On Sunday February 25, the Philadelphia 76ers arrive at the Capital One Arena to face their host the Washington Wizards. Philly will be on the second night of a back to back set playing in Orlando on Saturday.
Washington lost their last outing getting blown out at home by the Charlotte Hornets.
Last season the 76ers took two of the three games over the Wizards and this season the teams have won each of their home court games with the Sixers up 2-1 in the season series. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 179 of their 299 matches.
Since the calendar turned the Sixers have been one of the hottest teams in the Association. In January, the Sixers produced the sixth best offense and fourth ranked defense.
In February Philadelphia’s emphasis seems to have shifted entirely to defense where they rank first, but their offense has slipped to 15th.
Clearly the Joel Embiid leads the way with Ben Simmons providing a capable partner. The addition of Marco Belinelli is also expected to help add scoring off the Sixers bench.
Several 76ers are nursing injuries with Demetrius Jackson (adductor strain), Justin Anderson (ankle) and Furkan Korkmaz (foot) all likely out for this match.
Curiously, Markelle Fultz the number one draft pick of this past summer’s draft remains sidelined with the shooting issues stemming from his shoulder injury.
Despite not having John Wall the Wizards have managed to produce quality victories. That said the Wizards continue to flirt with disaster as this week is testimony of.
In their first game back from the break the Wizards took down the Cavaliers on the road, but then inexplicably got ousted on their home court to an inferior Hornets squad.
These are the opportunities Washington can’t afford to not capitalize on with the East so tightly bunched between the third and ninth seeds.
Washington has a brutal segment of games on tap so their ability to keep beating elite clubs will be tested. To wit, the next 13 games the Wizards play are all against current playoff seeds.
Jason Smith (illness) missed three games and is questionable for Sunday. John Wall is expected to be out until late March.

The combination of the Sixers playing on a back to back, the Wizards getting blown out in their previous game and Washington performing best against elite squads should translate into the Wizards capturing the win.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Washington -1.5
Marcin Gortat will have his hands full dealing with Joel Embiid, but the length of the Wizards wings should offer answers to slow Ben Simmons.
