Ben Simmons has been phenomenal over the past few games, averaging 17.5 points, 7.5 assists, and 9.5 rebounds a game. With his combination of height, speed and athleticism, Simmons has proven to be a monumental challenge to guard. After all, how can you guard a 6′ 10” point guard?
The answer is… you can’t. Simmons just blows by Matthews and makes the whole Dallas defense look foolish.
Simmons’ command over the offense and his ability to control the game is impressive. He even recorded a triple-double in his fourth career game, making him the fastest person to do this since 1967. It is hard to believe that Simmons is only a rookie. Imagine how good he’ll be once he develops his jump shot. To quote Michael Jordan, “The ceiling is the roof.”
