The Wizards appear to have a heart-stopping formula to beat the Sizers. Just as they did in their first meeting at the Verizon Center, Washington got three points in the waning seconds to tie the game and send it to overtime. Instead of a dramatic Cartier Martin three-pointer, it was John Wall sinking three free throws that tied it.
Nick Young hit a three from the corner with 7.6 seconds left to give the Wizards a 116-114 victory. On the Sixers' last possession, Andre Iguodala missed a runner with seconds to spare, but the ensuing scramble for the rebound on the floor killed the rest of the clock.
The win marks the fifth straight for the Wizards over the Sixers. John Wall led all scorers with 25 points. JaVale McGee had an excellent outing, finishing with 24 points and 18 boards.
