Ben Simmons is starting to take more jump shots lately and his improvement in that area has been noticeable with shots like the one he had yesterday afternoon.
During the Philadelphia 76ers’matinee against the New York Knicks on Sunday, a fan sitting courtside captured the clip of Simmons making the pretty turnaround jumper from the post.
The shot looked fluid and his execution on the move to get open was even better. He backed down Lance Thomas into the post, and once he got enough space, Simmons turned and flicked the ball toward the hoop with ease.
His increasing ability to shoot jumpers in the post is something he can build upon as he grows offensively.
Over the past three outings, Simmons has shown the full spectrum of his game as well. He’s averaging 19.3 points per game, 14.0 rebounds and 10.6 assists over the recent stretch.
