It’s week one of the NBA season and two teams who hope to be competing for a playoff spot face off in this one. It’s an Eastern Conference showdown at the Capital One Arena.
The Philadelphia 76ers make the trip to take on Washington Wizards. The 76ers have actually won two of the last three games played between the two teams.
For the Philadelphia 76ers this is the year that so many years of “trusting the process” should come to a head and this team will actually start competing, at least that is the hope inside their building.
They have all kinds of talent on this roster, it’s actually one of the most talented rosters in all the league, but it’s also a team that has had all kinds of injury issues, and the injuries need to stay away for this team to make the playoffs.
Joel Embiid is the star of this team but also the guy who always seems to be injured. He will be on a minutes restriction this year, playing somewhere in the teens in terms of minute.
Once he found out about the restriction he didn’t seem to be too thrilled with the idea, using a few expletives to describe his feeling.
To win this game the other guys around him need to have success and step up big. It will be interesting to see how strict they are at following the minutes restriction too close if the game is close near the end.
To win this game they are going need him to step up down the stretch and play key minutes. If he isn’t available to play those minutes they are going to have some issues winning this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Washington Wizards who are trying to take that next step forward and finally get past the Cavaliers and Celtics this season.
For the Wizards this team runs through John Wall, and he is the most important guy on this team. He is going to need to have a big game in this one.
The one thing the Wizards really focused on this off season was defense. Last year this team was terrible on the defensive side and they really are going to try and hunker down this season.
This is a huge game for this team as they try to not repeat what happened last year. Last year the Wizards struggled out of the gate, and they don’t want that to be the case again this year.

I think the Wizards have the advantage in this game only because Embiid isn’t going to play a full game.
