Doc Rivers, the 76ers coach, praised Tyrese Maxey after his 32-point outing as they defeated the Sacramento Kings 129-127 on Sunday, January 22.
"Tyrese was phenomenal. Throughout the game, he just kept attacking. I thought he struggled until we subbed him and brought him back in," Rivers said.
"Once he came back in, he was great. That was a resilient win by our guys. Everyone who played did something to help us win tonight. It’s a team win.
“They have some good players,” Huerter said. “This is a team that, when healthy, you can put against anyone in the East.”
