To say that Philadelphia 76ers superstar Ben Simmons struggled in the clutch against the Atlanta Hawks is quite an understatement. The three-time All-Star was virtually non-existent down the stretch for the Sixers as his offensive struggles in the last four games against the Hawks. If you think I’m making this up well then scroll down and see for yourself.

According to StatMuse, the Australian failed to convert a bucket in the Sixers’ last 48 fourth-quarter minutes. In fact, Simmons didn’t even attempt a shot in the fourth quarter of Philly’s last four games. Just wow.

After the series-ending loss, Simmons admitted and owned up to his offensive struggles all series. The 24-year-old basically shied away from the opportunity to help his team get buckets down the stretch. The Process wasn’t working for Ben Simmons.

“Offensively, I wasn’t there this series. There’s a lot of things I need to work on.” claimed Simmons after once again struggling on Sunday’s Game 7 loss (via NBA Central).

Simmons even opted out of a wide-open lay-up in a crucial part of the game even if he was wide-open for an easy bucket. That play pretty much summed up Simmons’ series.

Unfortunately, Simmons will be entering another drama-filled offseason as the Philly front office will have to look into possible tweaks in their roster coming into the 2021-2022 NBA Season. With Simmons struggling this much, don’t be surprised if his name comes up more than once in trade rumors as his tandem with Joel Embiid continues to put up duds.

Is this the end of the line for Ben and the Sixers?
