PHLY Sixers Podcast | Brutal Tyrese Maxey performance dooms Sixers vs. Cavs

The Sixers hung tough against the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road despite a brutal Tyrese Maxey performance, with Maxey missing a potential game-tying step-back 3 as time expired that would have sent the game overtime. Maxey finished the night with just 16 points on 7-25 shooting in one of his worst performances of the season, struggling to get comfortable inside of the arc against a tough Cleveland defense, and misfiring from the perimeter. The Sixers nearly pulled the game out thanks to Kyle Lowry, who had his best performance in a Sixers uniform with 23 points on 7-12 shooting. Tobias Harris added 21 and Paul Reed 12 off the bench. Derek Bodner, Devon Givens, and Kyle Neubeck discuss the missed opportunity on the road. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
