Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers will face the Hawks in a decisive Game 7, which will determine which team will advance to the ECF between Philadelphia and Atlanta.
Shaquille O’Neal called out Simmons to show up in Game 7 and get it done for the Philadelphia 76ers, who are seeking their first Conference Final appearance in 20 years.
“Hey Ben, you went to LSU – man up. Man up, stop messing around. Come on now. You know better than that,” the Hall of Famer and LSU alumni said on Simmons’ struggles.
Simmons has been struggling offensively in the series vs. Atlanta. He has been sent to the free throw line 71 times in his 11 games thus far, and he’s missed 47 of those attempts.
He averages a career-low 12.5 points, 8.5 assists and 7.9 rebounds through 11 games in the 2020-21 NBA playoffs shooting a horrendous 33.8 percent from the free throw line.
