Ben Simmons put up just one point in Philadelphia’s 108-103 loss to the Celtics on Thursday night.Β It was the first time he failed to make a field goal in his 88-game NBA career.

Afterwards, the rook apparently received an encouraging call from Hall of Famer Allen Iverson, via ESPN‘s Ian Begley:

“He just said play the game I know how to play,” Simmons said on Friday. “And that’s just second nature to me. … He gave me some words of encouragement.”

Boston leads Philly 2-0 in the series. Game 3 is set for Saturday at 5pm ET.

How many is Simmons dropping?
