After coming off of an incredible 114-110 win over the Miami Heat, the Sixers traveled to Washington to take on the Wizards Friday night at the Verizon Center.

The Wizards started off the game hot in the first quarter, as John Wall could not be stopped. Michael Carter-Williams struggled to make his baskets, and the Sixers struggled to keep up. At the end of one, Washington took the big, 33-21. In the second, the Sixers still weren’t rolling. While at times in the quarter they cut down the deficit, they still struggled to get consistent. Entering halftime, the score was 54-44 Wizards. The third quarter was where everything changed. The Sixers went on a few runs and by the end of the third, the score was tied, 74-74. In the fourth quarter, the Sixers still managed to fall behind again for a good majority of the beginning of the quarter, but about midway through the quarter, the Sixers took the lead. After MCW and Spencer Hawes hit a few clutch three’s, and held on to their lead, the Sixers went on to win 109-102.

As the Wizards fall to 0-2, the Sixers are still undefeated, 2-0, and have scored more than one hundred points in those two games.
