Philadelphia has won eight-straight against Washington, and see this game similar to Game Four of the Milwaukee-Miami series, when the Heat put up a fight for a while, but ultimately succumbed to the irresistible force. The Sixers have clearly been the superior team in this matchup, scoring 126 ppg and shooting a healthy 54.5%, holding edges in rebounding, assists, steals, blocks and shooting percentages while winning by an average of more than 20 ppg in the three playoff matchups against Washington.
Injury report for Game 4 of #WizSixers:
Russell Westbrook (right ankle sprain) and Ish Smith (left groin strain) are both questionable tomorrow.

Much like Jimmy Butler against the Bucks, wouldn’t be surprised if Russell Westbrook (again iffy with his ankle injury) gets animated and tosses a chair or some such demonstration of valor, but ultimately he and backcourt mate Bradley Beal aren’t enough to deal with Sixer C Joel Embiid (28 ppg, 55% FGs), PF Tobias Harris 25 ppg, 57% and 9.3 rpg) and PG Ben Simmons (14 ppg, 62%, 10 rpg and 11 apg). Westbrook is obviously compromised with his ankle injury (17 ppg, 40% FGs), and historically, and Bradley Beal having a big game is no guarantee the Wizards can win. Sixers are 33-22 as a favorite this season, and not sure a trip back to Philly to get eliminated and receive a popcorn shower is exactly what Washington is looking for right now (One-Two-Three Cancun!). Play Philadelphia and Over.
