Wizards Vs. 76ers: Washington Looks To Impress Against Surprising Philadelphia Squad

The Washington Wizards recorded their first win of the season earlier this week, but all of the good will from that win is already gone after a disappointing loss to the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls in their very next game. They'll have a chance to get back on track with a couple games against the Philadelphia 76ers this weekend, starting Friday night in Philly. The game starts at 7:00 and can be seen on CSN.

The 76ers are the most surprising team in the NBA this year, and it's not because they have a good record, it's because of the way they've gotten to that number. They average the sixth highest points per game in the NBA while also boasting the best defense in the league. They've blown out a number of teams, so the Wizards are going to face an uphill battle this weekend.
