WASHINGTON - For the Philadelphia 76ers this season, beating the Washington Wizards has been a little like going to the dentist: Show up, get it over with, move on.
Maybe that's why, in the locker room after last night's 106-98 victory at Verizon Center, it was difficult to tell whether the Sixers had won or lost.
"We got a little sloppy toward the end," guard Willie Green said.
The Sixers, now 28-28, had not won in two weeks. They had lost four in a row and fallen below .500 after boosting their record before the all-star break.
Still, there's little wonder in defeating the Wizards, who are the Eastern Conference's worst team, owners of a 13-44 record....
