Simmons' triple-double lifts 76ers to first win

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double in his fourth career game. He was more pleased that his team got its first victory of the season.

Simmons, the top pick in the 2016 draft, piled up 21 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists as the Philadelphia Sixers downed the Detroit Pistons 97-86 on Monday at Little Caesars Arena.

"I'm just glad we won, honestly," said Simmons, who missed all of last season after undergoing foot surgery but has double-doubles in each of his first four games. "That means so much more than stats for me. It's awesome to have a triple-double but at the same time, it's even better to win, especially with these guys and a young team like this."
