Two games into the season, and Ben Simmons already has a triple-double. Watch him record his 10th assist to give him the coveted feat as he wraps the ball around his back before dishing it over to Robert Covington for this triple.
The score gave the Sixers a commanding 95-70 lead over the Bulls, one with which Philadelphia will in all likelihood hold on and take the game.
With the pass and score, Simmons notched a line of 13 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds for the game (still not over).
However, the fourth quarter is still to be played, so expect the numbers to go up a bit.
It probably won't be in 2018-19, but at some point in his career, Ben Simmons is going to average a triple-double for a season.— Chris Walder (@WalderSports) October 19, 2018
Russell Westbrook reminded us for two-straight seasons now that it's still possible to average a triple-double for an entire season. It seems to be only a matter of time before Simmons is able to achieve the feat with the way he has started off this season.
Last season's Rookie of the Year is for real, so expect the triple-doubles to keep on coming.
