The Washington Wizards and Philadelphia 76ers face off on Wednesday in an NBA Eastern Conference playoff showdown at the Wells Fargo Center. 

The Philadelphia 76ers had won the first three games of the series before the Wizards were able to win the last game. Each of the last two games between these two teams has had at least 235 points scored 

The Philadelphia 76ers looked really good during the first three games of this series, but there has to be some major concern about the team heading into this game with Joel Embiid not being expected to be able to go in this game. Embiid is dealing with a knee injury and it would be a real shocker if he was able to go play in his game. After Embiid left the last game, the 76ers had some major issues and were defeated. Ben Simmons is going to need to step up in this game, and that could start at the free-throw line. The WIzards have started to foul Simmons to send him to the free-throw line on purpose and he needs to take advantage.

On the other side of this matchup is the Washington Wizards who looked dead in the water before Embiid was injured. In the last game, the difference-maker was Bradley Beal who finished with 27 points, four rebounds, and four assists. Russell Westbrook also had quite the game finishing with 19 points, 21 rebounds, and 14 assists. The Wizards’ offense looked good in the last game, but the defense was still an issue and in this game, they are going to need to have the defense step up a little bit. 

Wizards are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Philadelphia. Over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Philadelphia. Wizards are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The 76ers now know they aren’t playing with Embiid and they are going to find success in this game. Look for a big game from Simmons and others on the team will step up too, and that will be the difference as the 76ers cover this spread.
