He still managed to put up 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists before fouling out with 7 seconds remaining.
Meanwhile, Simmons' rival for National Basketball Association rookie of the year honours Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points and set an National Basketball Association rookie record for 3-pointers, as his Utah Jazz crushed a depleted Gold State Warriors 119-79. This year's team played hard, had some really cool moments and has some very young and talented players - Taurean Prince, John Collins, Dennis Schroder - but this isn't the same product by far and that's a shame.
Chris Paul scored 22 points, James Harden had 21 points and 10 assists, and Houston kept steamrolling toward the playoffs by beating the Los Angeles Lakers with its 31st victory in 34 games. Additionally, the Bucks, who rank fifth in free throw attempt (FTA) rate (0.221), will face off against the 76ers, who rank 28th in opponents' FTA rate (0.219).
Obviously Simmons isn't going to sit there and say he doesn't deserve the award and it has to go to Mitchell, but this is still a rather firm statement by the Sixers' rookie. The Philadelphia 76ers have won nine straight home games. Milwaukee is below average on the boards as they are 30 with 39.8 rebounds per game.
The Bucks meet the 76ers with a two-game winning streak and wins in three of four, with a surprising loss to Brooklyn on Thursday. Sadly, it was successful and Simmons was only 4 assists and 4 turnovers shy of a points, rebounds, assists and turnovers quadruple-double.
The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 36.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line.
Odell Beckham Jr. with Giants on first day of offseason program
In fact, the Giants reportedly were actively shopping OBJ and apparently offered him up to an unidentified NFC team. However, he was limited to only four games past year , hauling in 25 receptions for 302 yards and three scores.
Dario Saric, who left a game early in Atlanta Monday with a chipped tooth and lacerated lip, recovered quickly to provide 24 points and a plus-minus of 27, helping to limit Giannis Antetokounmpo to 10 points. Most recently, Miami prevailed, 108-99, March 9.
So it appeared Wednesday, when they received 76 points from their bench, including 25 from Justin Anderson and a triple-double from Markelle Fultz.
The 76ers average 27.0 assists per game, which ranks second in the league.
Philadelphia is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings with Milwaukee. His status for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee is uncertain. He came back for the final eight games of the season.
Baynes had a career-best 26 points and 14 rebounds in leading the Celtics to a 110-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Never. The man answered all of the questions he faced coming home to Atlanta before last season: Can he still play?
Ben Simmons, who is averaging almost a triple-double since the beginning of March, had 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists Tuesday, and said he knows the importance of the big matchup.
