Of course, turnovers are also going to be part of the story, and Simmons played a big role in forcing Doncic into coughing the ball up seven times.

While it’s easy to point to the possessions that ended with a Doncic shot or turnover, there’s much more to the game than that. Simmons didn’t limit Doncic, he largely took him out of the game altogether.

In the second quarter, Doncic tries to go quick without the screen, but Simmons shuts off that drive, so he’s eventually forced to call for the big man.
