It’s crazy to think, but Ben Simmons has never hit a 3-pointer in his whole NBA career. The Philadelphia 76ers star was 0-19 before last night’s game against the Guangzhou Long-Lions and he did the unthinkable.
He hit a shot from downtown with time winding right before halftime.
In the offseason, he said if there was a shot and he was open, he was going to take it. That he did against soft defense from the Long-Lions.
Simmons finished the preseason game with 21 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists and Philly is looking like a contender in the Eastern Conference. Especially if Ben adds this new shot to the arsenal. It’ll just be one more weapon.
