This Ben Simmons stat is alarming to Nets fans


For all of the flowers Ben Simmons has received for his newfound confidence and explosiveness, there's one department where Nets fans aren't exactly thrilled with their point guard. 

Turnovers have been an issue for Simmons in the preseason. While he dished out 28 assists in parts of four games, he also committed a whopping 15 turnovers, including eight against his old club, Philadelphia. 

Simmons has regained a great deal of his "attack dog" mentality, but there have been more than a few occasions where he's committed careless mistakes. 

Part of the learning curve is acclimating with many new teammates, but Simmons and center Nic Claxton have a net negative -17 when on the court together. 

While physically and mentally Simmons is looking closer to his pre-injury All-Star form than ever, he'll need to familiarize himself with the Nets system and his supporting cast to play a much more efficient and mistake free style of ball in the regular season.
