Hello, friends, and welcome.

Tonight the Wizards and Sixers will face off in yet another meaningless basketball game. Well, maybe not completely meaningless? As Mike points out:

A Sixers loss to the Wizards tonight would be gigantic. Sixers up 2 games on the Wiz in the standings. 1 on Raptors. 2 on Wolves.

So maybe the Sixers will lose and improve their chances at getting a better draft pick. Or maybe they'll just Sixers it and win and leave us all feeling empty and cold inside. Either way it's guaranteed to be a lot of fun (lol) so discuss the game here!

Quick thoughts:

  • After tonight, only 3 games left. So close, guys.
  • I'll be taking over the official Liberty Ballers twitter account (@Philly76ersBlog) tonight so go follow me on there!
  • Kwame Brown hasn't played in a while. I'm not complaining.
  • Swaggy P returns to play his former team. Read more about that in the Wizards preview over at Bullets Forever.
  • The Wizards have a bunch of injuries. Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster are expected to miss this game while Leandro Barbosa and Bradley Beal are out for the rest of the season.
  • This will be the last Sixers game I cover for LB in the 2012-2013 schedule. It's been a pretty crappy season but it's still been a fun ride. Kudos to the great LB community for making the site such a special place. Luv you.

If you aren't near a TV you can listen to the game live on the radio on 97.5 The Fanatic or 97.3 Atlantic City or 1470 Allentown.
