Washington Wizards vs Philadelphia 76ers Date and Time: Thursday, June 3,2021 4:30 AM IST Venue: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA. Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Washington Wizards have survived and taken Game 4 of the first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers. They now head back to Wells Fargo Center for Game 5 for another shot at keeping their season alive and hopefully forcing a Game 6.
The 76ers faced a major blow when their star center and MVP candidate, Joel Embiid, got injured in the 1st quarter and had to leave the game for the rest of the game.
The Philadelphia 76ers’ offense crumbled when Joel Embiid got hurt in the 1st quarter of Game 4. They were looking to complete a sweep and get some rest before the second round buy collapsed after Embiid left the floor.
The rest of the 76ers got buckets and managed to keep the game close but the Wizards kept pulling away. Ben Simmons missed crucial free throws and Russell Westbrook and co. took advantage.
The Washington Wizards took advantage of Joel Embiid’s early exit in Game 4 and capitalized on their lack of offensive rhythm. Several players made big shots on the team and a cohesive team effort got the victory. As many as seven players scored in double figures, with Bradley Beal dropping a game-high 27 points.
The Philadelphia 76ers are still the favorites to win the game over the 8th-seeded Washington Wizards. They have won 10 of 21 games without Embiid this season and if they game-plan without him, many believe they can win at home.
The 76ers had a horrible shooting night in Game 4 and the game was still very close. If they just manage to hit some of the shots they were missing down the stretch, the series could be over in their match.
However, we have seen the Wizards mount incredible comebacks this season and given Embiid’s absence, they might have a slight edge in the paint.
