Washington Wizards vs Philadelphia 76ers Preview & Betting Tips
The Philadelphia 76ers took a 2-0 lead in the series against the Washington Wizards. Unlike the first game, which was uncertain until the very end, Philadelphia dominated the second game and won 120-95, so this series moved to Washington. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons scored 22 points each. Embiid had 7 rebounds, while Simons had 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Tobias Harris, the hero of the first game, scored 19 points in the second. All in all, the entire Philadelphia team was up to the task.
On the other hand, Bradley Beal was the best player in the Wizards, scoring 33 points. As for Russell Westbrook, a lot was expected of him, and he played badly, scoring only 10 points in 29 minutes. However, the bad news for coach Scott Brooks is that Russell Westbrook's performance is questionable, as he sprained his ankle in the last quarter of the second game.
After two introductory victories at home, Philadelphia is now one step away from qualifying for the quarterfinals of the Eastern Conference. As we could see in the second game, the Philadelphia defence managed to get Russell Westbrook out of rhythm. Joel Embid and Tobias Harris continue to create many problems for the Wizards' defence. Unlike the first game, Ben Simons was impressive in the second, and his improvement in the game is an additional plus for the Philadelphia team. Washington will not give up so easily, especially now, but Philadelphia is a better team, and I expect a victory.
- The Philadelphia 76ers have won all 5 games this season against the Washington Wizards.
- D. Avdija and T. Bryant will miss Game 3 due to injury, and Russell Westbrook is questioned.
- Philadelphia will want to finish this series as soon as possible.
