Wizards vs 76ers coverage
The Sixers are back in action looking to prevent the Wizards from notching road win (and boyfriend) number 2.
The Wizards are the 4th worst team in the NBA in Offensive Rating (102.2 per 100). It was even worse last night as they only managed 88.7 points per 100 possessions.
While their defensive rating is better, it's nothing they should get excited about. The Wizards are in the bottom third of the league, allowing 109.2 per 100.
The Wizards' woes are the road are no secret. They are currently 1-26 with their only victory coming in Cleveland.
The Sixers are 17-9 at home (7-3 in their last 10 inside the Wells Fargo Center)
The Sixers have had tremendous recent success going 7-3.
The Wizards, like all season long, have struggled and are 2-8.
Let's get back into the swing of things with the first game post all-star break. If the Sixers think they indeed are a team that could contend for the 6 seed, a loss cannot be the outcome tonight.
