Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards are on the verge of getting eliminated in the first round for the second consecutive playoff feature. Things got worse for the Wizards after losing Russell Westbrook to an apparent ankle injury early in the fourth quarter of Game 2. It has been an overall poor display from the Washington Wizards, who have been outclassed in this series. In Game 2, the Wizards were 2 of 22 from beyond the arc, which was the leading factor in their 120-95 loss. The Washington Wizards finished two games above .500 at home and rank third in the league in scoring (116.6 ppg).

The Philadelphia 76ers have started the postseason on an incredible note and have cemented their top-contender status in the 2021 NBA playoffs.

However, the Doc Rivers-coached team have found a way to assert their dominance.The top-seeded 76ers held serve by winning the first two games of this series at home and rank seventh in the league in scoring defense (109.4 ppg).

 

Prediction

With how the first two games have progressed, the Philadelphia 76ers advancing to the second round is not in doubt. Although things will get intense at the Capital One Arena, the Philadelphia 76ers are favorites to clinch the victory.
