Article Summary:

In Sunday’s Game 1, which was played much tighter, Simmons had 15 assists and 15 rebounds but just six points.

“That’s the point of basketball, right? People who have it going, you have to give them the ball. I’m not surprised Doc said that because Doc knows the game,” he said. “A lot of these people who are saying things haven’t played the game.”

Simmons, who came into the game averaging 14.6 points in 23 career postseason games, had his highest-scoring playoff game since he put up 31 against the Brooklyn Nets in 2018.

“I told him, ‘You’ve got all the space and all the time in the world. Just attack,'” said Embiid, who matched Simmons with a team-high 22 points in Game 2.
