The Wizards may have saved their season to claim the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, but they don’t stand much of a chance in this series against the Philadelphia 76ers. Nobody won more games at home this season in the East than the Sixers. Doc Rivers has plenty of experiences with success and failure in the NBA Playoffs, and his leadership could be the difference for the 76ers, as they attempt to complete “the process.”
