Philadelphia 76ers vs Washington Wizards Date and Time: Saturday, May 29,2021 7:00 PM ET Venue: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C. Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Washington Wizards have a chance to turn things around as they host the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 3 of the NBA playoffs first-round series at the Capital One Arena in Washington.
The Sixers lead the series 2-0 with two convincing home wins at the Wells Fargo Arena. A spectacular defensive display by the Eastern Conference top seed has been the difference in this series.
Russell Westbrook and the Washington Wizards failed to record a win in the Wizards’ first playoff appearance since the 2018 season. Back then, they were sent home by the Toronto Raptors in the first round after six games.
The Philadelphia 76ers have started the postseason on an incredible note and have cemented their top-contender status in the 2021 NBA playoffs. No one expected the series to be a cakewalk for the 76ers considering Russell’s recent form. However, the Doc Rivers-coached team have found a way to assert their dominance.
Tobias Harris led the Philadelphia 76ers to a victory in Game 1 with 37 points. His inspiring performances, coupled with meaningful contributions from the bench, have spurred the team to victories.
With how the first two games have progressed, the Philadelphia 76ers advancing to the second round is not in doubt. The Sixers defense has managed to marshall Russell Westbrook, the orchestrator of the Washington Wizards’ plays.
Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris are locked-in and are causing all sorts of problems for the Wizards’ defense. An improvement in Ben Simmons’ production from the free-throw line will be the icing on the cake.
Although things will get intense at the Capital One Arena, the Philadelphia 76ers are favorites to clinch the victory.
