The top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers are halfway to the second round after winning the first two games in their opening series against the No. 8 Washington Wizards. The 76ers seek their first 3-0 series lead since 1991 when they take on host Washington in Game 3 as the series shifts to D.C. Saturday night. While there is still one quarter left to play, it looks like Philadelphia will be taking a commanding 3-0 lead as they have thoroughly dominated Washington to this point. 

Joel Embiid has enjoyed a strong start to the postseason, averaging 26 points while shooting over 60 percent from the floor and 42.9 percent from 3-point range. The big man has also surpassed the 20-point plateau in each of his past seven playoff games. On the other side, Bradley Beal scored 33 points in each of the first two games. He struggled from beyond the arc (1 of 6) as did the rest of the Wizards (2 of 22) in Wednesday’s loss. Russell Westbrook exited Game 2 with a right ankle sprain but is available for Game 3.
