NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Molly Sullivan spoke to Ben Simmons following the Philadelphia 76ers’ 104-99 win over the Utah Jazz and said he didn’t disappoint in Joel Embiid’s absence.
Despite putting up 16 points, 13 rebounds and six assists, he called it his worst performance in his brief NBA career.

Simmons was just 7-of-22 from the field, but by no means did he play poorly. He also added three blocks and three steals and this emphatic dunk in the Sixers’ fifth straight win.
