The Washington Wizards find themselves in the hunt for one of the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spots, while the Philadelphia 76ers are doing everything in their power to tank this season and earn the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
These teams tip off at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at 7:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 17.
The Wizards are coming off of two blowout wins, which is always good for team morale. What makes those wins even better, though, is that they came against two squads who are also looking to land one of the final playoff spots out East in the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons.
Washington looks focused, but it’s tough to ever actually trust this team. Outside of John Wall, there’s little consistency on a week-to-week basis.
Looking ahead, there’s a good chance this team blows up the roster and looks to rebuild around Wall. Or at least it should, unless, of course, it remains as stubborn as its been to make things work as is.
But looking to Thursday’s showdown with the Sixers, there’s little need to overthink things. Washington is a mediocre basketball team at the moment, but Philly is downright awful.
Look for the Wizards to put on a show on the road.
The Philadelphia 76ers just can’t get it together. And while that may be a good thing with freshman phenom Ben Simmons on the line, the group at hand would benefit from playing in competitive games as the (hopefully last) tank-tastic season comes to a close.
Entering Thursday’s contest, Philly has lost two straight. Their last win came against the lowly Brooklyn Nets on March 12, and ironically, their last win before that was also against Brooklyn back on Feb. 6.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Philadelphia 76ers Prediction
The Wizards may not be offensively efficient (they’re just 22nd leaguewide in that category), but there are two reasons to believe they’ll put up plenty of points in this one.
Philadelphia is 26th in terms of defensive efficiency, and Washington plays at the fifth-fastest pace in the NBA.

The bad news for fans who want to see Philly compete? The Sixers are dead last in offensive efficiency.
But as we discussed earlier, this team is targeting a first-overall pick this summer. So a blowout loss, while the exact opposite of entertainment for the home crowd, is actually good news for this organization.
