Shake Milton replaced Tyrese Maxey in the starting lineup for last night’s Sixers-Raps exhibition, but he finished with just five points, two boards, four dimes, one triple, one steal and two turnovers across 25 minutes.
Milton was scoreless through the first quarter with just one shot, and he finished a mere 2-of-5 from the floor.
He was also seriously outplayed by Maxey, who came off the bench and put in a quick 10 points in his first 10 minutes of play, ending his evening with 14 points (6-of-9 FG, 1-of-1 FT), five assists and one 3-pointer over 21 minutes.
When Ben Simmons is dealt and Maxey stays, then he’d be the favorite to start.
