Cheers to Ben Simmons

Cheers to Ben Simmons

The 76ers All-Star point guard bounced back from an underwhelming Game 1 performance, leading the Sixers to victory Monday night. How the Philly fans responded to Ben Simmons, and vice versa, when he played poorly Saturday afternoon has been a notable topic the last few days.

Sixers vs. Nets Game 2 Postgame Quotes

Brett Brown, PHI On Ben Simmons’ offensive performance… I think in the light of day, when you have a team performance that wasn’t what we all wanted [in Game 1] and he had an individual performance that was what—I know wasn’t what he would have wanted and I think for him to respond to that the way that he did, he was extremely aggressive.
