Dec. 15 7:55 PM PT8:55 PM MT9:55 PM CT10:55 PM ET3:55 GMT11:55 8:55 PM MST10:55 PM EST7:55 UAE (+1)04:5522:55 ET9:55 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 12 points Friday on 6-of-10 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-117 in triple overtime. Simmons pulled down nine rebounds and dished out 11 assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 51:33 on the floor. He tacked on four steals.
Analysis: Simmomns played 51:33 in this one, second-most in the league this season to Russell Westbrook's 52:08. Simmons' scoring has dipped a little of late but he's a triple-double threat every night. He's averaged 15.9 points, 8.7 assists and 8.6 rebounds in his last nine games.
Dec. 13 10:28 PM PT11:28 PM MT12:28 AM CT1:28 AM ET6:28 GMT14:28 11:28 PM MST1:28 AM EST10:28 UAE07:281:28 ET12:28 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored seven points Tuesday on 3-of-8 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 118-112 in overtime. Simmons pulled down three rebounds and had eight assists, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 40:20 of playing time. He added one steal.
Analysis: This wasn't one of Simmons' better games, as he committed seven turnovers, didn't score until the fourth quarter and rebounded well below his season rate. Though prone to the occasional clunker, the 21-year-old is still averaging a very useful 16 points, 10 assists, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals over his last five contests.
Dec. 11 7:38 AM PT8:38 AM MT9:38 AM CT10:38 AM ET15:38 GMT23:38 8:38 AM MST10:38 AM EST19:38 UAE16:3810:38 ET9:38 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 27 points Sunday, going 10 of 16 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the New Orleans Pelicans 131-124. Simmons pulled down five rebounds and had 10 assists, tallying a plus-minus of -4 in his 35:53 of playing time. He added one block.
Analysis: Simmons has been quite a pleasant surprise, averaging 18 points, 9.2 rebounds and 7.7 assists in his "rookie" season. He's even making a surprising 50.7 percent from the field. If you took a chance on him in your draft, congratulations.
Dec. 9 8:38 PM PT9:38 PM MT10:38 PM CT11:38 PM ET4:38 GMT12:38 9:38 PM MST11:38 PM EST8:38 UAE05:3823:38 ET10:38 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 14 points Saturday on 7-of-13 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-98. Simmons pulled down six rebounds and had 10 assists, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 35:32 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: Coming off his third career triple-double Thursday against the Lakers, Simmons is now averaging an impressive nine assists over his last five games and 9.3 rebounds in his past four. On the negative side, the highly skilled 21-year-old's scoring numbers have taken a dip lately and he's committed 29 turnovers over his last six games after having seven Saturday.
Dec. 7 8:04 PM PT9:04 PM MT10:04 PM CT11:04 PM ET4:04 GMT12:04 9:04 PM MST11:04 PM EST8:04 UAE05:0423:04 ET10:04 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 12 points Thursday on 6-of-14 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 107-104. Simmons grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 15 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +9 in his 42:35 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: This is Simmons' third triple-double of the campaign. The 15 assists were a nice touch and good for his fantasy owners.
Dec. 4 1:45 PM PT2:45 PM MT3:45 PM CT4:45 PM ET21:45 GMT5:45 2:45 PM MST4:45 PM EST1:45 UAE (+1)22:4516:45 ET3:45 PM CTNaN:� - Simmons is under the weather, but is playing Monday against the Suns.
Analysis: Simmons scored 20 points Monday on 9-of-18 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Phoenix Suns 115-101. Simmons pulled down eight rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 36:13 on the floor. He tacked on six steals.
Dec. 2 8:09 PM PT9:09 PM MT10:09 PM CT11:09 PM ET4:09 GMT12:09 9:09 PM MST11:09 PM EST8:09 UAE05:0923:09 ET10:09 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored five points Saturday on 2-of-6 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Detroit Pistons 108-103. Simmons pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 39:11 of playing time. He added two blocks.
Nov. 30 7:59 AM PT8:59 AM MT9:59 AM CT10:59 AM ET15:59 GMT23:59 8:59 AM MST10:59 AM EST19:59 UAE16:5910:59 ET9:59 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 31 points Wednesday on 8-of-16 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Washington Wizards 118-113. Simmons grabbed 18 rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 40:36 on the floor. He added two blocks and two steals.
