Arenas is back !
Hello everyone again ! We ll continue our journey in the NBA with another free tip . Today s game will be played at Verizon Center starting at 7,00 local time in Washington DC between Washington Wizards and Philadelphia 76ers .
The Wizards showed they can win a game without Gilbert Arenas , but considering all the latest reports he will be back in the line up for tonight s game . Arenas sat out the Wizards’ most recent victory – a 109-90 rout of Portland on Saturday – due to lingering complications from offseason knee surgery. He has had fluid removed from the knee twice in three weeks, but Wizards coach Eddie Jordan expects his star back to face the 76ers.
“It seems like he’s going to play,” said Jordan after practice on Monday. “Our policy is that whenever we can give him some time off, we will.”
Washington has to feel confident in itself regardless of Arenas’ status .They won the last 4 games by 11, 13 , 16 , 19 points … and scored more than 100 points in each victory.
Philadelphia rallied to defeat Portland 92-88 on Friday to snap a four-game losing streak.
Philadelphia missed its first 14 shots of the game and trailed by as many as 25 points before beginning its comeback. Louis Williams scored all 19 of his points in the second half, and Andre Iguodala had a team-high 22 points for the 76ers, who scored 65 points in the second half.
Scoring has been a problem so far for Philadelphia, which is averaging just 89.1 points per game. Injuries to forwards Kyle Korver (groin strain) and Jason Smith (sprained ankle) have compounded the problem, but the rally against Portland has given the team some hope.
From what we see in here , Was looks very determinated to win and to get back for a good place in their division , and Philly is struggling and , the most important thing , is not scoring very well . The 76’ers always had a slow start of the game , but they managed to comeback late in the 4th quarter .
The Wizards have won three straight meetings with the 76ers overall, and haven’t lost at home to Philadelphia since April 9, 2005.
