KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Here is my look at some of the best and worst performances from the 76ers’ 110-106 Game 4 loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday at The Field House inside ESPN’s Wide World of Sports.
Best performance: This goes to Kemba Walker. The Celtics point guard torched the Sixers for the third game in a row. The All-Star finished with a game-high 32 points and made 12 of 13 foul shots. Twenty of his points came in the first half while getting anywhere on the floor he wanted.
Worst performance: This was a tough one, but I had to give this to Furkan Korkmaz for not making any contribution. The reserve guard was re-signed last summer to provide shooting. He didn’t attempt a single shot. Nor did he make any other statistical contribution during his 4 minutes, 22 seconds of action. It’s hard to get more playing time when you’re not contributing in any way.
Best defensive performance: This is a tough one, just because Jayson Tatum did a solid job on Josh Richardson. But it’s hard to pass up on Joel Embiid on a night he finishes with a game-high three steals to go with two blocks.
Worst statistic: I had to give this to the Sixers’ shooting 9-for-34 (26.5%) from three-point land. They were 1-for-10 in the third quarter.
Best statistic: This goes to Walker making 12 of 13 foul shots.
