Sixers vs Wizards NBA Live: This will be the fifth meeting in the 7-game series between the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards. After Philly won the first three games, the Wizards finally were able to get a win rallying around a spectacular 19 points, 21 rebounds, and 14 assists showing by Russell Westbrook. More information about PHI vs WAS Dream11 will be given here.
76ers vs Wizards NBA Playoffs Game 5: The Sixers have been hot to handle for the Wizards but since there is a huge gulf in terms of depth in most positions, it is not so surprising. The Wizards won game 4 because Embiid had to leave early because of an injury and they cut down the passing angles, something they would need to repeat here again in Game 5. However, it seems unlikely that the Wizards will be able to win three in a row from here considering that the Sixers are going to be a headache away from home.

*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 60
Russell is one of the most talented players to ever play the game, however, except for one NBA Finals entry(that too in his early years), deep Playoffs success has enabled him. Russell has shooting troubles during the Playoffs and that makes it tougher for him to emerge on the winning side, despite an impressive stat line he only shot 3/19, chucking up shots after shots. However, despite that Westbrook is one of the favorite candidates here as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Joel is one of the most difficult players to guard, his low-post game, mid-range shooting, and more than decent handling skills give hiccups to most defenders in the league. The flexible big man managed to outperform the Wizards in the first 3 games but was relegated to 8 points as he had to leave because of an injury. He is doubtful for the game.
Beal’s extraordinary offensive skills set him apart from many players in the league and he is one of the most versatile scorers in the league. He has continued to be impressive in the series, averaging 28.6 PPG since the postseason began. He scooped up 27 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists in Game 4.
Simmons is a spicy guard who can rack up assists, rebounds, and also provide decent offense. However, his defense is what makes him special and he can be disruptive on that end. He got hold of 13 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 assists in the Game 4 loss.
Tobias Harris: PPG: 19.5 RPG: 6.8 APG: 3.5 TPG: 1.7
Tobias can score in multiple ways and can play great defense as well. Harris is what makes this 76ers team special as he can provide substantial contributions. He racked up 21 points, 13 rebounds, and 5 assists.
Rui Hachimura: PPG: 13.8 RPG: 5.5 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 23
Rui has to be a crucial piece for the Wizards as they look to find scorers outside of Beal and Westbrook. It is no coincidence that the Wizards beat the Sixers in Game 4 as Rui put up 20 points and 13 rebounds.
Danny Green: PPG: 9.7 RPG: 3.6 SPG: 1.3 PFP: 24
Green is a 3 and D player who acts as the complementary piece in a dynamic scoring lineup. He posted 11 points in Game 4.
Daniel Gafford had 12 points and 4 rebounds in Game 4.
Seth Curry had 10 points in Game 4.
PG: R Westbrook(SP), B Simmons(PP), T Maxey
