After more than two seasons and in his 172nd NBA game, Ben Simmons made a 3-pointer. “It feels good to put work in in the summer and it pays off,” Simmons said after the 109-104 win over the New York Knicks. The moment fans here have been waiting for came with 8:20 to go in the first quarter, when Simmons caught a swing pass from forward Furkan Korkmaz in the corner, squared up and knocked down the shot. He then turned and calmly ran back downcourt, while the fans went wild.
