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.
Simmons produced a typical well-rounded stat line in Saturday's win, grabbing eight boards and handing out eight dimes to go with his 15 points. He's a nightly threat to put up a triple-double and has averaged 21.3 points, 9.7 assists and 7.3 rebounds in the 76ers' three playoff wins.
Simmons exploded for 31 points (11-13 FG, 9-11 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, three blocks, and two steals in 38 minutes during Thursday's 131-115 Game 3 win over the Nets.
Simmons was absolutely sensational, pouring in a playoff career high scoring total while missing only two field goal attempts and two free throws. The Nets even decided to purposely send Simmons to the charity stripe in the latter stages of the fourth quarter, but the sophomore continued to sink them. If Joel Embiid (knee) sits out Saturday's Game 4 as well, Simmons will likely look to score more than usual yet again.
