Simmons contributed 17 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, three steals and a block in 35 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Nets.
Simmons' 17 points were the most he's scored in a game since dropping 22 back on March 23. While Simmons hasn't really been much of a scorer all season, April has been worst offensive month yet at just 10.8 points per game. His assists are down this month, too -- just 5.8 per game. The one improvement for Simmons has been on the defensive side of the ball, as his 2.0 steals per game are the highest he's had in any month this season.