Analysis: Simmons' point and rebound totals were career highs, but he missed 12 of 24 free throws in the fourth quarter after being intentionally fouled repeatedly, and Washington nearly rallied from 24 down. Though Simmons finished the night 15 of 29 at the line, dropping him to 55.4 percent for the season, this development might help his fantasy owners because it could pad his scoring average.
Nov. 30 8:10 PM PT9:10 PM MT10:10 PM CT11:10 PM ET4:10 GMT12:10 9:10 PM MST11:10 PM EST8:10 UAE05:1023:10 ET10:10 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 15 points Thursday on 6-of-14 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics 108-97. Simmons grabbed six rebounds and dished out seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -10 in his 39:56 of playing time. He tacked on five steals.
Analysis: It was a tough outing for Simmons and his teammates after playing the night before. The 76ers next play Saturday against the Pistons, and in Detroit on Oct. 23, Simmons had 21 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for his first triple-double.
Nov. 27 6:40 PM PT7:40 PM MT8:40 PM CT9:40 PM ET2:40 GMT10:40 7:40 PM MST9:40 PM EST6:40 UAE (+1)03:4021:40 ET8:40 PM CTNaN:� - Simmons will play Wednesday against the Wizards after being listed as questionable with a right ankle sprain. He managed just 10 points in 35 minutes before exiting in the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to Cleveland with the injury.
Analysis: Simmons, who missed all of last season with a broken right foot, returned after sitting out Saturday's game because of a sore left elbow. He entered Monday's game leading all rookies in scoring (18.5), rebounding (9.1) and assists (7.7).
Nov. 24 11:14 AM PT12:14 PM MT1:14 PM CT2:14 PM ET19:14 GMT3:14 12:14 PM MST2:14 PM EST23:14 UAE20:1414:14 ET1:14 PM CTNaN:� - Simmons will play Monday against LeBron James and the Cavaliers after missing Saturday's game because of a sore left elbow.
Analysis: Simmons hadn't missed a game this season and played 39 minutes Tuesday, but he reportedly has experienced some swelling in the elbow. Being ruled out a day in advance has to be concerning for Sixer fans, not to mention his fantasy owners. Last year's No. 1 overall pick is averaging 18.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 7.7 assists.
Nov. 22 7:20 PM PT8:20 PM MT9:20 PM CT10:20 PM ET3:20 GMT11:20 8:20 PM MST10:20 PM EST7:20 UAE (+1)04:2022:20 ET9:20 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 16 points Wednesday on 8-of-20 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 101-81. Simmons pulled down eight rebounds and dished out nine assists, tallying a plus-minus of +18 in his 39:03 of playing time. He added two blocks and three steals.
Analysis: Simmons entered the game averaging 18.7 points, 9.2 rebounds and 7.6 assists. The only Sixer to average at least 18 points, nine rebounds and 7.5 assists for a full season was the legendary Wilt Chamberlain, who did it in 1966-67 and 1967-68.
Nov. 20 5:53 PM PT6:53 PM MT7:53 PM CT8:53 PM ET1:53 GMT9:53 6:53 PM MST8:53 PM EST5:53 UAE (+1)02:5320:53 ET7:53 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 27 points Monday on 13-of-24 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Utah Jazz 107-86. Simmons pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +6 in his 34:16 on the floor. He tacked on four steals.
Analysis: Simmons notched his ninth double-double and shot over 50 percent for the fourth straight games. He's averaged 22.5 points on 62.1 percent shooting, 9.8 rebounds and 7.0 assists in that four-game span. About the only issue with Simmons' game right now is his 9 for 20 mark from the free throw line in his past five contests.
Nov. 18 8:35 PM PT9:35 PM MT10:35 PM CT11:35 PM ET4:35 GMT12:35 9:35 PM MST11:35 PM EST8:35 UAE05:3523:35 ET10:35 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 23 points Saturday, going 11 of 15 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Golden State Warriors 124-116.
Analysis: Simmons continues to shine, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out a season-best 12 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 37:44 on the floor. His most impressive stat in his last two games is his 22 assists to just two turnovers.
Nov. 16 10:30 PM PT11:30 PM MT12:30 AM CT1:30 AM ET6:30 GMT14:30 11:30 PM MST1:30 AM EST10:30 UAE07:301:30 ET12:30 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 18 points Wednesday on 8-of-13 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 115-109. Simmons grabbed nine rebounds and dished out 10 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +19 in his 39:06 on the floor. He added one block and five steals.
