Prayers to my boy @Tyrese Maxey 🙏🏽 – 12:46 AM

Doc Rivers says the Sixers went into tonight’s game expecting Tyrese Maxey would play about 15 minutes.
Pleasantly surprised that he played a lot more and did well, which Rivers identified as one of the few positives from a game he says his team “didn’t deserve to win.” – 9:43 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Doc Rivers said they initially only expected Maxey to play 15 minutes tonight, low minute count expectation was a factor in the decision to bring him off the bench – 9:42 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Looked like Delon Wright stepped on Tyrese Maxey’s foot and rolled his ankle. Hawks immediately called for help. Hopefully it’s nothing serious. – 9:08 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers ended that half on a 38-20 run to be tied at halfitme. Bench was good, particularly Maxey. Then a good Harris stretch to close the half.
But this team’s 3-point shooting, and what the overall lack of confidence does to the offense, is a major problem right now. – 8:09 PM

Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
Despite a slow start, the @Philadelphia 76ers climb out of a 19-point first-half hole to take a 51-51 tie into halftime.
Maxey: 11 PTS / 4-8 FG
Harris: 10 PTS / 2 AST
Embiid: 7 PTS / 5 REB
Curry: 5 PTS / 3 AST – 8:07 PM

In an unsurprising turn of events, a Tyrese Maxey to Matisse Thybulle alley oop is something @Philadelphia 76ers fans seem to really enjoy – 8:05 PM

Hawks have a 17-6 rebounding advantage over the Sixers after the first quarter.
A brutal quarter for the team as a whole outside of Tyrese Maxey. – 7:34 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Tyrese Maxey has given this team a spark. Philly within 32-18 after a step back triple at the buzzer after being down 32-13. Maxey had 9 points in that 1st quarter. #Sixers7:33 PM

Tyler Johnson checking in now, making his @Philadelphia 76ers debut.
Out there now:
Maxey / Joe / Johnson / Reed / Bassey – 7:31 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Philly is off to a slow start against an undermanned Hawks team. Tyrese Maxey enters the game now so let’s see if he can give a spark. #Sixers7:19 PM

Everyone was reported safe, and the team is working with Maxey to make sure he and his family have everything they need. At this time, there are no reported injures, and the cause of the fire remains unknown. -via 6ABC.com / December 25, 2021

Former Miami Heat player Meyers Leonard, who was traded from the team earlier this year, sold his waterfront Bay Point home for $11 million. Leonard and his wife, Elle Leonard, owned the home at 741 Buttonwood Lane for a year. They paid nearly $7.8 million for the property last December, which means they flipped it for 41 percent more than their purchase price. -via The Real Deal / December 21, 2021

Kemba Walker’s Brookline mansion has sold months after the Boston Celtics traded the All-Star point guard to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The 9,592-square-foot Brookline mansion at 37 Sears Road closed for an undisclosed sum on Oct. 26, according to filings made public this week with the Norfolk County Registry District of the Land Court and in an Instagram post from Newbrook Realty founder Samantha Stumpo, who has now sold the home twice. -via Boston Globe / December 7, 2021
