Stephen A.Smith was not thrilled with Ben Simmons’ performance in Game 4 of the series vs. Washington. The ESPN analyst claimed the Sixers All-Star’s inability to shoot will cost the 76ers a championship.

Lately, Simmons made headlines with his performance from the free-throw line as the Sixers’ superstar shot a horrific 25 percent from the charity stripe in four playoff games this year.

However, Simmons is remaining a positive presence for hie team on the floor. The Louisiana State product averages 13.8 points, 10.3 rebounds and 8.8 assists prior to Game 5 vs. Washington shooting 63 percent from the field.

The 76ers are on a plus-25 with him on the floor as he impacts the game greatly with his defense as the Sixers are allowing 106.7 points per 100 possessions in the first four playoff games.
