That’s a pretty pitiful road loss, the type of loss that helps determine whether you’re playing as a #1 seed or a #3 seed come playoff time.
After two days off, you take a short trip down Interstate 95 to play a 6-13 Wizards team, you start out fine, and then completely stop playing defense. The effort fades as you give up 40 second quarter points. You turn the ball over 21 times and concede 21 second-chance points to the NBA’s 23rd-ranked offensive rebounding team. Then you put together a 10-0 run only to watch the bottom fall out again.
The Sixers have now lost 10 straight games at Capital One Arena, that last win coming way back in 2013, which feels like a lifetime ago. This is the type of film you put straight in the garbage bin, so I’ll keep this recap very short, because nobody needs to spend too much time reliving that fiasco.
