Can the Wizards snap a five-game losing streak against a 76ers team that may not have Andre Iguodala?

The Washington Wizards have lost five straight games including Thursday's 93-89 loss to the Indiana Pacers. Despite the recent slump there is cause for optimism with four of those five games being decided by four points or less.

They enter Friday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a decent enough chance to break that streak as Andre Iguodala is dealing with tendinitis in his left patella and will be a game-time decision on Friday. However, the 76ers have won five games in a row against Washington and are 18-5 against teams under .500 this season.

John Wall is going to need to limit his turnovers in this game. Despite scoring 13 points in the game he also committed five turnovers including one in the closing seconds of Thursday's game against the Pacers which thwarted a possible game tying shot. Despite the end result, Jordan Crawford led the Wizards with 20 points and Nene scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.

The game is scheduled for tip off at 7 p.m. at the Verizon Center. Television coverage will be provided by Comcast Sports Network.
