    Embiid better be ready to run. Wizards have the fastest pace in the league by far.

    This is the first time since the All Star break that they've had two days off between games. They had to make up 6 games that were postponed due to covid.

    Russ should be back to his normal self now. Seems like he was dragging a bit recently. Hopefully Beals hamstring holds up.

    Lopez, Len and Gafford will need to take it to an extra gear if they want to win this game. Make Embiid work for his points.

    The wizards have been a different team the last few weeks. They were 17-32 on April 5. They were 15-6 the rest of the way with their last 5 losses coming down to the wire.

    The first play in game they were clearly worn out.

    Never seen a wizards team that played with so much intensity night in night out. Not expecting them to win the series but I do expect them to win a game or two.

    A lot depends on Beals health obviously.

    I wanted the Celtics, but going up against Westbrook in a playoffs series is gonna be excited.

    No love lost between him and Embiid or the Philadelphia fans.

    My biggest pet peeve with the wizards is the mini me 3 guard lineup. Gives me a headache.
