Simmons ended with 13 points (4-5 FG, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, three blocks, and one steal in 42 minutes during Sunday's 92-90 loss to Toronto. Simmons attempted just five field-goals Sunday, ending with 13 points to go with a full line. In what was a low scoring encounter, the 76ers held on until the last second with Kawhi Leonard nailing a memorable baseline jumper as time expired. For Simmons and the 76ers, it was a disappointing end to what has been a somewhat indifferent season. Simmons failed to take the leap many had predicted with his lack of a jump shot certainly becoming more of an issue during his sophomore year. He has a number of small issues to focus on during the offseason and will look to come back a more rounded player next season.
Simmons supplied 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, and six assists in 34 minutes during Thursday's 112-101 Game 6 win over the Raptors. Simmons bounced back in a big way following Tuesday's terrible showing, providing an efficient scoring performance while protecting possession (zero turnovers). Simmons had been held to single digits in scoring in two of the first five games of this series, with two of those double-digit outings being 10-point efforts. Nevertheless, Simmons picked a good time to raise his level of play, and he'll look to stay aggressive during Sunday's Game 7.
Simmons finished with 10 points (5-13 FG), seven rebounds and seven assists across 36 minutes in the 76ers' win over the Raptors on Thursday. Simmons ended Thursday's win with just 10 points, though he added quality rebounding and assist numbers to bolster his final stat line. Simmons can't be counted on for his scoring on a nightly basis, though he does enough with rebounds, assists and steals to make him a serviceable daily play.
Simmons collected 14 points (7-8 FG, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's 108-95 Game 1 loss to the Raptors. Simmons was extremely efficient as a scorer, but his assist total was abnormally low. Simmons struggled with ball control during the regular season series versus the Raptors, averaging 8.0 turnovers per game against Toronto in 2018-19. Perhaps this explains his conservative passing approach (two turnovers) here in Game 1, but regardless Simmons will likely try to impose his will a bit more during Monday's Game 2.
Simmons accumulated 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 FT), five rebounds and six assists over 27 minutes in Tuesday's Game 5 against Brooklyn. Simmons shot 60 percent from the field and contributed across the board to close out the series with a 122-100 victory. The 22-year-old point guard got off to a slow start to the first round and was held to nine points in Game 1, but he bounced back with four consecutive performances of 13 points or more. Simmons and the Sixers will face off against Toronto in the next round.
