Ben Simmons shot 6-of-9 in Wednesday’s 119-105 victory, posting 13 points, seven rebounds and nine assists with two steals in 25 minutes of work.
Simmons also hit his only free throw of the night in a nice change of pace. Joel Embiid contributed 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in only 20 minutes. Neither player went totally bananas in a great matchup but the Sixers had things wrapped up by halftime and were up by 30 after three on the hapless Grizzlies. There will be better days ahead for both as the Sixers will need some four-quarter efforts going forward.
