Donovan Mitchell unleashes savage tweet after weird diss from Ben Simmons

Sixers' Ben Simmons is already among best in NBA at cutting to basket

One could easily assume that it was in reaction to what Simmons said, which included him responding "None" when asked what rookies have caught his attention.

"Who would I pick? Me, 100 percent", Simmons said to ESPN.

No matter who you think ultimately deserves the honor, it's hard to deny that both players are having incredible seasons clearly deserving of recognition. Therefore, taking these moves into account, and the bench units the Sixers had used through the early party of the season, here's an overlook at the numbers of the second unit prior to the streak, and how they appear now. Simmons is averaging 16.1 points, 8.1 rebounds and 8.2 assists per game and has played a crucial role in helping the 76ers to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Simmons told ESPN he doesn't subscribe to the notion that he isn't a rookie because he spent the season rehabbing back from a broken foot.

But Simmons is far from the only talent on the 76ers: he joined a team with Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and JJ Reddick.

Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers, pictured at the Wells Fargo Center on October 20, 2017 in Philadelphia, is in a two-player race for the 2018 NBA Rookie of the Year award with Donovan Mitchell. Philadelphia has confidence and knows how to beat every team they'll face this spring. For right now he is just sticking with his prediction that they will at least make the Eastern Conference Finals. For Simmons to ignore Mitchell looks like an intentional slight.

Calls mounting for Trump to target Assad in missile strike against Syria

After averaging the fourth fastest pace in the league over the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season at 102.04, the Simmons lead Sixers have vaulted up the ranks to number one overall over the last 14 games, now racing at a scorching 105.11. The moneyline for the Atlanta Hawks is +385, compared to -520 for the Philadelphia 76ers and 86.4% have picked the Philadelphia 76ers to win the game.

In an incredibly tight playoff race, Utah's recent winning streak could end up being the difference between them missing the postseason and earning home-court advantage in the first round.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been on an absolute roll as of late and it's coming at the best possible time. Mitchell replaced the All-Star forward as the team's top scorer, putting them in a position to finish the year with an even better seed.

"It's a great feeling to have that", Mitchell said.

The second-year player has improved his numbers from his rookie year in nearly every category. Mitchell leads all the first-year players in scoring, but that's his only advantage. Simmons picked up his 10th assist when he found Richaun Holmes for a dunk with 5 minutes, 5 seconds remaining in the quarter.
