Anfernee Simons got his first start of the season in place of Damian Lillard (back spasms) on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans and he did reasonably well, putting up 13 points (4-of-13 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
The only other start of Simons' career was last season's finale in which he played all 48 minutes and scored 37 points. He won't be matching that anytime soon, but tonight's serviceable line is another step in the right direction for the 20-year-old. Simons is not worth rostering in a standard league, but he's a fine 3-point streamer, especially when he gets spot starts like this.
