Article Summary:

Morant, who is in his third season, was just voted to his first All-Star game as a starter, and he has established himself as one of the most dynamic players in the league. The Kentucky product has done an extremely admirable job in his first season starting for Philadelphia in Ben Simmons’ absence and the win over Memphis proved to be one of his most impressive performances of the season. “His speed all throughout the game, his energy level, big plays in the fourth quarter and overtime, really the whole game. He just had that energy, that look in him out there that he wanted to get to it and he had a great night for us. A big reason why we won that game.”

Despite the plethora of injury issues that they’ve had to deal with, and the fact that one of their best players has refused to play for the team all season, the Sixers now sit just a half-game out of the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings. While Embiid’s MVP-worthy play is the main reason for the team’s success, Maxey’s play has also been a big factor, and his value to the Sixers was on full display against the Grizzlies.
