Magical Pixels, Wizards vs. 76ers: All hail Lord Athreeza!

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Trevor Ariza went bonkers Saturday as the Wizards defeated the 76ers, 122-103, for their sixth-straight win. Oh, and Allen Iverson had his jersey retired. The internet noticed.

Trevor Ariza went a little nuts last night, making his first eight threes (he then missed four straight, but we'll ignore that) and scoring a career-high 40 points en route to a 122-103 win over the 76ers, the Wizards' sixth victory in a row. John Wall certainly played his part, scoring 17 points to go with 16 assists, most of which ended in an ATHREEZA splash.

Marcin Gortat recorded his seventh consecutive double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds on 6-of-9 shooting, and Trevor Booker was big with 14 points (6-of-7 shooting) and seven boards in 29 minutes. Bradley Beal was fine with 11 points and five assists. Martell Webster scored 17 points off the bench.

In other news, the Sixers retired Allen Iverson's jersey in a touching halftime ceremony. And they gave him a boat.
