The Sixers Need To Grow Up In Order To Win Game 3

With the process still in motion, the Sixers learned a hard lesson tonight against the Celtics. Arguably a mismatch on paper in favor of Philadelphia, turned into a close victory for Boston. Ben Simmons was active on the defensive end in addition to notching seven assists, but was only able to muster a single free-throw in the scoring column. A Sixers team that has been lauded as a resourceful fountain of youth looked dazed and confused as Al Horford rumbled to the  rim unabated to seal the game. 

Turnovers Were A Major Issue

Players can struggle, but it was far from the norm to see Ben Simmons record more turnovers than points. With 5 turnovers from Simmons the rookie proved incapable of protecting the ball in game two. A correctable set of mistakes, Brett Brown preached fundamentals as well as noting the abundance of turnovers from Simmons as Brown looked to prepare his team to bring a second round playoff victory to Philadelphia.
