My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from the 76ers’ 95-92 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday at Wells Fargo Center:
Best performance: This is a tough one, because Thaddeus Young made the game-winning three-pointer. That shot was huge. But the Sixers would not have been in position to win without Evan Turner. That’s why the 6-foot-7 swingman – not Young – wins this award. Turner scored 11 of his team-high 23 points in the fourth quarter. He also finished the game with seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and four turnovers.
Worst performance: This goes to Gerald Henderson. Let’s just say this was far from a happy homecoming for the former Episcopal Academy standout. The Bobcats shooting guard missed his first nine shot attempts en route to finishing with eight points on 2-for-14 shooting. A large portion of his attempts were awful selections.
Best performance in a losing effort: This is a tough one, because Al Jefferson dominated when he wanted to. But Kemba Walker’s game highs of 26 points and eight assists are hard to overlook. So that’s why the Bobcats point guard edges out the center. Walker made all six of his foul shots, grabbed five rebounds, had two steals, a blocked shot and just one turnover in 42 minutes.
