Venue: Wells Fargo Center – Philadelphia, PA
The Washington Wizards put up a good fight. They forced the 76ers offense to put up points, and even when it looked like the 76ers were pulling away, the Wizards clawed their way back. Washington even led at the half and for a good portion of the third quarter. But the 76ers ultimately proved to be too much for the Wizards. Even when Joel Embiid found himself in foul trouble, Philadelphia relied on Tobias Harris to carry the offense, and he delivered 37 points. If the Wizards were going to beat the 76ers, Game 1 would have been the time to do it. Now, Philadelphia will look to run downhill against Washington in Game 2.
