Ben Simmons scored 22 points to go with 12 boards on Monday.
Simmons went 9-for-14 from the field and 4-of-6 at the line. He added a steal and a block to his line and committed five turnovers. Rookie of the Year is all but a lock as long as Simmons stays healthy. He’s well outside of the top-50 and doesn’t have a good chance of breaking that zone due to his free throw shooting and turnovers, but he’s one of the most poised rookies so far and his production won’t slow down. Him and Joel Embiid have a great thing going for them.
