This has been a postseason to forget for Ben Simmons. Though he’s extremely versatile, his inability to stretch the floor has been a major issue for the Philadelphia 76ers. In 11 games this postseason, Simmons averaging 12.5 points, 8.5 assists and 7.9 rebounds per game. Those aren’t abysmal numbers by any means, but the fact that he’s shooting 33.8 percent from the free throw line is alarming.

Joel Embiid felt that the officiating in the Philadelphia 76ers’ Game 6 win favored Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks, and Sixers head coach Doc Rivers thinks he’s right. To recall, following their win to tie the series at 3-3, the Sixers center ripped the foul calls during the game.
