Dario Saric had 21 points and 12 rebounds — his best game as a member of the Sixers, who acquired him after Orlando selected him 12th in the 2014 draft. He played the last two seasons overseas.
“He was a man down there tonight,” coach Brett Brown said. “You’d walk away and say that’s a hell of a player for playing 20 games in the NBA.”
Saric provided the highlight of the night when he sent Boston’s Jonas Jerebko tumbling to the floor with a behind-the-back dribble before pulling up and draining an 18-footer.
