Well, Tyrese Maxey did what he could.

The Philadelphia 76ers star was outstanding for the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night, setting up 32 points and 5 helps in a competition face-off with the Boston Celtics.

this one looked uncomplicated. < a href="https://t.co/jrcS2cMhJi">> pic.twitter.com/jrcS2cMhJi

It wasn’t enough in the group’s 117-99 loss, as the group’s other 4 beginners– Tobias Harris, Buddy Hield, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Paul Reed– shot a combined 8-of-36 from the field.

That’s horrendous, and fans and experts on social networks were frustrated on Maxey’s behalf:

Hell of a very first half for the Sixers to just be down 2 while shooting listed below 40%. Tyrese Maxey was wonderful on both ends. The Sixers require method more out of Tobias Harris, to put it perfectly.

Daniel Olinger @dan_olinger

Tyrese Maxey making a fantastic take on the very first play of the 2nd half just for Tobias to smoke the layup in shift feels poetic

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck

this is difficult to see with Harris at this moment

Unimpeachable Listmaker @unimplist

I actually have 2 primary ideas about this video game tonight concerning the Sixers:<< br><> < br>> 1. I believe this has actually been perhaps Maxey’s finest total video game this season and it would have been more obvious if his colleagues were excellent.<< br><> < br>> 2. Tobias Harris ought to never ever play another 2nd for the Sixers.

Mike @mhc_76

I can not think Tobias is torpedoing this Maxey efficiency

Luke Arcaini @ArcainiLuke

When you understand that Tyrese Maxey is the only above-average basketball gamer on the Sixers (besides Embiid), you’ll recognize that this group has no opportunity to win a title.

Maxey looks pissed for when, and I do not blame him. Somebody requires to assist him out there.

It would be clever not to have belongings where Maxey does not touch the ball when

A few of those takes may be a touch extreme, particularly because Mo Bamba (10 points, 6 rebounds), Cam Payne (13 points) and Ricky Council IV (16 points, 4 rebounds) had remarkably strong nights off the bench.

And the Celtics (46-12) are quite darn excellent, too. The three-headed beast of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Kristaps Porziņģis integrated for 82 points, with Tatum almost notching a triple-double (28 points, 11 rebounds, 8 helps), while Porziņģis supplied a double-double (23 points, 12 boards).
