Maxey Scored NBA season-high 31 points
During Monday’s win over the Pacers, Maxey came off an eight-point performance (3-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt). He bounced back impressively.
Tyrese delivered his best scoring output of the campaign while leading the Sixers in scoring in this loss. The Sixers have not had an excellent start to the season. But there was the man Tyrese Maxey. He has looked quite good as Philadelphia’s third-best scoring option behind Joel Embiid and James Harden, as he has scored at least 20 points in three of his five appearances so far.
Maxey believes his team needs to improve communication, especially on the defensive end.
When Maxey was asked what the Sixers need to improve, he replied,” Communication. Sometimes it’s extremely hard to get on the same page, you gotta step in the same direction. Talk to each other, know what we’re doing, know when we’re switching, when we are not switching.”
His fans are overwhelmed by his achievement. People are praising Maxey on social media.
