The Sixers have a new look…and another three-point shooter?
Everyone in the building was shocked when Ben Simmons pulled up from beyond the arc in Sunday’s game against the Lakers. Everyone except, apparently, teammate JJ Redick.
When asked after the game if he was surprised by Simmons’ three-point attempt, Redick said he wasn’t.
“Are you sure?” Joel Embiid quipped.
The Philadelphia point guard had attempted only two three-pointers this season before Sunday (both of them were heaves at the buzzer), and 13 in his NBA career. He has made none of them, and didn’t connect on this one either.
The Sixers shellacked the Lakers, putting up 143 points.
