Ben Simmons' interior scoring highlights Sixers' win over Heat

Ben Simmons punctuated his preseason with improved touch at the basket. Ben Simmons catalyzed a 119-95 Sixers win in the team's preseason finale, contributing 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The kicker? Simmons looked noticeably more comfortable attacking in one-on-one situations and in motion. Throughout October, Simmons' rigid touch around the basket, reluctance to shoot at times, and ability to handle contact all limited his efficiency. An exceptional 9-of-11 from the floor, with the majority of his looks coming near the basket, Simmons needed this type of spark for himself...

Terry Rozier leads rout of Sixers, Aron Baynes sprains left knee

Second unit runs Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons out of TD Garden BOSTON — The Celtics’ second team was first rate Monday night at TD Garden. The starting lineup of Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, Aaron Baynes, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum raced out to a 37-20 lead after a quarter and blew away Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons and the visiting Philadelphia 76ers, 113-96, to remain perfect in the preseason. Boston finishes its preseason Wednesday in Charlotte, with the season opener Oct. 17 in Cleveland. Coach Brad Stevens used the game to rest his three stars, as Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and...

It’s a New Day: Robert Covington

It’s a New Day: Robert Covington

The power of positivity - and the additions of J.J. Redick and Ben Simmons - should help Robert Covington immensely this season. The development of Philadelphia 76ers' forward Robert Covington closely mirrors that of The New Day, the WWE tag team whose name we've lovingly appropriated as the theme for 2017-18 player preview series. In late 2014, Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were saddled with mid-card level gimmicks that generated no pop or heat from the crowd. The trio was first repackaged as a gospel-tinged stable, but after a bit of a heel turn, The New Day has firmly...

Celtics vs. Sixers Preview/Game Thread

“R-E-L-A-X” - Aaron Rodgers, Me... and Markelle Fultz, probably. Expectations are a funny thing. With years of not expecting much of anything, it was very easy to watch any 76ers game without the stress of consequence. Losses paved the road for tank, while wins were just feel good moments for the team. However, this year, there is a noticeable, maybe unrealistic, bar of expectation that’s been put on the shoulders of this young team. While Ben Simmons’ much anticipated debut was everything fans have been dreaming of for the past year, Markelle Fultz had a hot-take producing...

David Fizdale Gushes About Ben Simmons

David Fizdale Gushes About Ben Simmons

Sixers fans aren’t the only ones who have been impressed with Ben Simmons this pre-season. Following the Sixers’ loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, David Fizdale (he of, “Take that for data!” fame), came away dazzled by the Sixers’ young forward. When asked for his thoughts on Simmons, Fizdale responded: Oh my god, I don’t want to see that for the next 15 years. That kid, they’re not talking about him enough — the way he moves with the ball, his ability to see the floor, the way he can get places on the floor. Then once he gets confidence in his shot where you really got to...
