Ben Simmons turned the page with a 30th career triple-double

The circus around James Harden is now over, and potential currencies like Ben Simmons can resume a normal life. For the Australian, that means finishing a triple-double game, which he did last night against Miami with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists against Miami. This is his second of the season, his 30th in his career. One way to turn the page and get back to work.

“It’s a business, these are things that happen. The only thing I can control, you know, is the way I approach training, games, my day to day routine. I just try to be professional and do my best to help my team to win ”, he replied.

The Sixers were among the last contenders to get James Harden back, and Ben Simmons’ name featured as the main bargaining chip (along with Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey and early rounds of Draft).

Ben Simmons did not feel the need to go talk to Daryl Morey to try to disentangle the true from the false among the rumors which circulated, rather taking the opportunity to reiterate his attachment to the Pennsylvania franchise.

“I come here and work every day. So my job is to progress to help my team win. Everything else I can’t control. I can control my state of mind in training, on the floor and it went really well tonight. I am blessed I can play the game I love at the highest level in the world. There are much worse things going on in the world, so I’m kinda thankful. If you had told me that I was never going to play again, that would have been another story ”.

As for what he can control, namely the field, Ben Simmons did not seem disturbed and even received congratulations from his coach, Doc Rivers, especially for his defense, and his three interceptions.

“I loved the way he played, in control, without forcing anything, to take spaces when they came up… He was a presence for us on the floor and not only in attack but also in defense. It takes us to another level when he plays like that ”, said the coach.
