The Philadelphia Sixers absolutely destroy the Cleveland Cavaliers and it wasn't even close for one second. Ben Simmons was magnificient as he dropped 34 points on 14 shots. He hit a couple jump shots including a three-pointer. He went to the free throw line 12 times and knocked down nine. It was a fantastic game by him. I am not trying to be negative, but I have to factor in the opponent. He needs to do this against better teams! Brett Brown put Mike Scott in the starting lineup so he can find his shot again and that's exactly what he did. He recorded 21 points. Matisse Thybulle rolled his ankle and did not return to the game. The starters hit the bench early as the rotation players filled in for a good portion of the second half. Joel Embiid did not play and he is ready to go against Toronto on Sunday.
