-----------------------------------

 

 

Philadelphia 76ers:

 

Partly due to Embiid’s injury and leaving the game as a result, the 76ers lost 114-122 in G4. In G4, Embiid left after playing just 11 minutes with a calf injury. 76ers missed 26 of their 38 three-point attempts and shot just 42 percent overall. 76ers listed Embiid as doubtful for Game 5 on Wednesday. He will be further evaluated over the next 24 hours.

 

Washington Wizards:

 

Westbrook contributed 19 points, 21 rebounds, and 14 assists and  Beal led all scorers with 27 points on 9-for-23 shooting to help the Wizards outscored Philadelphia by 13 points during the third quarter and won the game. Bad news for the Wizards, however, Bertans would miss 4 to 6 weeks with a right calf strain in G4.

 

 

Prediction:

 

Back home, 76ers will aim to end this series with a win, as losing G5 would cost them too much, they won 29 of their 36 home games during the regular season, expect 76ers to win.
