Ben Simmons Finally Showed Up

After four straight games of curious anonymity, Ben Simmons finally arrived—and just in time.

Thanks to Simmons’ 21 points and bevy of rebounds and assists, the Philadelphia 76ers lived to fight another day.

The Sixers are now tied 3-3 in their series against the Toronto Raptors thanks to the comfortable 112-101 win on Thursday.

Simmons had struggled mightily in this Eastern Conference semifinals series coming into Game 6.

He had scored just 33 points in his previous four games, and attempted a paltry three free throws in that span.

From the start on Thursday, Simmons came out attacking.

If the Sixers are going to win Game 7 on Sunday, they’ll need Joel Embiid’s body to cooperate and they’ll need their various marquee players to step up.
