No. 1 Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers came out of the gate in a dominant way and it was clear relatively early that their best player, Joel Embiid, was on a mission.

Embiid put himself in the conversation for the league’s Most Valuable Player with his monstrous offensive performances this season: He is averaging a career-high 28.5 points per game (fourth in the league) and has posted a 30.3 Player Efficiency Rating.

During a 10-game stretch in the middle of the season where Embiid was sidelined with a hyperextended knee, the 76ers went 7-3 and showed they can still compete without their star big man.

Philly has the second-best Defensive Rating in the NBA (107) and have been an outstanding team to bet at home going 28-7 straight up and 21-14 against the spread per Bet Labs. Having home court advantage in the East gives the 76ers their best shot at making the NBA Finals in decades.

No. 8 Washington Wizards

The Wizards completed an absolutely improbable run over the last 20 games and the Play-In tournament to make the NBA Playoffs.

The biggest driving force for the Wizards has been Russell Westbrook, who looks a lot more like the version we remember from his days in Oklahoma City. His all-around game not only got him the all-time triple-double record, but has also re-energized the Wizards’ offense averaging 23.6 points, 13.9 assists and 13.6 rebounds per game.

Bradley Beal has also been a dominant scorer all season and got even better when Washington needed it — he scored 32.2 points per game in his final 17 games. His health will be the top concern after he missed three of Washington’s final four regular games with a hamstring injury.

If the Wizards haven’t completely emptied the gas tank in the run-up to the playoffs, they will be a tough out for the Sixers in Round 1.
