Tyrese Maxey shot 11-of-25 from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line in the Sixers 119-113 win over Washington, draining 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
Maxey was back in the lineup after sitting out Friday’s loss to the Hawks, doing what he’s done on most nights this season.
The 28 points were one more than his tally in losses to the Mavericks and Warriors to begin Week 16, and he entered Saturday in a three-game shooting slump.
With Joel Embiid (knee) out indefinitely, Maxey will have even more on his plate as the 76ers look to remain among the East’s elite. His return bumped Cameron Payne to the bench on Saturday, and he finished with six points, one rebound, and six assists in 21 minutes off the bench.
