Ben Simmons narrowly missed his third triple-double of the season, tallying 11 points, 16 rebounds, nine assists and a block in Saturday's loss.
Simmons said after the game, “Overall, I feel solid," in regards to his recent left knee issues. And he filled up the box score as usual, but on a night where Joel Embiid was absent, he shot just 3-of-9 from the field and air balled a wide open three down seven points with less than four minutes left in the game (video below). His scoring has dropped from 16.4 in 2020 to 12.4 this season, and we know he's a great defender, but his inability to shoot the ball is a tragedy for Sixers fans and fantasy managers alike. Philly really missed out on not getting James Harden. Yesterday 11:25 pm (EST)
