Landry Shamet’s three point shooting led the way as Philly torched the Wiz.

NBA: Washington Wizards at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers outclassed the Washington Wizards in a 132-115 rout on Tuesday night. The Sixers’ victory was one of the funnest watches of the 2018-2019 season, and if you did not see it yourself, you might not believe all of the following happened:

  • The Sixers won by 17 and none of Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler or Ben Simmons played more than 27 minutes.
  • The Sixers tied a season high for three pointers made in a single game (17), on a night in which JJ Redick did not play.
  • Every single active Sixers player scored.
  • 3 part-time G-Leaguers saw action for the Sixers, including Shake Milton’s 20 minutes.
  • Chasson Randle made a triumphant 23 minute return to the Wells Fargo Center’s floor (not for the Sixers, of course).
  • Landry Shamet tied the rookie record for threes made in a single game (8), and scored 29 points!
  • Haywood Highsmith, who signed with the Sixers this afternoon, saw five minutes of action and scored his first NBA bucket.
  • There was a five-ish minute stretch during which Brett Brown ran out a lineup of Shake Milton, Jonah Bolden, Haywood Highsmith, Furkan Korkmaz and Amir Johnson. (I’m pretty sure this happened, but things were getting a little crazy late in the fourth quarter, and now I think I imagined it.)

The Washington Wizards looked more like the Washington Generals tonight. The lone bright spot for the Wiz was Bradley Beal, who scored 28 points on 11-18 from the floor. (He would look nice in a Sixers uniform.) This Wizards team is dreadful.
