The 76ers narrowly avoided disaster on Friday, beating the Hawks in Game 6 to save their season.
And while Game 7 is set to be a hard-fought affair, the play of Ben Simmons may be an even bigger concern for the franchise right now.
Though Philly did walk away with the win, Ben did not have a particularly inspiring performance. Dropping just 6 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists on 33% shooting, it's fair to say that fans expect better, even despite the fact that the star was dealing with foul trouble all night long.
Naturally, Twitter got on his case for it...
The fact is, Ben Simmons just hasn't shown up in this postseason and it could cost his team a chance at the title.
For years, the guy has struggled to shoot from beyond a few feet under the rim, and that liability has only gotten worse over the span of years.
Whether or not the Sixers win Game 7, Ben will have to get back in the lab and develop a jumper At 24-years-old, with four seasons under his belt, it's certainly not too late for him to make a leap.
But, for the Sixers' sake, it better happen sooner rather than later.
