What a freaking team effort. JJ stayed hot. Jimmy played angry. Tobias Harris 6-6 from three. SIX FOR SIX!!! Greg Monroe, although an absolutely putrid -9 while looking like he’d be abused in the paint by an insurance salesman in a YMCA pick up game, even pulled down 12 rebounds. Good for him. But the real story here was the leadership and dominance of Big Ben Simmons. A career high 31-points while being aggressively aggressive the entire game. GETCHA BENNY SHIRTS HERE:
There were tough times, for sure. The Sixers were up 16 with 1:17 left in the 3rd…and ended the quarter up 7. But to win by 16 on the road in a pivotal game without their best player says all that needs to be said. The Sixers are gonna be tough to beat putting up 145 and 131 in playoff games. Real tough.
