Tyrese Maxey sees positive things in 76ers’ loss to Nuggets


The 76ers were without Joel Embiid and James Harden as they lost narrowly against the Nuggets (111-116). Tyrese Maxey who was the game’s top scorer with 29 points took some positive things from the loss.

He liked how Philadelphia refused to give up and fought until the very end. The Sixers were down by 14 points at the start of the fourth quarter but managed to narrow the gap to just 3 points.

Via Sam DiGiovanni of ClutchPoints:

“I feel like we fought,” the Sixers star said to reporters after the game. “That group at the end, they fought their tails off at the end to get back in it. I think what we can take from this is in the first half we were in the game big time. One thing we can take from this is how deep we are. Guys like [Danuel] House, who hasn’t played in a couple games, comes in and contributes. P-Reed had a hell of a game. De’Anthony [Melton] started. The list goes on and on, you know what I mean? So, I think that’s one thing that we can take from this.”

Despite the loss, Philadelphia (49-26) retained the third place in the Eastern Conference.
