76ers vs Wizards NBA Playoffs Game 2: In the first game, the Sixers took advantage of a lax Wizards defense and despite Beal erupting for 33 points, they were unable to win the game. The Sixers have a lot of players who can take advantage of poor defense and Washington will be obliterated quickly if they don’t fix their defensive issues. There was a reason why Philly finished 1st in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference.

*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 60
Westbrook is a triple-double threat on a nightly basis and his athleticism and skills make him an incredible player. However, he will need to produce more offensively and also pay close attention to defense if they are to be competitive against the Sixers though he did accumulate 16 points and 14 assists in Game 1. Overall, Westbrook is one of the favorite candidates here as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Joel is a nightmare to defend on the low block and has a throwback big man type of moves to finish around the rim. His length and flexibility were at full display in Game 1 when he took the Wizards’ Centers apart, collecting 30 points. Wizards need an answer to guard against this challenging big man.
Beal is one of the best scorers in the league and despite playing through injury, he is a major threat. His skills were on full display in the first game, where he posted 33 points and 10 rebounds, while also dishing out 6 assists.
Simmons is responsible for being the floor general for his squad and in addition to that, he can score inside and rebound the well. However, his defense is what makes him special and he can be disruptive on that end. He lodged a versatile stat line in the Game 1 victory, registering 6 points, 15 rebounds, and 15 assists.
Tobias Harris: PPG: 19.5 RPG: 6.8 APG: 3.5 TPG: 1.7
When in doubt, dish it to Tobias. Harris is a superb offensive player and his length makes him a difficult player to guard. He proved he was too much for Washington in their first game of the series, hoarding 37 points.
Rui Hachimura: PPG: 13.8 RPG: 5.5 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 23
The young Hachimura is an “X-Factor” for the Wizards and will certainly need to step up his game against the Sixers. He collected 12 points in the loss against the Sixers.
Danny Green: PPG: 9.7 RPG: 3.6 SPG: 1.3 PFP: 24
Green has been known for hitting the 3 and defending the perimeter for a long time and his offense plays a complementary role for the Sixers. He posted 11 points in the Game 1 win.
Daniel Gafford had 12 points and 6 rebounds in the loss against the Sixers.
Davis Bertans scored 14 points and 5 rebounds against the Sixers.
