76ers-Warriors Best/Worst: Green, Okafor and three-point shooting woes

T.J. McConnell collides with Draymond Green
Philadelphia 76ers' TJ McConnell collides with Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green during the third quarter on Monday, Feb. 24, 2017 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The Warriors beat the Sixers 119-108.

Some of the best and worst performances from the Golden State Warriors’ 119-108 victory over the 76ers on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center:

Best performance: Draymond Green gets this on a night when four of his teammates – Kevin Durant (27 points), Klay Thompson (21), Steph Curry (19) and Zaza Pachulia (16) – scored more points. Green had a solid all-around game. The Warriors power forward finished with 14 points, six rebounds and game highs of 11 assists and five steals. If there was one negative, it was his four turnovers.  However, Green graded out at a plus-22, meaning the Warriors outscored the Sixers by 22 points when he was on the court.

Worst performance: This goes to Jahlil Okafor. The Sixers center had more fouls (five) than rebounds (three) against the Warriors. He also finished with four points on 2-for-3 shooting one game after finishing with a season-high 28.  The second-year player committed seven turnovers and graded out with a game-worst minus-15.

Best performance by a Sixer: You have to give this to Okafor’s backup Richaun Holmes on a night when he was  his squad’s third-leading scorer. The second-year veteran made 6 of 11 shots – including going 1 of 3 on three-pointers – to finish with 15 points. Holmes also had a game-high three blocked shots, one steal and graded out at team-best plus-four.

Best defensive performance: With five steals, Green is the logical person to win this award. The NBA All-Star was a solid on-ball defender the whole game, shutting down the Sixers.

Worst statistic: How can you not give this to the Warriors’ first-half, three-point shooting? They made just 1 of 16 (6.3 percent).

Best statistic: This award goes to the Warriors’ assists. They had 31 on 40 made baskets.
