Simmons totaled 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 114-112 loss to Boston.
Simmons and the 76ers fought hard but eventually fell to the Celtics in Game Five of their playoff series, eliminating them from the post-season. Simmons was somewhat underwhelming in this series, taking some of the shine off what has been a spectacular rookie season. Simmons and his young teammates are going to learn a lot from this defeat and will likely come back bigger and stronger next season. The future is bright in Philadelphia.
Simmons accounted for 19 points (6-15 FG, 7-8 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Philadelphia's 103-92 win over the Celtics in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round playoff series.
Simmons made up for his critical miscue in Game 3, one that led to an Al Horford steal that helped seal the Celtics' overtime victory. The second-year pro's scoring total was his best since Game 3 of the first-round series against the Heat, while his rebound haul served as his highest since he'd also recorded 13 rebounds in Game 4 of the first-round series. Simmons' contributions figure to once again be pivotal to the Sixers' efforts in Wednesday's Game 5.
Simmons offered 16 points (8-14 FG), eight rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and one steal across 43 minutes during Philadelphia's 101-98 overtime loss to the Celtics in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round playoff series.
Simmons bounced back on the stat sheet from a nightmarish Game 2 in which he tallied a single point over 31 minutes. However, he also committed a game-changing turnover when his inbounds pass with 3.9 seconds left in overtime was stolen by Al Horford, who was subsequently fouled and drained a pair of free throws that gave the Celtics the final margin of victory. Simmons will look to step up his production further when Philadelphia attempts to avoid a series sweep in Monday's Game 4.
Simmons posted 18 points (6-11 FG, 6-11 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 42 minutes during Philadelphia's 117-101 loss to the Celtics in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal-round playoff series.
Simmons logged a game-high amount of minutes, but he also committed the most turnovers (seven) on either squad. The second-year star's scoring total was his best since Game 3 of the first-round series versus the Heat, although he failed to hit double digits in the rebounding column for the first time since Game 2 against Miami. Simmons still finished with a trademark solid all-around line, and he'll look to up his contributions further when the Sixers attempt to even the series in Thursday's Game 2.
Simmons totaled 14 points (4-10 FG, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 104-91 victory over the Heat.
Simmons was relatively quiet in the series-clinching victory but still managed to chip in across the board to round out what has been a spectacular series for the rookie. A positive to come out of this game was the fact that he went 6-of-7 from the free-throw line, bucking the trend that has seen him struggle from the line all season. He is practically a lock for the Rookie of the Year award and will enjoy the challenge of leading the young 76ers squad into the second round of the playoffs.
