76ers rookie Ben Simmons didn’t succumb to the pressure in his first career playoff game on Saturday.
Simmons finished one rebound shy of a triple-double, with 17 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds in the 130-103 blowout win over the Heat.
He also treated fans to a highlight-reel play in the third quarter. Simmons used a sick crossover to blow by Kelly Olynyk, and then finished off the play with a dunk. He wasn’t done there, though, as he flexed to show the fans at Wells Fargo Center what he had just done.
A star is rising right in front of our very eyes.
