He followed that up with a thunderous alley-oop finish on a fast break and his efforts only required a mere nine minutes of playing time in the second half.
Simmons seemed determined to dominate as a scorer. With the range-challenged Australian potting his second-ever shot from beyond the arc against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, his head coach issued a public challenge to the 23-year-old All-Star. I'm fine with everything that's open, but I'm interested in the three-point shot.
Coach Brett Brown is just not stunned to see the threes beginning to drop for Simmons and now desires to see him taking the shot on a extra constant foundation. That is the world that interests me the most, those two things. Simmons remains 2-for-21 in his career from deep, but he's making progress.
"And when you say, 'OK, what's the (reasonable) number (of 3-point shots)?' I immediately throw out eight", said Brown.
The Sixers just want opponents to have to acknowledge the possibility that leaving Simmons completely deserted at the perimeter could result in a catch-and-shoot 3-pointer.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Clippers - 12/6/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction
The LA Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks have a combined record of 35-9 to start the season and both are championship contenders. The tactic makes sense for multiple reasons, but perhaps none more so than simply keeping Leonard out of foul trouble.
The Philadelphia 76ers romped their way to an easy 141-94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night despite being down two starters to fully bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Washington Wizards on Thursday. "For whatever reason, I'm not sure, but that's a number I think is attainable".
"The mentality that he has the place he is turning corners and taking that lengthy step, that collect step, and bringing his shoulders to the rim and attempting to dunk or end tight, will equal increased effectivity, or getting fouled".
It's easy to see why Brown would want Simmons to have a more aggressive stance on the attack.
"It is complete, first, in his wheelhouse". And, secondly, he will probably be liberated. "And I think, in so many ways, so will ours". They don't have much time to settle in with the victory, as they host the defending champion Toronto Raptors tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. AEDT.
