Sixers guard Tyrese Maxey was excited to battle against Blazers star duo

USA Today


Article Summary:

Maxey had himself an impressive performance going for 28 points on 9-for-17 shooting while knocking down all nine of his free throws with nine assists and zero turnovers while battling against some elite competitors. Lillard had 39 points for Portland while McCollum had 18 so there were more lessons for the young Maxey to learn from, especially from Lillard.

“It’s great,” said Maxey. “It’s basketball so it’s a competition. You want to go against the best of the best and you want to stop the best of the best. You got to go through them to be who you want to be. He’s a great player, C.J. is a great player, the coaching staff does a great job of getting them into actions to get them to score. They are tough covers and it was cool. It was fun. Hats off to them.”

Maxey is continuing to grow as a player so now, he has to be able to take these lessons and add to his game.