Analysis: The five steals give Simmons 17 in seven games this month and he's now fifth in the league in that category. The 2016 No. 1 overall pick hasn't been too shabby in other areas either, as he's averaging 18.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 7.9 assists over his last nine contests.
Nov. 14 11:11 PM PT12:11 AM MT1:11 AM CT2:11 AM ET7:11 GMT15:11 12:11 AM MST2:11 AM EST11:11 UAE08:112:11 ET1:11 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 22 points Monday, going 9 of 14 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 109-105. Simmons grabbed 12 rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 37:15 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: The four assists were a season low and Simmons turned the ball five times, giving him 33 over his last seven games. That's about the only negative to mention for the early Rookie of the Year favorite, who's backed up an excellent October by averaging 17 points, 9.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists and two steals during the first six games of November.
Nov. 12 10:19 PM PT11:19 PM MT12:19 AM CT1:19 AM ET6:19 GMT14:19 11:19 PM MST1:19 AM EST10:19 UAE07:191:19 ET12:19 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 13 points Saturday, going 6 of 17 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Golden State Warriors 135-114. Simmons pulled down five rebounds and dished out eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -10 in his 28:52 on the floor. He added two steals.
Nov. 10 9:35 PM PT10:35 PM MT11:35 PM CT12:35 AM ET5:35 GMT13:35 10:35 PM MST12:35 AM EST9:35 UAE06:350:35 ET11:35 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 18 points Thursday on 6-of-8 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Sacramento Kings 109-108. Simmons grabbed two rebounds and had six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +4 in his 26:53 on the floor. He added two steals.
Analysis: Simmons didn't play at least 30 minutes for the first time this season and also was in foul trouble for the second straight game. He was far less aggressive in this game, taking a season-low eight shots after he attempted 22 Tuesday at Utah.
Nov. 8 11:11 PM PT12:11 AM MT1:11 AM CT2:11 AM ET7:11 GMT15:11 12:11 AM MST2:11 AM EST11:11 UAE08:112:11 ET1:11 AM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 16 points Tuesday, going 7 of 22 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Utah Jazz 104-97. Simmons grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out six assists, tallying a plus-minus of +2 in his 36:04 on the floor. He added three blocks and three steals.
Analysis: It's already getting to the point where it's news if Simmons doesn't come up with a double-double. The early Rookie of the Year favorite has notched one in three straight games and seven of his first 10 outings as a professional. Add in the 8.8 assists he's averaged over his last eight games and you've got yourself a bona fide fantasy superstar.
Nov. 3 7:43 PM PT8:43 PM MT9:43 PM CT10:43 PM ET2:43 GMT10:43 7:43 PM MST9:43 PM EST6:43 UAE (+1)03:4322:43 ET8:43 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 14 points Friday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Indiana Pacers 121-110. Simmons pulled down 11 rebounds and had 11 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +12 in his 38:32 of playing time. He added three blocks and two steals.
Analysis: Simmons had his second triple-double in a rookie season delayed a year because of injury.
Nov. 1 7:37 PM PT8:37 PM MT9:37 PM CT10:37 PM ET2:37 GMT10:37 7:37 PM MST9:37 PM EST6:37 UAE (+1)03:3722:37 ET8:37 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 19 points Wednesday on 8-of-16 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 119-109. Simmons pulled down 13 rebounds and dished out nine assists, tallying a plus-minus of +12 in his 33:30 on the floor. He added two steals.
Analysis: Simmons has scored in double figures in every game and flirted with his second triple-double. Simmons joined Oscar Robertson as the only players in NBA history with 100 points, 50 rebounds and 40 assists in his first six games.
Oct. 30 7:03 PM PT8:03 PM MT9:03 PM CT10:03 PM ET2:03 GMT10:03 7:03 PM MST9:03 PM EST6:03 UAE (+1)03:0322:03 ET8:03 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 24 points Monday, going 10 of 15 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Houston Rockets 115-107. Simmons pulled down seven rebounds and had nine assists, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 38:34 of playing time.
Analysis: Simmons just continues to impress. He has 47 points on 20-of-30 shooting with 17 assists and 14 rebounds in his last two games. He did have a season-high five turnovers but that's hardly alarming for a rookie who has the ball in his hands so much.
