Ben Simmons finished Saturday’s 107-102 win over the Nuggets shooting 3-of-9 from the floor for six points, six boards, six dimes, five turnovers and five fouls.
It was a rare 5×5 night for the Sixers’ rookie, although not exactly one to be proud of. At the end of the day, his team got the win so he’ll be happy with that result. Fantasy owners will be less satisfied however. He’s still one of the front-runners for ROY and he’ll have his ups and downs, like most rookies do. His owners just have to take the bad with the good and hope that he takes a more active role in Sunday’s game against the Suns.
