The 76ers guard had a rough Game 1 against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday in Philadelphia's 111-102 loss. Simmons had just nine points and was an abysmal 1-for-5 from the charity stripe.
Dudley wasn't a factor in the scoring column, with just four points, but he shared the team lead with four assists, nabbed a steal and frustrated Philadelphia by repeatedly being in the right place at the right time at the defensive end.
He became a key target of the fans' vitriol in the third quarter, when he missed a free throw and had a large chorus of boos rain down on him from the rafters. Then, as it always does, Twitter jumped all over the opportunity to take shots at Simmons. If you can't play, they're going to give you the s- and they talk s-, that is what it is. "If you are a Sixers fan and going to boo, stay on that side", Simmons said.
