February 10, 2024





The Philadelphia 76ers will travel to Washington, District of Columbia to face the Washington Wizards at the Capital One Arena with tip-off scheduled for 7:00 PM ET on Saturday evening.

Joel Embiid’s impact on the success the 76ers have had this season is being felt now as the Philadelphia 76ers have only one win since his injury as they have lost eight of their last nine games and are on a four-game losing streak following Friday’s 121-127 loss at home against the Atlanta Hawks which has dropped their record to 30-21 and are in 5th place in the Eastern Conference. Before the injury, 

Joel Embiid was leading the team in scoring, rebounds, and blocks with an average of 35.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 1.76 blocks per game, however, he will not return to the lineup until the start of the NBA Playoffs. Philadelphia has been an above-average team offensively and defensively as they are averaging 8th most points per game with an average of 118.46 points per game while allowing an average of 113.66 points per game. The Philadelphia 76ers will look to end their four-game losing streak when they travel to face the Washington Wizards.

The Washington Wizards have the 2nd worst record in the Eastern Conference at 9-42 and are on a five-game losing streak following Friday’s 129-133 loss on the road against the Boston Celtics. The Wizards have been one of the worst teams defensively as they are allowing the 2nd most points per game with an average of 123.84 points allowed per game while also being below-average offensively as they are averaging 114.52 points per game. Kyle Kuzma is one of the better players on the team as he leads the team in scoring with an average of 21.9 points per game. The Washington Wizards will look to end their five-game losing streak when they host the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday evening.
