Best and worst awards: Sixers vs. Grizzlies

Here's my look at some of the best and worst performances from the Memphis Grizzlies 104-90 victory over the 76ers Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center:

Best performance:  Marc Gasol wins this award.  The Grizzlies center finished with game highs of 19 points and three steals. He also finished with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and one blocked shot.

Worst performance:  Even though he graded out with plus-11, there's no way that Tony Allen could have avoided receiving this award. The Grizzlies guard missed all five of his shots en route to scoring one point.

Best defensive performance:  This award goes to Matt Barnes. The Grizzlies forward finished with a game-high two blocks to go with two steals. Barnes also finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds – nine defensive.

Best performance by a Sixer: Jahlil Okafor had to get this one. The center finished with 18 points while making 8 of 12 shots. He also finished with five rebounds, two assists and four turnovers.

Worst statistic:  This goes to the Sixers turnovers. They finished the game with 28.  The Grizzlies went on to score 36 points off those miscues.

Best statistic:  This award goes to Sixers rebounding. They outrebounded the Grizzlies, 42-36, with Robert Covington and Nerlens Noel leading the team with 8 apiece.
