It wasn't as exciting as the win over the Miami Heat, but the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Washington Wizards by a score of 109-102 to remain undefeated. Seriously.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Nothing makes any sense anymore. Left is right. Up is down. And a team - the Philadelphia 76ers - that is supposed to be one of the worst squads in league history is now 2-0 after a 109-102 victory over the Washington Wizards Friday night.

It was ugly early: John Wall scored 15 points in the first 8 minutes of the game, and the Sixers were down by 12 at the end of the first quarter. But thanks to a total team effort - 6 players finished in double-figures - the 76ers are still undefeated on the young season.

Thaddeus Young led the charge with 29 points (on 14-for-20 shooting) and eight rebounds, an aggressive Evan Turner poured in 23, and after a slow start, rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds for good measure.

There's no rest for the weary: The Sixers are right back at it tomorrow night as they host the Chicago Bulls at the Wells Fargo Center.

Passionate. Intense. Too proud to tank properly.
