Simmons made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and Trey Burke and Mike Scott each chipped in 21 points for the 76ers, who improved to 11-0 at home after posting their ninth win in 11 games.
Turkish global Furkan Korkmaz scored 5 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished out 3 assists, while Cedi Osman played with 2 points and 1 assist, both playing 19 minutes.
Coach Brett Brown was happy with what he saw and then he issued a proclamation for him.
While Simmons downplayed his need to develop a three-point shot before the season, it's clear he worked on it this offseason. "The pull-up 2's, I'm fine with, whatever, he's open, but I'm interested in the 3-point shot".More news: 'Benson,' 'Star Trek' actor René Auberjonois has died
Much was done about how it lasted against the Knicks until last month for SImmons to sink its first National Basketball Association three-point shot, while the Wells Fargo Center erupted as it did.
"The drama of it's overblown", Brown mentioned. "The reality [is] that he can shoot and it will eventually have to come into play in a distinct way from an attempted point of view, that is no exaggeration. And I think, in many ways, so will ours".
Though Simmons finally broke the seal, he's still only attempted four 3-pointers during the 2019-20 season, and never more than one in a single outing. Brett Brown is encouraging the growth of this dimension of his game by encouraging him to take more triples to acclimate himself.
"I feel more comfortable", Simmons said. It's attacking and getting to the free throw line, too. That's another area in his game that Brown would like to see grow.More news: Papa John's Pizza with Hot Dogs!
"The mentality that he has the place he is turning corners and taking that lengthy step, that collect step, and bringing his shoulders to the rim and attempting to dunk or end tight, will equal increased effectivity, or getting fouled".
"That's the world that interests me the most".
"This is what I want and you can pass this along to his agent, his family, his friends and to him", said Brown. "That's a number that I think is attainable".More news: Woman allegedly stung by Scorpion "several times" on United Airlines flight
