Ben Simmons continued his phenomenal rookie year on Wednesday night tallying 19 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and four turnovers in the Sixers’ 119-109 victory over the Hawks.
Simmons is proving to be well worth the hype so far this season. He dished out five assists in each of his first two games which was a nice sign. Ended up being just a prelude to greater things as he hasn’t had less than eight assists in every game since. He knows his limitations so he’s stayed away from the 3-point line and he’s struggled from the charity stripe, shooting just 56 percent to this point. But beyond that, this kid is crushing.
