Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers were able to knock off the Washington Wizards on Wednesday 107-98 despite losing Ben Simmons to a knee injury in the third quarter. It wasn’t a particularly pretty win, but with the Sixers, when is it ever pretty?

The team came out slow in the third quarter as they did not play with any real intensity on defense and it showed as Washington rallied from a double-digit deficit to take the lead. However, when coach Brett Brown inserted Al Horford into the game, a change in their defense was noticeable despite finishing with only two points.

“The physicality of that game you felt,” said Brown.
