For the third straight seeding game, the 76ers will be facing a depleted lineup when they meet the Washington Wizards in Wednesday’s 4 p.m. matchup at the Wide World of Sports Complex in Kissimmee, Fla.
Unlike the first two teams, Indiana and San Antonio, the Wizards have not been able to make up for the loss of key players.
Bertans was outstanding in the Wizards’ 119-113 home win over the Sixers on Dec 5. “We have five more games and we will play the same way.”
So the Wizards aren’t laying down, but it is a team that the Sixers should not have to take down to the wire. While the Wizards are a young team that continues to play hard, it is still difficult to make up for the lack of experience and talent they will face against the Sixers.
