My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from the 76ers’ 115-107 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: As much as I wanted to give this award to Spencer Hawes, I had to give it to Evan Turner. While Hawes’ three-pointer with 1.7 seconds remaining forced overtime, his teammate won the game. Turner scored the first six points of the overtime and eight of Sixers’ 13 points in the extra session. The 6-foot-7 swingman finished with a team-high 27 points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal. Turner’s overtime heroics more than made up for his five turnovers.
Worst performance: It seems strange to give this to someone, who finished with eight assists. But I had to give it to O.J. Mayo. The Bucks shooting guard struggled through 3-for-12 shooting (0-for-6 on three-pointers) to finish with nine points. He also failed to grab a single rebound in 36 minutes of action. That’s bad.
Best performance in a losing effort: This was an easy one, because Caron Butler was dominating at times. The Bucks guard made 4 of 8 three-pointers to finish with a game-high 38 points. He becomes the first Milwaukee player to score more than 28 points in a game this season. At one point, Butler seemed destined to will Milwaukee to a road win.
