Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons had a message for fans who booed the Sixers following their loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.

Simmons said: "If you're going to boo, stay on that side."

The 22-year-old Simmons struggled in the 111-102 home loss, as he finished with nine points, seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks. Simmons went just 4-of-9 from the field and 1-of-5 from the free-throw line.

With the Sixers trailing in the third quarter, fans began to boo Simmons because of his continued issues at the charity stripe.
