76ers Vs. Wizards: Philly Goes On 20-8 Run To End First, Up 30-20

This game started out as flat as could be. Neither team could make a basket in the first two minutes. Both teams were only able to get points on the board by shooting free throws. Fortunately they were finally able to get some shots to fall.

For the Wizards, JaVale McGee has been contributing in ways that the box score wont show by altering shots and playing great defense. For the 76ers, Elton Brand has been providing just about all of the offense. Andre Iguodala is also scoring well, but he's getting his points from the free throw line, already having gone 4-4.

John Wall did not enter the game until several minutes into the quarter, and having missed four games, went 0-4 from the field. Without him, Gilbert Arenas and Kirk Hinrich ran the offense, but not too well. Hinrich ended up on the bench after just six minutes with two personal fouls. Oddly enough, he was the only person in the positive for +/-.

Philadelphia ended the quarter on a 20-8 run.
