Ben Simmons scored 21 points to lead seven Philadelphia 76ers players in double figures in a 113-92 rout of the visiting Atlanta Hawks Monday night.

Simmons, who registered his first 20-plus point effort of the season, also had 12 rebounds and nine assists. It was the 21st time in Simmons' young career that he has scored at least 20 points.

Markelle Fultz scored a career-high 16 points while Mike Muscala and JJ Redick added 14 apiece for the Sixers, who won their second straight. Landry Shamet also scored 13 points and Robert Covington had 11. Joel Embiid had a relatively quiet game with 10 points, six rebounds and six assists.

The Sixers defeated Atlanta for the fifth consecutive time.

Kent Bazemore led the Hawks with 18 points while Trae Young, Omari Spellman and Dewayne Dedmon added 11 each.

The Hawks shot just 8 of 37 from 3-point range as they dropped their second in a row

The game was tied at 47 at halftime with Dario Saric missing all seven of his shots.

Bazemore had 10 points for the Hawks and was the only player on either team to reach double figures by the half.

The Sixers began to pull away midway through the third with a 15-4 run to take a 67-55 advantage. Simmons then followed with a layup for a 69-55 lead with 4:33 left in the third. Simmons scored 15 of his 21 points through that stage in the third.

Philadelphia outscored the Hawks 31-13 in the third to go ahead 78-60.

Atlanta was just 5 of 25 from beyond the arc through the third.

After Dedmon knocked down a 3-pointer, Muscala came right back for the Sixers with a baseline trey for an 88-69 lead with 8:54 remaining. The lead soon swelled to 94-72 when Shamet hit a 3-pointer.

Simmons sat out the final six-plus minutes with the game well in hand for the Sixers.

The Hawks continued to struggle with their shooting the rest of the way and ultimately were blown out.
