Best and worst of Sixers-Pacers: Shake Milton’s rough shooting night, Danny Green’s injury and more from the 118-113 loss
Justin Holiday torched the Sixers with a season-high 27 points on 9-for-11 shooting, including making 6 of 8 three-pointers.
INDIANAPOLIS – Here is my look at some of the best and worst performances from the 76ers’ 118-113 loss to the Indiana Pacers Saturday night at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.
Best performance: Justin Holiday gets this on a night Tobias Harris finished with a season-high 32 points to go with 11 rebounds. The Pacers sixth man and former Sixer finished with a season-high 27 points on 9-for-11 shooting, including making 6 of 8 three-pointers. The swingman came into the game averaging 8.2 points.
Worst performance: Sixers sixth man Shake Milton missed six of his eight field-goal attempts en route to finishing with seven points.
Best defensive performance: Myles Turner matched a season high with six blocks to go with two steals. It marked the Pacers centers fourth game of the season with at least five blocks.
Worst statistic: Indiana missed its share of foul shots. The Pacers made 10 of 15 (66.7%) free throws.
Best statistic: The Pacers scorched the nets in the second quarter. They made 14 of 20 (70%) shots, including 7 of 11 three-pointers.
Worst of the worst: Danny Green left the game in the third quarter after re-injuring his left hamstring. This marked his fourth game back after missing three with the hamstring injury. The 34-year-old wanted to get his rhythm and insisted on playing instead of taking more time to rest his hamstring. Now, he’ll be missing on an already depleted Sixers squad.
