Jonathan Simmons goes nutso

Simmons. Jonathan, that is. 
Jonathan Simmons, a second year pro for the San Antonio Spurs, had one of the better performances Tuesday that we have seen in the history NBA Summer League play. Simmons scored 35 points and added seven rebounds, and five assists in the Spurs 95-91 victory over the summer version of the Philadelphia 76'ers. Simmons shot 13 of 18 from the floor and made one of his two three-point attempts. At the foul line, he connected on all but one of his nine attempts. 

The rest of the Hoop Obsession / BasslineSpin All-NBA Summer League team for July 5th, 2016...

Christian Wood - Philadelphia. 19 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3-pt., 7-11 FT), 7 rebounds, in 20 minutes. Wood was brilliant in his first game as well. Tuesday he showed an ability to play both inside and outside. 

Chasson Randle - New York. 24 points (8-15 FG, 6-9 3-pt., 2-2 FT), 5 rebs., 5 assists, 6 steals in 34 minutes. ...Randle came off the Knicks bench and led them to their first win in three Summer League games. New York beat the Los Angeles Clippers 92-84 in overtime. 

Briante Weber - Miami. 9 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3-pt., 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 6 steals in 30 mins. ...The Heat remained unbeaten (3-0) with a 84-68 win over the Orlando Blue team. 

Josh Richardson - Miami. 22 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3-pt., 7-8 FT), 6 assists in 28 minutes. 

Kyle Anderson - San Antonio. 23 points (10-17 FG, 3-6 3-pt., 0-3 FT), 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, 3 blocked shots in 30 mins. ...Anderson continues to astound with his ability to "process" plays faster than others. He plays in slow-motion but somehow beats opponents regularly. His length and ability to dig down, as well as block shots, and defensive rebound make him stand out. 

Bryn Forbes - San Antonio. 23 points (8-10 FG, 4-5 3-pt., 3-3 FT) in 28 minutes. If Forbes gets a clean look, it's going in. 

Glenn Robinson III - Indiana. 20 points (8-13 FG, 1-4 3-pt., 3-5 FT), 7 rebounds in 27 minutes. ...Robinson and the Pacers fell to 1-2 with a 80-76 loss to Detroit. 

Georges Niang - Indiana. 14 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3-pt., 4-4 FT), 6 rebounds, 3 assists in 24 mins. 

Rakeem Christmas - Indiana. 10 points (5-10 FG), 7 rebounds, 3 blocked shots in 22 minutes. 

Tibor Pleiss - Utah. 7 points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3-pt., 2-2 FT), 4 rebounds in 16 mins. The Jazz lost to Boston 89-82. 

Diamond Stone - Clippers. 20 points (10-15 FG), 7 rebounds in 31 minutes. 

Notes: Four players that played at least 16 minutes had a per-minute efficiency rating at either zero or minus (that is a REALLY bad game): T.J. Price, DyShawn Pierre, Alex Caruso, and Alex Kirk.