Oct. 28 7:20 PM PT8:20 PM MT9:20 PM CT10:20 PM ET2:20 GMT10:20 7:20 PM MST9:20 PM EST6:20 UAE (+1)04:2022:20 ET9:20 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 23 points Saturday on 10-of-15 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Dallas Mavericks 112-110. Simmons grabbed seven rebounds and dished out eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 33:38 of playing time. He added one block and three steals.
Analysis: Simmons had another excellent all-around performance. He's averaged 19.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 8.8 assists in his last four games, so he's close to averaging a triple-double. Simmons is also shooting 54.2 percent in that span.
Oct. 25 5:57 PM PT6:57 PM MT7:57 PM CT8:57 PM ET0:57 GMT8:57 5:57 PM MST7:57 PM EST4:57 UAE (+1)02:5720:57 ET7:57 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 14 points Wednesday, going 7 of 17 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Houston Rockets 105-104. Simmons pulled down seven rebounds and had nine assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -13 in his 34:04 of playing time. He added one block and three steals.
Analysis: This was another strong all-around performance by Simmons, who again flirted with a triple-double. That will no doubt come soon for Simmons, who is averaging 16.4 points, 10.0 rebounds and 7.4 assists through five games.
Oct. 23 7:35 PM PT8:35 PM MT9:35 PM CT10:35 PM ET2:35 GMT10:35 7:35 PM MST9:35 PM EST6:35 UAE (+1)04:3522:35 ET9:35 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 21 points Monday, going 8 of 11 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Detroit Pistons 97-86. Simmons pulled down 12 rebounds and had 10 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 33:51 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
Analysis: Simmons had double-doubles in his first three games, but Philadelphia lost them all. He was the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft before missing all of last season with a foot injury. He finished two assists shy of a triple-double at Toronto on Saturday night, and his skill and versatility were evident in Detroit.
Oct. 21 7:03 PM PT8:03 PM MT9:03 PM CT10:03 PM ET2:03 GMT10:03 7:03 PM MST9:03 PM EST6:03 UAE (+1)04:0322:03 ET9:03 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 18 points Saturday on 7-of-16 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Toronto Raptors 128-94. Simmons grabbed 10 rebounds and had eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -20 in his 33:23 on the floor.
Analysis: The No. 1 overall pick in 2016 who missed all of last season due to a broken foot, Simmons has recorded a double-double in all three games. He joined Oscar Robertson as the only NBA players to start their careers with at least 10 points and 10 rebounds and five or more assists in their first three games. Simmons is averaging 15.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 6 assists.
Oct. 20 6:48 PM PT7:48 PM MT8:48 PM CT9:48 PM ET1:48 GMT9:48 6:48 PM MST8:48 PM EST5:48 UAE (+1)03:4821:48 ET8:48 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 11 points Friday on 4-of-11 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics 102-92. Simmons pulled down 11 rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 36:54 on the floor. He added one steal.
Analysis: Simmons is filling up the stat sheet as expected, totaling 29 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists in his first two games. He's added three steals and a block.
Oct. 18 6:36 PM PT7:36 PM MT8:36 PM CT9:36 PM ET1:36 GMT9:36 6:36 PM MST8:36 PM EST5:36 UAE (+1)03:3621:36 ET8:36 PM CTNaN:� - Ben Simmons scored 18 points Wednesday, going 7 of 15 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Washington Wizards 120-115. Simmons pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 34:40 of playing time. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: Simmons looked very good in his NBA debut, and did a little of everything. Most impressive may have been his one turnover in 34 minutes. Simmons already looks like a fantasy stud and one that should be putting up a few triple-doubles fairly soon.
Oct. 5 9:07 PM PT10:07 PM MT11:07 PM CT12:07 AM ET4:07 GMT12:07 9:07 PM MST11:07 PM EST8:07 UAE06:070:07 ET11:07 PM CTNaN:� - Simmons finally on the floor with Markelle Fultz alongside in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Analysis: Philadelphia started the last two No. 1 overall picks together in its 111-89 home loss to Memphis. Simmons, who missed all of last season recovering from a broken foot, showed his versatility with six points, nine assists and seven rebounds. He shot only 2 for 8 and Fultz was worse at 2 for 13, finishing with four points in his first game.
