Ever since returning to the Sixers following a four-game skid, Simmons’ team hasn’t lost. “A lot of it doesn’t show. He had a play in the third quarter that he just put so much pressure on the defense, and the ball went around the horn. He gets nothing out of that except that play led to us getting a three-pointer – that’s what he keeps doing.”
In 26 minutes, Simmons finished the night with 18 total points on Friday. Considering how well he’s played over the last three games, it’s safe to say Simmons is physically feeling good after battling sickness. Mentally, he’s getting there as well as the Sixers take on their final nine games of the season.
