Ben Simmons scored 15 points, pulled down six boards, and recorded two blocks in Monday’s loss to the Celtics.
Simmons added a steal, two assists, and shot 6-for-12 from the field. Once again he displayed his all-around versatility, but the glaring weaknesses are still there. He shot an abysmal 3-for-10 from the line and didn’t attempt a single 3-pointer. The shooting will be a roller coaster ride as it is with most rookies and if you’re going for a punt free throw build Simmons might be worth a look in the later rounds, but he’s being overdrafted in most leagues.
