Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards will play again today, June 2, at 7:00 pm (ET) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia for the first round of the 2020/21 NBA playoffs. Here, you'll find all the match information, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game.
The Philadelphia 76ers missed a chance to close out the series and sweep the Washington Wizards on the road, mostly because Ben Simmons got into foul trouble and Joel Embiid had to leave early with a knee injury.
Now, the Washington Wizards will look to ride that momentum as they visit the City of Brotherly Love for a must-win Game 5, which will be easier said than done given the Sixers' dominance at home.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Washington Wizards: Storylines
The Philadelphia 76ers lost just 7 games at home this season, so that clearly doesn't favor the Washington Wizards' case for Game 5. However, they're just not the same team without Joel Embiid, and there's a big chance the big man can't suit up for this potential series-clinching matchup.
Scott Brooks' team jumped to a big lead in the second half of Game 4 before rookie guard Tyrese Maxey took the Sixers' offense to a whole new level, but they could still manage to execute down the stretch and get a win, also thanks to their 'Hack-A-Simmons' strategy. Ben Simmons is shooting under 25% from the free-throw line in this series so we may see them intentionally foul him again in Game 5.
