January 20, 2014 | Verizon Center, Washington, DC
Despite a late push by Philadelphia that trimmed a 21-point deficit to eight with just over two minutes to play, the Sixers could not accomplish the comeback, falling 107-99 to the Wizards in Washington.
Rookie Michael Carter-Williams scored a game-high 31 points (13-of-22 FG) – the second-highest total of his young career – to go along with six rebounds, five assists, and three steals. Thaddeus Young finished with 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting, and Spencer Hawes added 11 points and a season-high 16 rebounds.
The loss was the Sixers’ third straight and the second of a three-game road trip that concludes Wednesday against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
