Philadelphia 76ers youngster Ben Simmons is not yet known for his shooting. In no way does this mean Simmons struggles making highlight-reel plays.


The Toronto Raptors found this out first-hand Wednesday night against Simmons and the Sixers. Just check out this amazing behind-the-back pass from Simmons to new teammate Jimmy Butler.

It’s easy for Jimmy to get buckets when Simmons is delivering dimes like this. My word.

Another look at the pass shows just how brilliant it was.

The lay in from Butler put Philadelphia up 18-12 in the first quarter.

What a thing of beauty.
