Here are my main takeaways and best and worst awards from the 76ers’ 103-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Best performance: Simmons gets this for setting the tempo and having a solid all-round game. He scored nine of the Sixers’ first 15 points. He went on to finish with 19 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, two steals, and three turnovers.
Worst performance: I have to give this to Shelvin Mack. The former Sixer had four assists in 20:44, but he scored two points and made just 1 of 5 shots. The reserve guard graded out at a game-worst minus-13.
Best defensive performance: JaMychal Green, Grizzlies reserve power forward, posted a season-high four steals.
Worst statistic: Embiid and JJ Redick combined to shoot 0-for-7 in the first quarter. Redick missed all five of his first-quarter attempts.
