Sixers vs Wizards Preseason Round 2

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Monday, December 19, 2011


Washington Wizards @ Philadelphia 76ers (7pm)

On Tuesday night, the Wizards will play their 2nd and final preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Philly.  The Zards are coming off of a devastating loss to the Sixers, a 103-78 blowout in DC on Friday night where the offense was terrible...and the defense was terrible...

Nick Young will be back with the team after finally re-signing with the Wizards on Monday.  While he was gone, Jordan Crawford moved into the slot of starting shooting guard, and NY will have to play well to retake his position.

Trevor Booker, who missed the last preseason game will also be back from an injury on Tuesday.  I am thinking that Flip may hold out JaVale in the preseason finale as a precaution based on the following tweet from Michael Lee.

In the last matchup, Sixers star Andre Iguodala was held scoreless in 20 minutes of play, so look for him to step it up before the season starts.

If the Wizards let the Sixers shoot 50% from the field again, or shoot around 30% themselves, it could be a sign that it is going to be a long season.
