Ben Simmons still fired on Philadelphia 76ers fans despite losing to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. Simmons played his first game in Philadelphia since being traded last season. The Nets were dominated by a shorthanded Sixers team, missing their top three players.

The Nets star endured hostility all night every time he got the basketball. There were even “F**k Ben Simmons” chants throughout the game. In a postgame interview, Simmons was asked about being booed by the Philadelphia crowd.

“I thought it was going to be stronger,” Simmons said with a smirk on his face.

Simmons had a good game for the Nets despite losing 115-106 to his former team. The Aussie finished the game with 11 points, seven rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and three blocks. He shot 4 for 7 and 3 for 6 from the free throw line.

Simmons was pleased with his performance but would have preferred the Nets to win. The Sixers were without Joel Embiid, James Harden and Tyrese Maxey, but Tobias Harris and De’Anthony Melton carried Philly to victory.

“I feel like I’m in a good place,” Simmons said. “I’m happy, I’m doing what I love. So to be there and have that experience was amazing. Obviously it wasn’t the result we wanted. It’s frustrating to lose a game like that, but I think it’s a good step forward.”

During the third quarter, Simmons missed two free throws much to the delight of the crowd. Not only did fans celebrate their former player’s bricks, but they also gave away free Chick-fil-A nuggets to everyone in attendance.

According to Sports Illustrated, the Sixers and Chick-fil-A have a promotional partnership called “Bricken for Chicken.” When an opposing player misses two consecutive free throws, fans receive five free chicken nuggets. If a second player misses consecutive foul shots, the free chicken nuggets go up to eight pieces.

Ben Simmons had a slow start to the season, averaging a triple single for the Brooklyn Nets. He also missed a handful of games with a minor knee injury, and there have been reports of frustration in the Nets organization.

However, the former No. 1 pick has come alive in his last three games. He’s averaging 16.0 points, 9.3 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks, shooting 80.8% from the field but just 54.5% from the charity strip. .

Simmons’ best game came against the Memphis Grizzlies. He had 22 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the Nets victory. The team is finally winning games, with Kevin Durant among the best players in the league and Kyrie Irving back from suspension.
