Sim­mons chips in

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - SPORT -

BEN Sim­mons came up just short of adding an­other triple dou­ble in his NBA rookie sea­son in the Philadel­phia 76ers’ com­fort­able win over the New Or­leans Pel­i­cans yes­ter­day.

The Aus­tralian had a poor shoot­ing night from the field but was per­fect from the freethrow line in the 100-82 vic­tory – he sat out the en­tire fourth quar­ter.

His 10 points, nine re­bounds and eight as­sists was su­per­seded by his All-Star cen­tre team­mate Joel Em­biid, who had 24 points and 16 re­bounds.

Philadel­phia (27-25) sit eighth in the east.
