Recap

The Wizards got their first win of the year in convincing fashion, downing the Sixers in Philly, 116-102. Washington hit a franchise record 18 three pointers in the victory. John Wall led seven Wizards in double figures with 24 points including a career high five three pointers and nine assists. Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 12 boards and Bradley Beal added 17 points and a career high eight assists.

Key Moment

The Wizards had led by double figures for a good portion of this one, but a Sixers run midway through the third quarter, capped by back to back buckets fromTurner and Hawes, cut the Wizards lead to just four. John Wall though drove right down the floor to knock down one of his career high five three pointers and the Sixers would never get that close again.

Player of the Game

This could go to either Marcin Gortat or John Wall who both had very impressive efforts. We'll give it to John Wall though, who hit a career high five three pointers on 5/8 shooting from beyond the arc for 24 points. He also controlled the tempo of the game had a 9-2 assist to turnover ratio.

Key Stat

18. The Wizards hit a franchise record 18 threes, going 18-33 from three point range in the game.

Unsung Hero

Nene did not have a huge stat line, going for 10 points and 5 boards in 29 minutes. But just having him back on the floor after missing two games was huge for the stability of the team on both ends of the floor.
