The Washington Wizards' second game in as many nights against the Philadelphia 76ers ended in similar fashion to the first game. The WIzards were slightly more competitive on Saturday, but ultimately still fell by double digits, losing, 103-90.
There were some bright spots this time around. Center JaVale McGee had 23 points, 18 rebounds and five blocked shots, while guard Nick Young had 27 points. But the Wizards couldn't counter a balanced effort from the 76ers, who placed five in double figures, led by 24 from Louis Williams off the bench.
A strong second quarter was the difference in this one. Philadelphia outscored Washington, 29-14, in the quarter, eventually taking a 12-point lead at halftime. They extended that lead to 17 points after three quarters and extended that lead past 20 points early in the fourth quarter.
