The Washington Wizards find themselves down thirty points after just twenty-four minutes of play in Philadelphia. The 76ers shot a blistering 65 percent from the floor in the first half, jumping out to a 62-32 lead in what could be Washington's least competitive half so far this season. The Sixers have three players in double figures already, as they spread it around and added twenty assists on 26 of 40 shooting. Thaddeus Young leads all scorers with 12 points off the bench, while Elton Brand and Jrue Holiday added 11 each.
While giving up easy bucket after easy bucket on the defensive end, the Wizards have no momentum on the offensive end either - threatening to match the franchise-low 64 points they scored in Chicago earlier this season. John Wall is tied for a team-high six points but has four turnovers already. With the outcome not in doubt, the Wizards can only try and make it respectable over the final half in Philly.
