This Eastern Conference matchup has the Sixers traveling to D.C. to face a surging Wizards team.
Philadelphia has won 3 of their last 4 games while the Wizards are 6-2 in their last 8.
With #1 overall pick Ben Simmons still nursing an injured foot, the Sixers have continued to struggle, but their is a bright spot on the team in “rookie” center Joel Embiid.
While the coaching staff continues to monitor his minutes, Embiid is putting up All Star caliber numbers and is a darkhorse to make the Eastern roster next month.
He is averaging 19 points and 7 rebounds per game and his play alongside Nerlens Noel gives Philly a strong front line on both ends of the floor.
Embiid has put up 20+ points in six straight games going into Wednesday’s contest against New York. I see no reason why he won’t put up 20 in that game and make this one the 8th in a row.
Jhalil Okafor is the forgotten big man on the Sixers roster. He had a DNP -Cd (Did not play coach’s decision) against the Celtics. Don’t look for him to make much of an impact if he plays in this contest.
Nerlens Noel provides a good defensive spark off the bench for Philadelphia team. Expect him to face off against Gortat in the 2nd and 3rd quarters, but still put up respectable numbers. A double double with 4 blocks won’t be out of the question.
Washington has greatly improved their play over the last couple of weeks. A team that was destined for a lottery pick now may get homecourt advantage in a first round matchup. John wall continues his case for best point guard in the East, and has probably secured an All Star roster spot.
Wall had a great performance against the Bulls on Tuesday night, scoring 26 points and dishing out an amazing 14 assists in the Wizards close victory.
Philly is weak at the guard spots on the defensive side of the ball so look for another big double double from Wall.
Bradley Beal is shooting the ball like a man possessed the last couple of weeks. He put up 19 points and was 3-6 from 3 point range in the Wizards win over the Bulls.
Beal can light up any defense and Robert covington will have a hard time keeping up with the sharpshooter all night. Beal should get 20+ with ease.
Otto Porter is a good small forward in a loaded position in the Eastern Conference. He is a good defender and can also shoot from deep when called upon.
He’s put up double digit points in 5 straight games and is a good #3 scoring option when Wall and Beal’s shots aren’t falling. Expect modest numbers from Porter tonight as he won’t reach double digits in scoring but will get 10 rebounds.
Marcin Gortat continues to be a rebounding machine and should provide a strong presence on both sides of the ball for the Wizards front line.
