My look at some of the best and worst performances and from the Orlando Magic’s 101-90  victory over the 76ers on Wednesday at Wells Fargo Center: 

Best performance: This was a tough one with the Magic having three players finish with double-doubles. Yet, I had to give it to Orlando center Nik Vucevic, who finished with game highs of 21 points and 13 rebounds. The 7-foot, 250-pounder also had three blocked shots and two assists in 33 minutes, 37 seconds of action.

 Worst performance:  This goes to Byron Mullens. The reserve center, who was acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in last week’s trade, struggled a little in his second game with the Sixers. The 7-footer missed eight of his 11 field-goal attempts en route to finishing with seven points. He was 2-for-7 on three-pointers.

Best performance in a losing effort: Henry Sims gets this award after producing 10 points, six rebounds and a blocked shot in 23 minutes, 26 seconds of action. The center, who was acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers in last week’s trade, proved that he could be solid player for the  Sixers moving forward.

 Best defensive performance:  Kyle O’Quinn wins this. The forward blocked a game-high four shots and had a steal off the bench.

 Worst statistic: You have to give this to the Sixers shooting 36.8 percent (32-for-87) on three-pointers

Best statistic: This award goes to the Sixers recording a season-low eight turnovers
