 97-81 victory over the New York Knicks at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday:
Best performance: It was a no-brainer to give this award to Nerlens Noel. The Sixers center had a career-high 23 points to go with 14 rebounds, five steals and three blocked shots. Twelve of his points came in the first quarter on 5-for-6 shooting.
Worst performance: There's no way that Langton Galloway could have avoided receiving this award. The Knicks guard had a game he would love to forget. Galloway scored two points, on 1 of 8 shooting. He also finished with a game-high four turnovers.
Best defensive performance: This also has to go to Noel. His steals (five) and blocked shots (three) were game highs.
Best performance by a Knick: Alexey Shved had to get this one. The point guard scored 25 points while making 7 of 8 three-pointers. He also had six rebounds and three assists against the team that traded him in December.
Worst statistic: This goes to the Knicks 20 turnovers. The Sixers converted them into 29 points.
Best statistic: This award goes to Knicks making 23 of 26 foul shots (88.5 percent).
Worst of the Worst: The goes to the Knicks. They were a bunch of players going through the motions. The Sixers basically dominated all phases of the game, and the Knicks didn't really care.
