My look at some of the best and worst performances from the Utah Jazz’s 104-92 victory over the 76ers on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: This has to go to Gordon Hayward on a night when Sixers reserve Tony Wroten scored a career-high 30 points. Hayward gets this because he led the Jazz to victory. The 6-foot-8 shooting guard scored 13 of his team-high 22 points in the fourth quarter. He scored eight on those points on two three-point plays and a dunk in the final 57.8 seconds.
Worst performance: Arnett Moultrie gets this award. The Sixers reserve center/power forward played with a little bit more emotion than in games past. However, he was far from a factor in his 7 minutes, 19 seconds of action. Moultrie did make his lone shot attempt to score two points. But he also had two turnovers, two fouls and just one rebound.
Best defensive performance: Even though Utah center Derrick Favors had a game-high three blocked shots, this award goes to Michael Carter-Williams. The Sixers rookie point guard lived in Utah’s passing lanes, swiping a game-high five turnovers. He also blocked one shot and four points (a season-low on 2-for-13 shooting), nine assists and seven rebounds.
