We learned nothing.
The biggest takeaway from the 76ers’ 121-90 victory was that some of the Oklahoma City Thunder players’ names are hard to pronounce. The Sixers did everything they were expected to do to the tanking Thunder on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Here’s a look at the best and worst awards from the contest:
Ben Simmons gets this. In his first game back, the Sixers All-Star scored 12 points on 6-for-8 shooting and added three rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks, and two turnovers in 22 minutes, 37 seconds.
Svi Mykhailiuk gets this. The Thunder reserve had two points, missing four of his five shots. He also had more turnovers (five) than assists (0) and rebounds (2) combined.
Best defensive performance
Tobias Harris gets this. The Sixers power forward had a game-high four steals while playing just 25:26.
This goes to the Sixers steals. Their 22 steals are the most by an NBA team this season. The previous high was 18 by the Indiana Pacers against the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 3.
This goes to OKC’s turnovers. The Thunder turned the ball over 30 times.
