The Philadelphia 76ers invade the Wells Fargo Center to battle the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. Here's a 76ers vs Wizards prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in a rut as they've lost six of their last 10 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting beaten by the Celtics in a 125-119 road loss on Friday. Patrick Beverley led the team with 26 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, De'Anthony Melton added 21 points while Robert Convington chipped in with 18 points and five steals off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 45 percent from the field and 16 of 35 from the 3-point line as they poured in 72 points in the first half to take the early lead, but they went cold when it mattered most, scoring just three points in the final 2:27 to allow the Celtics off the hook in the end.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in terrible form as they've lost 11 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after falling just short to the Magic in a 130-125 road loss on Friday. Kyle Kuzma led the team iwth 27 points on 10 of 18 shooting, Daniel Gafford added 18 points with 11 rebounds and three blocks while Corey Kispert chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Wizards shot 50 percent from the field and 13 of 28 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 36 points in the first quarter to lead for most of the contest, until the Magic used a pivotal 7-0 run in the fourth quarter to steal the win from them in a tight finish.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for opponent assists per game this season (29.7).
  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for rebounds per game this season (39.1).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for free throws made per game this season (23.4).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for Q3 win percentage this season (68.4%).

76ers vs Wizards prediction

The 76ers are coming into this one with a full roster, while the Wizards are keeping eyes on Johnny Davis, Landry Shamet and Jordan Poole who are all questionable at the moment. The 76ers could really do with a win to get their season back on track after a bit of a rut and I think they get just that against this slumping Wizards team who can barely buy a win these days.
