In a game that is so far notable for the number of three pointers hit and amount of contact Joel Embiid has made with the floor, Ben Simmons did this:

Not only did he draw a collapsing Nerlens Noel and head into him, but he wrapped his body around Nerlens and threw a no-look bounce pass to an open Embiid for a corner three. When you watch it again, you see he also shaded Embiid a bit further into the corner, where he probably should have been anyway. Yeah, on a pass this superhuman, I’ll give him credit for that.
That man is damn near 6’11”.
