G8: Wiz@76ers: 01/06/21 7PM

Wizards almost beat us in the first game. I believe they even had a double digit lead in the fourth.

We know what to expect. Seth will be on Avdija, their backcourt will be defended by Green and Ben.

We eventually won this game with our stellar play down the stretch, and partly because Westbrook and Thomas Bryant were lost on their rotations when we run our PnRs.

I think they’d be better this time around. But then.. they’re one of the worst defensive teams in the league.

Not a good team but 2 dangerous players. But I love the team effort I've seen these last 2 games. Keep things consistent and this should be a win.

Is Joel Embiid playing? That is the question.

I think Jo will push for MVP this season and will try to miss as few games as possible.

Embiid better be playing. Thomas Bryant has been pretty active and productive.

If the sixers play their game its an easy win,we are starting to click
on offense and the defense is already great.

From what it sounds like, he really did have back tightness, so I'm not sure it was load management.
