Simmons notched 19 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists and four steals across 40 minutes in Thursday's 128-108 victory over the Heat.
So far this series, Simmons has averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds, 9.7 assists, and two steals per game. His confidence has been a key factor in his production and he should continue to post similar numbers even with the return of Joel Embiid to the lineup in Game 3.
Simmons had 24 points (10-17 FG, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and two blocks in 39 minutes during Monday's 113-103 loss to the Heat.
Simmons closed in on yet another triple-double but was let down by the shooting of those around him. With the majority of the team struggling from the field, the offensive responsibility fell back onto Simmons and he came through with a team-high 24 points on 10-of-17 shooting. The 76ers will have four days off before traveling to Miami to face the Heat in a pivotal Game 3.
Simmons managed 17 points (5-13 FG, 7-10 FT), 14 assists, nine rebounds and two steals across 34 minutes in Philadelphia's 130-103 win over the Heat in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
Simmons once again was a substantial part of the Sixers' success, falling just a rebound short of a triple-double in the process and turning in the second-highest assist total in NBA history for a player making his postseason debut. The dynamic 2016 first overall pick has taken on an especially elevated role during the extended absence of Joel Embiid (orbital), and his elite ball distribution skills will continue to prominently figure into the team's attack even upon the latter's return to action at some point in the first round.
Simmons tallied 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 29 minutes in Tuesday's 121-113 win over the Hawks.
Simmons came into the game with flu like symptoms, but he still was able to play almost 30 minutes Tuesday night. Simmons didn't put up a great stat line, but it was still enough to earn a double-double as the young athlete is ready to roll in the postseason.
Simmons (illness) will play during Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Simmons woke up with flu-like symptoms, causing his status to be in flux throughout the day. But, he's ultimately recovered enough to take the floor. That said, it's possible he doesn't see his full workload due to the illness and the game's blowout potential.
