Doc Rivers explains taking Ben Simmons off the floor amid Hack-a-Ben

USA Today


Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons does so many good things for the team on the floor that it’s hard to justify taking him out for any stretch. In Game 2, coach Doc Rivers took him off the floor when the Atlanta Hawks went to the Hack-a-Ben strategy. The move seemed to contradict what Rivers said in D.C., but he also took Matisse Thybulle off the floor so he had a reason.

“We took him and Matisse out because we had an extra timeout,” Rivers explained.
