Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons froze a pair of Chicago Bulls defenders with some trickery in the third quarter of Thursday's game at United Center. 

With roughly nine minutes remaining in the period, Simmons dribbled the ball across midcourt as big man Joel Embiid prepared to run into the paint. 

Simmons faked a pass to his left, a move that allowed Embiid to sneak behind Chicago's David Nwaba and Kris Dunn for an uncontested layup. 

Nwaba and Dunn were too trusting of Simmons' process in this instance.
