Ben Simmons lit up the Heat on Friday night for 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting, seven rebounds, five assists, one block and zero turnovers in just 18 minutes.
Granted, the Heat didn’t play their starters long in this one but Simmons controlled the game from the start and was a +18 while on the floor. He is showing the potential that people spoke of before being drafted last summer and that potential is downright scary. Simmons is a mid-late round target with serious upside.
