His play on that end has helped Maxey take steps forward, and it shows.
“I watched a lot of Matisse’s film, and I just learned so much in a little span of knowing him,” Maxey explained. “Just talking to him and watching that film, and I just had to get better and better every single day. 1% better every single day on the defensive end.”
Philadelphia forced 18 turnovers from Detroit on Saturday and a lot of that has to be credited to Maxey’s activity.
As Philadelphia continues to get itself into gear for the playoffs, Maxey will play a big role.
