Ben Simmons drains first-ever NBA three-pointer, goes nuts celebrating (Video)

By

76ers point guard Ben Simmons has reportedly been working on his outside shot, and it showed in Tuesday’s preseason game against the Guangzhou Long-Lions.

Simmons has been tearing teams apart with his dribble-drive since entering the league, but the knock on him is that he doesn’t have an outside shot to respect. In fact, he had never drained a three-pointer in an NBA game.

…Until Tuesday, that is.

Simmons stepped up and absolutely drained a three-pointer during the exhibition contest, and he went nuts celebrating with his teammates afterward.

That’s it — just hand the Sixers the title now.
