Ben Simmons makes NBA History, The Sixers' Stunning Winning Constitution

Ben Simmons makes NBA History, The Sixers' Stunning Winning Constitution

Derrick Rose is having his best season since leaving the Chicago Bulls as he is averaging 18.3 points and 5.9 assists per game on over 50 percent shooting, and it seems as though the rest of the National Basketball Association has taken notice.

Announced as the Eastern Conference player of the week during Monday's game, the Australian got a good start on winning the next week's award, too.

His head coach called him "ridiculously dominant" as he recorded his fourth triple-double of the season.

Simmons put up 34 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, five steals, and two blocks - the first player to ever post it, according to Basketball Reference - as the 76ers rallied to defeat the Brooklyn Nets 117-111. He was just multi-skilled, used all over the place in multiple positions.

Al Horford added 19 points for the 76ers, who won their fourth consecutive game.

It's been a wild year for Simmons as his many critics have been frustrated with his refusal to take more field shots, particularly three-pointers. He followed up by feeding Matisse Thybulle for a dunk, and the Sixers wouldn't trail again.

Eastern Conference leaders Milwaukee improved their league-leading record to 39-6 with a 111-98 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

Philadelphia return to action on Wednesday in a road game against the Toronto Raptors. While they could use an upgrade in nearly every position on the bench, perhaps the biggest need they will need to look into would be in the point guard department.

For Kyrie Irving, that's not the case in his first season with the Brooklyn Nets. Kuzma has been averaging 13.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, and one assist per game as the third option for offense behind LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

But the Thunder, aided by 28 points from Chris Paul and 25 from Danilo Gallinari, managed a deficit of 16 points in the fourth quarter to grab the win.
