SIXERS DON’T WIN WITHOUT MAXEY’S 33 AND 5 TRIPLES!

By Jerry Wein

Tyrese Maxey exploded for 33 points (10-of-15 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs), five assists, four rebounds, two steals, one block and five triples in the Sixers comeback win over Cleveland.

James Harden’s arrival has pushed Maxey off the ball more, and that’s a role he’s clearly thriving in.

“He’s back home, when you think about it,” coach Doc Rivers said after Sunday’s win over the Knicks.

“He’s actually playing the position now that he’s played his whole life. So in some ways, he’s very comfortable playing the way he’s playing.”

Maxey averaged 24.7 points on 64.3 percent shooting with 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 dimes, 3.0 triples and 2.0 steals in his previous three games with Harden.
