The Philadelphia 76ers maintained their steady streak throughout the season. Under Doc Rivers, they became the second best defensive team in the league this season. Joel Embiid made it to the finals of the MVP race this year with his performance playing the most mature basketball of his career. Tobias Harris succeeded in pushing his performance up after Doc Rivers, who had the opportunity to work in Clippers years, became the head of the team. They have good backstage defenders like Ben Simmons, Danny Green. They received better contributions from the players from the sideline than in the past years. Most importantly, they made up for the team’s lack of shooters with the moves they made during the summer.
Washington Wizards, on the other hand, finished eighth in the regular season in the east with their debut in mid-April and came here to play the play-in. They are one of the fastest playing teams in the league. Russell Westbrook has been at the top of his form since his all-star. But Bradley Beal, the team’s main scorer, is out of shape due to a hamstring injury recently. Although he is the top scorer of the team in play-in matches, he is far from his former efficiency. As a team, they are very dependent on the performance of this duo. To hold onto the series against the Sixers, they have to get efficiency from the side parts, especially Davis Bertans.
The Philadelphia 76ers have weapons to match well with their rival. Ben Simmons, with his strong physique, is capable of limiting Weestbrook’s attacks to the basket. They can give Danny Green to the head of Beal because of his injury. They have an elite circle defender and assault weapon like Joel Embiid. They have one of the strongest five physically in the league. The Washington Wizards, on the other hand, achieved great success by qualifying for the playoffs under Scott Brooks. But they don’t have a squad that is compact enough to go beyond the main game plans. That’s why I expect Sixers to beat the handicap at home and win the first game of the series.
