Through 2 Quarters

The Washington Wizards were expected to take an ‘L’ in this one, but so far it isn’t playing out to script. They currently hold a 59-54 lead over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Power forward Kyle Kuzma has led the way so far for the Wizards, as he has 17 points and two assists along with four rebounds. One thing to keep an eye out for is Daniel Gafford’s foul situation as he currently sits at three.

Philadelphia has been led by point guard Tyrese Maxey, who so far has 14 points and four assists in addition to five boards.

What to Know

The Washington Wizards might have tired legs after a matchup yesterday as they head on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 2 at Wells Fargo Center. Philadelphia will be strutting in after a win while the Wizards will be stumbling in from a loss.

Washington received a tough blow on Tuesday as they fell 112-98 to the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite the defeat, Washington got a solid performance out of power forward Kyle Kuzma, who posted a double-double on 25 points and 11 rebounds along with three blocks.

Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but the Sixers ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Monday with a 122-119 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. Philadelphia’s point guard Tyrese Maxey was one of the most active players for the squad, picking up 33 points and eight assists in addition to four blocks.

Washington have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 10.50 point spread they are up against. Now might not be the best time to take Washington against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past six consecutive games.

The Wizards didn’t have too much trouble with the Sixers at home in the teams’ previous meeting last month as they won 117-98. Will Washington repeat their success, or do the Sixers have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
