Jonathon Simmons scored 18 points and handed out four assists with a steal in Thursday night’s series clincher against Houston.
The hometown kid showed up big time in his first playoff start. Simmons played much better than the box score showed. He was all over the floor on defense and made decisive and smart decisions with the ball. Powering through on drives in the lane and standing his ground and hounding James Harden all night, Simmons has earned himself a fat paycheck this summer. Expect to see a lot more Simmons next series as San Antonio will face the deadliest small ball lineup in the league.
