It finally happened.

In his 136th career NBA game, Ben Simmons pulled up from 24-feet and shot a 3-point shot.

With 11:07 left in the third quarter, with the Sixers leading the Lakers 78-67, Simmons calmly stepped into the 3-point shot.

While it was off-the-mark, it looked good when he let it fly, and maybe will give him the confidence to let a few more fly this season.

Simmons has attempted 13 other 3-point shots, but none have really been anything other then heaves at the end of a quarter.
