Philadelphia's coach wants more deep shots from the Australian.

Point guard Ben Simmons managed a rare feat on Saturday as his Philadelphia 76ers routed the Cleveland Cavaliers 141-94, nailing just the second three-pointer of his professional career.

The Australian scored a career-high 34 points in the game, but it was not enough for Philadelphia coach Brett Brown.

Just a month after Simmons scored his first three, Brown told reporters "I want a three-point shot a game, minimum" from the 23-year-old.

Fellow young gun Luka Doncic showed he was worthy of the hype  as his Dallas Mavericks trounced the New Orleans Pelicans 130-84.

The 2nd-year player tied Michael Jordan for the longest streak – 18 consecutive games – of 20 points, five rebounds and five assists, further elevating talk he should be the league's MVP.

Elsewhere, the Indiana Pacers beat the New York Knicks 104-103, the Houston Rockets went 115-109 over the Phoenix Suns and the Utah Jazz were 126-112 victors against the Memphis Grizzlies.
