Philadelphia 76ers's Tyrese Maxey Joins Allen Iverson in Franchise Record Book

On Saturday afternoon (9th January 2021), Philadelphia 76ers rookie Tyrese Maxey made his first-ever NBA start as most of the Sixers roster sat out due to injury or COVID-19 health and safety protocols. As expected, the Sixers couldn't come out on top against a tough Denver Nuggets team while shorthanded. But regardless of the loss, the Sixers came out feeling good about the progress of their rookie first-round pick. In 43 minutes of action on Saturday, Maxey shot 18 for 33 from the field. With no shortage of offensive opportunities, Maxey accounted for a game-high of 39 points along with seven rebounds, six assists, and two steals. He then found out that his 39-points was the highest point total from a Sixers rookie since 76ers Hall of Famer Allen Iverson drained 40 points against the Washington Bullets back in April of 1997. "It's bittersweet," Maxey said.
