Payton Pritchard scores 17 off bench in loss Fri.January 14, 2022 | 06:53 PM
Payton Pritchard came off the bench and scored 17 points to go with four assists, three rebounds, three triples, and one steal in 24 minutes of action as the Sixers beat the Celtics 111-99 on Friday night.
Analysis: Pritchard shot 7-of-10 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the three-point line in Friday's loss. The Celtics were without Marcus Smart, who missed his second straight game with a thigh injury, and Boston got absolutely nothing from Dennis Schroder, who scored one point in 25 minutes on Friday. For those reasons, Pritchard got a boost, but we don't expect these types of performances to become common.
