Matchup History

The Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards have been going at it for years; since long before they were the Wizards or even in Washington DC. First, this Sixers opponent was known as the Chicago Zephyrs, who eventually changed their name to the Packers. Prior to the 1963-64 season, the Chicago Packers moved to Baltimore and renamed themselves the Bullets. Then the Baltimore Bullets moved to Washington, and finally, the Bullets transitioned to become the Wizards.

Regardless of their name, this team has a history with the Philadelphia 76ers that dates back to 1961, when the Sixers had a different name and home city, too – the Syracuse Nationals. Over 312 total regular season games played, the team from the City of Brotherly Love holds a strong advantage over the one in our nation’s capital with a 188-125 record. The 76ers hold the edge in the playoffs, too, with a 17-12 overall record, winning four of the six playoff series between the teams.

Earl Monroe, Wes Unseld, Michael Jordan, and John Wall are just a few of members of this franchise who have gone up against Sixers legends like Billy Cunningham, Julius Erving, Charles Barkley, and Allen Iverson. These days, the matchup is headlined by high-scoring guard Bradley Beal.

This series was split in the 2022-23 NBA regular season, with each team claiming two wins, and the Sixers taking their last meeting in March convincingly, 112-93. In their matchup on November 2, 2022, Tyrese Maxey recorded his 2,000 NBA career point.

The Sixers won all four games against the Wizards during the 2023-24 season. Their first matchup on November 6 at home resulted in a commanding 146-128 Sixers win. In their second matchup of the season on December 6 in Washington, NBA MVP Joel Embiid dropped a 50 point performance, his first of the season. The Sixers followed up in similar fashion on December 11 in South Philadelphia, with a blow out win 146-101. Their final matchup on February 10 resulted in a 119-113 win for the 76ers.
