Simmons' 2am shooting session between NBA games


//

A 2am training in session in the dark after a first game loss helped set Ben Simmons up for a dominant display as he racked up a triple double in Philadelphia’s NBA match up against Chicago.

Simmons reacted to the season-opening loss to the Celtics by getting off the flight from Boston and heading into the 76ers’ training facility for the 2am Wednesday morning workout.

“I want to be the best. Simple as that,” Simmons told reporters ahead of game two of the season.

“We had to work on things and fix things up,” Simmons said. “We have to pay attention to detail, lock in, focus and be disciplined.”

Philadelphia began the season with high expectations and although Simmons was the best 76ers player by far, it wasn’t the start he wanted against the Celtics.

The Sixers showed many of the same weaknesses — primarily a lack of perimeter shooting — as they did in last season’s playoff loss to the Celtics. Simmons has been lauded for most aspects of his game, but his long range shooting continues to detract from his game.

“We’re just trying to find a little bit of rhythm — more than we did in Boston — kind of all over the place,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said before the Bulls match up.

Pundits believe Simmons could become just the third player in NBA history to achieve a triple-double average – double figures in points, rebounds and assists – this season, and he grabbed his first of the season in the third quarter against the Bulls.
