Ben Simmons Had 1 Point Night Because He Was Overthinking - Sports Gossip
I'm over thinking he just lost the Rookie of the Year Award
Sixer

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons said he was "overthinking" on the court when he scored only one point in 31 minutes in a Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics on Thursday night.

The Rookie of the Year race has been one of the biggest stories of the 2017-18 NBA season, and it will all be decided on June 25th. This could be a big one in determining who will win the award. 

"I think it was mainly what I did to myself," Simmons said after failing to score a field goal for the first time in his 87-game career. "Mentally, I was thinking too much, overthinking the plays. Wasn't just out there, flowing, playing the way that I play, which is free.

Simmons said his struggles were "self-inflicted."

"Mental, thinking too much," the Rookie of the Year candidate said after setting a career low for points. "I think the way the Heat played [against Simmons in the first round], it was nothing compared to the Celtics. Physically, the Heat were on another level."

Brown defended his decision to ride with Simmons to reporters after the game:

The Philadelphia Sixers now face an 0-2 hole, with the next two games in Philadelphia. Simmons better do some soul searching, because putting up one point in a playoff game is not acceptable.
