NBA Playoffs 4th match of the Washington Wizards vs Philadelphia 76ers series will be played at Washington, where the home team will try to sneak at least one victory against series favourites. The first of two games played at Philadelphia was closer than expected and the Wizards showed that they can compete against the 76ers. To have more insights on this Washington Wizards vs Philadelphia 76ers match, please check out the preview below.
Washington Wizards haven’t won a single game against 76ers this season and it’s understandable – they only have 2 players who are good enough to compete in Playoffs. Most of their other players are too young, inexperienced or just not good enough to have a bigger impact on such a high stage. Westbrook and Beal have done their best but it still wasn’t enough to win the game on the road. Well, this time Wizards will have home court advantage on their side and it would be great momentum for this young team to win at least one playoffs game, especially against one of the favorites to win the conference.
Philadelphia 76ers struggled a little in the first game against Washington, but still managed to come back and win the game. Joel Embiid have played well throughout the whole season and there is no surprise he is performing well in Playoffs, but Ben Simmons and others have stepped up big time so far. Simmons almost managed to get a triple-double in the second game of the series while 76ers destroyed Washington by 25 points. Looking into Philadelphia’s roster, it’s very hard to find weak spots in this team because they have literally everything you would expect a championship team to have – from tall playmaking point guard to dominant centre.
