The Philadelphia 76ers point guard scored a career-high 50 points to lift his team to a 137-126 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night. In addition, Maxey managed to provide 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 blocks.

“This had nothing to do with me,” Maxey said of the Sixers’ victory after the game. “This is all Kelly Oubre. We’re praying for him. Love my dawg. I just met him, but I love him. I hope he gets well soon.” Maxey dedicated his performance to Oubre, who suffered a fractured rib after being hit by a car on Saturday night.

Joel Embiid also emerged as a key player in the Sixers’ win, scoring 37 points. With this win, Philadelphia takes their record to 8-1, putting them firmly in first place on the Eastern Conference standings. The 76ers and the Pacers are set to rematch on Tuesday night.
