We in the West-West and Ben Simmons just landed his first ASG appearance!
Shit just feels so good as we have two of the best in the game as Ben and Jojo is one hell of a duo. No matter what, the Warriors are the best team in the game and will be up for this challenge as they know the Sixers play tough. Remember all those close games with the Warriors during the tanking years?
Drop it like it’s hot… yes, the Dubs are hot.
Oh, well. I’m ready and you know Simmons is going to give his best after getting that ASG call.

Warriors are beatable, though. I mean, I’m not feeling the win but I’m ready. Also, why does Boogie look like he’s playing in Game 7?
There it is… my bad. it’s his first home game. lol

Good first half by the Sixers. Tied up after one and looking like they’re ready for a tough second half. Do you believe?
Half time chat… don’t ever get a tattoo you can’t read.
Ben Simmons was the only Sixers in double-digits at 15. We’re very lucky to still be in this game. Look for Steph Curry to fill it up from deep.

Sixers are balling! Simmons is out here airmailing turnaround jumpers and all! Love it. Sixers outscored the Warriors by 13 in the third and have turned the game upside down. Even went on a 10-0 run.
OK, on the real though. Jojo raised up his bully-style on the Warriors. Especially Looney. Ended the third up nine after outscoring the Warriors by 16. Few people believe the Sixers will finish this off even though they’re up by double digits at times.

JJ Reddick hits a three to put the Sixers up 10 with 10 minutes to play. If another player can help besides Ben and Joel, I will like our chances a hell of a lot more. Obviously.
Behind a 26 point, 8 rebound, 6 assist and 3 steal performance from Ben Simmons (and a little bit of cold perimeter shooting from the Warriors), the Sixers beat Golden State in Oakland, snapping the Warriors’ 11-game winning streak.

They did it! Easily one of the biggest regular season wins I have ever seen by the Sixers [whatever that means]. Simmons finished with 26/8/6 and was the leader all night long. Down the stretch, you could slowly see Joel taking advantage of every mismatch. A true warrior of a performance. Pun intended.
What a game!
