Philadelphia comes into this game having won four of their last five games and each of their last three. The Wizards in the meantime are coming off a big win last Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. If Washington can win each of their next two games against Philly, they should end up in better shape.
Still, the Wizards are well below .500 and from eighth place in the Eastern Conference. We are entering the second half of the season and the Wizards still haven’t turned a corner. At this point, it is safer to conclude that Washington is likely missing the playoffs.
I am still impressed from the Wizards’ performance against the Thunder, even though it may ultimately not mean much for their postseason hopes. Let’s see how things go tonight. Go Wizards.
