My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from the Milwaukee Bucks’ 130-110 victory over the 76ers on Monday at Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: It would be criminal to give this award to anyone other than OJ Mayo. The Bucks reserve guard turned this game into his personal three-point shooting exhibition. He made of 7 of 9 shot from beyond the arc to finish with a team-high 25 points. Mayo made his first five three-point attempts.
Worst performance: This has to go to Eric Maynor. The reserve point guard, who was acquired from the Washington Wizards in last week’s three-team trade, struggled a little in his Sixers debut. He missed all five of his field-goal attempts en route to finishing with one point. He also had more turnovers (three) than assists (two) in 15 minutes, 39 seconds of action.
Best performance in a losing effort: Thaddeus Young gets this award after producing game highs of 28 points, seven assists and six steals. The power forward scored 22 of his points after intermission. There was no quit in Young, who played hard throughout what was another embarrassing loss for the Sixers.
