The 76ers fans came to celebrate Allen Iverson's No. 3. Trevor Ariza left them talkin' about 40. Ariza made eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 40 points to help the Wizards win their sixth straight game, 122-103 over Philadelphia on Saturday night.
John Wall scored 24 points on a career-best five 3-pointers, Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and the Washington Wizards beat the Philadelphia 76ers 116-102.
The rebuilding, supposed-to-be-really-bad Philadelphia 76ers are 2-0, having followed their stunner over the Miami Heat with a win that left the Washington Wizards' fans booing and their coach already questioning the players' commitment.
John Wall scored 24 points for the Wizards, who have lost four straight and trail the 76ers by 3½ games with two to play in the race - if it can really be called that - for top non-playoff team in the Eastern Conference.
