Sixers Lose To Wizards, Streak Extends to 13

Washington Wizards 122 Final
Recap | Box Score
103 Philadelphia 76ers
Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 35 MIN | 7-14 FG | 3-4 FT | 3 REB | 5 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 17 PTS | -31Young was his usual, consistent self, scoring in a variety of ways as he pushed in transition and converted around the hoop. Without a legitimate rim protector next to him though, he couldn’t help stop the defensive bleeding that allowed Washington easy access to the paint.

Michael Carter-Williams, PG Shot Chart 30 MIN | 5-14 FG | 4-6 FT | 6 REB | 7 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 15 PTS | -26MCW attacked the rim early, but he wasn’t exactly efficient in doing so. His aggression earned him some early freebies and his well-rounded stat line makes it look like a strong outing, but he also didn’t score in the second half and was 5-14 from the field.

James Anderson, SG Shot Chart 27 MIN | 5-11 FG | 1-1 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 3 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 13 PTS | -16Anderson was 2-7 from beyond the arc and was lost on defense as part of the contingent that chased around Trevor Ariza (40 points!!). Still, he found a way to make an impact by leaking out in transition for some easy buckets.

Eric Maynor, PG Shot Chart 18 MIN | 5-7 FG | 1-4 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 13 PTS | +5In what seemed to be Maynor’s “revenge” game against the Wizards, he scored an efficient 13 points and helped Philly hang around (temporarily) in the second quarter. He dropped a three in his former starting point guard’s grill and somehow managed to finish the game with a +5.

Tony Wroten, SG Shot Chart 27 MIN | 5-12 FG | 9-12 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 19 PTS | -5Before the Sixers were completely out of the game, Wroten gave them a jolt, leading a run to diminish Washington’s sizable first quarter lead. He was constantly pushing the pace and challenging the Wizards’ bigs at the rim. He even tried a few fancy tricks with the ball, perhaps as homage to Allen Iverson, who saw his jersey raised to the rafters at halftime.

By the numbers: 40. As in 40 points. For Trevor Ariza. Who was 8-12 from beyond the arc and perfect on his first seven 3-point attempts. 29 of those 40 points came in the first half and 24 came in the first quarter.

Tweet of the night:

Parting Shots: On a night that was all about The Answer, the 76ers couldn’t come up with one for John Wall or Trevor Ariza. Washington took advantage of the the fast pace and lit up the Sixers for 120 points. This losing streak may never end.
