Will Smith Officially Endorses Ben Simmons In New Sixers Video

Will Smith Officially Endorses Ben Simmons In New Sixers Video

Philly had a few days off between the end of the last series and this week's conference semifinal series (which starts today) with the Celtics.

There were two really loud chants directed at Simmons during Game 1 when the Sixers and Celtics played at TD Garden, with Boston fans chanting "not a rookie" at Simmons while he shot free throws and "he's a rookie" while Tatum shot free throws.

Fellow rookie Mitchell previously said Simmons should be ineligible for the Rookie of the Year award because this is actually his second season in the National Basketball Association.

Donovan Mitchell was quick on the Twitter trigger Monday, expressing his pleasure when Celtics fans rained down taunts on Ben Simmons.

Mitchell, meanwhile, points out that Simmons was drafted to play past year when an injury ended his season before it started, and is technically not a rookie.

The 76ers were led by Joel Embiid with 31 points and 13 rebounds. It's an odd approach and seems a tacit admission that he acknowledges that Simmons is actually the better player, but whatever. "It was kind of amusing", Mitchell said.

The trio of Terry Rozier, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford combined for 83 points to lead the Celtics on Monday.

Tatum posted career-highs in points (28), free throws made (11), and free throws attempted (12).

"The Sixers need their 6'10" point guard to limit his mistakes in Thursday's Game 2 in Boston if they want to level the series before returning home to the Wells Fargo Center, where he'll see a more friendly crowd starting Saturday.
