My look at some of the best and worst performances from the Portland Trail Blazers’ 139-105 victory over the 76ers on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: Dorell Wright wins this by a landslide. The Blazers reserve forward flat out dominated his former team. He made all five of his three-point attempts en route to finishing with 15 points in just 10 minutes of action. Talk about a happy homecoming for a player the Sixers didn’t attempt to resign this past summer.
Worst performance: This has to go to Evan Turner. The Sixers swingman scored just three points on 1-for-7 shooting. On the positive side, he did have four assists. But Turner must score points in order the Sixers to win games.
Best performance in a losing effort: This is a tough one. But Thad Young gets this despite Tony Wroten finishing with 18 points, seven assists, six rebounds and a blocked shot. While Wroten made just 5 of 15 shots, Young hit 7 of 9 en route to finishing with 15 points. The Sixers power forward, who made his lone three-point attempt, also finished with five rebounds, an assist and a steal. Young’s shooting 77.7 percent could not be overlooked.
