Saric had 27 points (8-14 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 8-11 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 114-112 loss to Boston. Saric had arguably his best game of the post-season, recording a double-double while also chipping in across the board. It was a nice finish to the season for Saric who exceeded many expectations with his play across the season. There is no reason to believe he will regress as he moves into his third season and owners will be looking at drafting him in the mid-rounds of most standard leagues.
Saric managed 25 points (9-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 39 minutes during Philadelphia's 103-92 win over the Celtics in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round playoff series. Saric enjoyed his best all-around game of the postseason, posting a playoff-high scoring total while generating his second-best rebound total of the series. Saric's 52.9 percent success rate from the floor was his highest since Game 1 of the first-round series versus the Heat, and his elevated offensive usage clearly provided the 76ers with a much-needed boost. He'll look to repeat the feat when Philadelphia once again tries to stay alive in Wednesday's Game 5.
Saric pitched in 12 points (5-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Philadelphia's 117-101 loss to the Celtics in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round series. Saric bounced back nicely from the pair of subpar shooting efforts he'd generated in the last two games of the first-round series against the Heat. The 24-year-old had drained just six of 22 attempts over those contests, but Monday's 45.5 percent success rate from the floor was his best since Game 1 of that series. Saric also encouragingly kept up his strong work on the boards, while his assists total equaled his second best of the postseason. He'll look to churn out another strong effort when the Sixers attempt to notch their first victory of the series in Thursday's Game 2.
Saric had only eight points (2-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 104-91 victory over Miami. Saric had a quiet game Tuesday, recording just eight points with no defensive stats. He has seen his output drop since the return of Joel Embiid but this is likely just an off period for Saric. The fact the team was able to win without his regular contribution bodes well for the next round where they will face the winner of the Boston Milwaukee series.
Saric posted 21 points (7-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes in Thursday's 128-108 win over the Heat. Saric has now contributed over 20 points in each of the three games this series, as his offensive consistency has helped make him a force that the Heat have to worry about, thus freeing up other options on the floor. Saric's efficiency will help him stay on the floor, and his rebound totals have also been a benefit to the team thus far.
