Wizards get their first post All-Star game home game against the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia 76ers.

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

The Washington Wizards will play the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at 8 p.m. ET at the Capital One Arena. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Washington.

The Wizards are coming off a loss to the Grizzlies in the first game after the All-Star Break. At 14-21, the Wizards are in 12th place looking for the opportunity to climb up the standings, but it will be a challenge as they face the team that is currently the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

On the season, the Sixers lead this series 2-0, with both wins decided in the final moments in Philadelphia. Philly will be without Ben Simmons, who is out due to contact tracing.

This should be an interesting game for the Wizards and could be an opportunity for the Wizards to take advantage of a short-handed team. Let’s get the discussion going.
