Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers wing Ben Simmons had his hands full on defense in the first half of Friday’s eventual 127-111 win over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

But with the Sixers clinging to a five-point lead at the break, and Simmons scoring just four points up to that point – matching his point total from Game 2 – Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers challenged him to do more. Simmons and fellow Sixers star Joel Embiid scored or assisted on 30 of Philly’s 34 points in the period.

“That was definitely the quarter they were able to get their momentum and get separation,” said Young, who still scored a game-high 28 points on 9-for-17 shooting and made eight assists.
