How Ben Simmons is making a leap

Article Summary:

Over his last 14 games, Simmons is averaging 6.2 free throw attempts per game, taking him to a career-high 5.6 attempts for the season.

When using pick-and-rolls, if Simmons’ defender is sagging off or other teams are using drop coverage to keep their rim protector by the paint, utilizing Simmons’ size and strength as a screener gives the Sixers another option to get guards open. A couple of days after Simmons’ career game against the Jazz, Rivers personally sent Simmons film to highlight what he can do as a screener and what the team needs from him in that regard every game.

Again, Simmons’ physicality stands out when he’s looking to attack smaller defenders or use his strength to back down opponents.
