Nt”

The Philadelphia 76ers are undeniably missing Ben Simmons in all aspects of the game, but the one area where they are probably feeling his absence the most is on the defensive end.

Simmons has transformed himself into an All-NBA Defensive Player and he has locked up some of the game’s top scorers from Bradley Beal to Zach LaVine and others.

Despite playing all of five minutes since the All-Star break, and missing eight of nine games overall, the Sixers star is leading the league in total steals with 115 and steals per game at 2.1.

Simmons still has some work to do in his rehab from a nerve impingement issue in his back and he will remain out for a little while.
