He can’t shoot a 3, but it’s not a problem for Simmons just yet.
Ben Simmons doesn’t need to shoot jumpers to be effective. And when the Philadelphia 76ers played the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, Simmons showed exactly how he can put points on the board:
Simmons inside game ran through the Clippers’ interior. They had no answer for his slashing game and poor Lou Williams fell prey to Simmons’s wrath:

Then in the fourth quarter, he caught an alley-oop from Justin Anderson and reverse finished it:

The dunk is a magical weapon and Simmons uses it well.
