76ers' Ben Simmons On NBA Debut: "Felt Like I Was Playing 2K"

76ers' Ben Simmons On NBA Debut:

However, Simmons showed why he is so highly rated with 18 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in Philadelphia's season opener. It would have been better if we got the win, but it's the first game.

The Wizards defeated the 76ers 120-115. "I could have done it a few more times, maybe we would have won, but we're gonna get there. We have many more to go".

"It felt like I was playing 2K, honestly", Simmons said.

Fellow rookie Markelle Fultz came off the bench to add 10 points and three rebounds, while Joel Embiid led the way with 18 points and 13 rebounds. For perspective, he shot 65 percent on free throws in college - not a good number for a guard, but certainly more respectable than what he's done with the Sixers. "He's finding the open guys in different transition situations".

Finally, Alicia pops out and she and Kelly have a little lovefest before they vow to "kick these boys' a****". With Keys' return , fans are wondering if No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani will also come back to the show.

The 21-year-old from Melbourne was assisted by 76ers forward Robert Covington's 29 points while the Wizards were led by 28 points from John Wall and Bradley Beal's 25 points.

While the Sixers stayed in the game down to the wire, ultimately the Wizards' experience proved the difference as they forced multiple turnovers from the young Sixers down the stretch. But watching the team last night in Washington, the feeling couldn't have been more different than even a year ago, when they almost scraped together an opening-night win against an undermanned OKC team.

"Still gotta work on a lot of things, but as a team we're getting there".
