Shake Milton hit 6-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, five rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes and another start on Monday.
Milton missed his only shot and failed to score in 19 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday but looked much better tonight. He hit an incredible game-winning 3-pointer to give the Sixers a one-point lead with six seconds left, but it was anything but ordinary. Shake inbounded the ball to Al Horford and then relaxed, just watching the action and waiting for Joel Embiid or Tobias Harris to get the final look. But Horford clearly startled Milton by passing it back to him and he just kind of fired up the three, which was nearly a swish. Milton should start for the Sixers until further notice and probably gained a lot of confidence tonight. Yesterday 11:01 pm (EST)
