Jonathon Simmons dropped 17 points with four rebounds and two steals against the Rockets Sunday night.
Simmons was an integral part of the Spurs small-ball lineups and shot a respectable 2-for-5 from beyond the arc. The Rockets have shown that they will switch off Simmons to guard the pick-and-roll so it’s crucial that he keeps the defense honest by hitting his 3s. His defensive assignment was James Harden and he played him well, but The Beard had it going tonight. Expect to see more of Simmons in this series as he’s carved out a role in the rotation.
