Ben Simmons‘ future with the Philadelphia 76ers likely rests on their mutual success in Game 7. If Simmons had performed to the level his résumé might suggest — three straight All-Star selections, two consecutive All-Defensive first-team nods and a third-team All-NBA bid last season — the Sixers would not be in this mess, facing another win-or-go-home game against an inferior team in the second round.  There is no couching that fact.

Two and a half games later, they were well into a downward spiral, down 16 at the half despite the return of Harden and on the verge of a 3-2 series deficit.
