Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers are 1st on the table of the East Conference with six wins from seven matches. They are on the run of four wins in a row. Philadelphia 76ers should be too good for the Washington Wizards, so I expect their win in this match.

Details:

The Sixers are playing about as well as anybody in the NBA. They have the shooters now to surround Embiid and with Simmons, they have the best defense in the league. They held Washington to 107 in that first game and forced 19 turnovers. They also outrebounded them by 7. Washington's best rebounder is Westbrook

Of all NBA players averaging 20 or more minutes per game, Milton, Harris and Embiid rank third, fourth and fifth, respectively in individual Defensive Rating. Curry ranks 18th, Green 35th and Simmons 38th. That is insane. Philadelphia can start five guys in the top-40 in Defensive Rating and have another one come off the bench.

This will be a simply put, the defense for the Philadelphia 76ers will shut down the Washington Wizards offense with strong defense at the perimeter led by Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Shake Milton. The total has finished under in eight of the last nine games that Philadelphia has played overall and in five of the last six games that Philadelphia has played on its home court. Over 232.5 is just too high in a game with the league’s best defense.
