Carroll on Game 2:
We knew this was a game we had to win. It was kind of a funky game.
Bazenmore on Wizards:
It’s dangerous, man. Oh, their best player is not playing, so they don’t have a chance. But they still have a very dangerous team.
Sessions on team:
Just try to push the team, just like John does. It wasn’t just me. Everybody tried to step up.
Wizards win 119-90. Beal scores 21 points, Sessions scores 19 points, and Gortat scores 18 points, seven rebounds and six assists. For the 76ers, Covington scores 27 points and Richardson scores 16. Coach Wittman:
I thought our guys were tremendous. We shot lights out. But we got some really good looks because of our ball movement.
This shows how deep we are as a team. We definitely want our guys healthy come playoff time, and sharp as well. I think we’re doing a great job of that.
We started the game so poorly. We subbed our first group out quickly trying to find some life, but I thought the first half defensively was just poor.
