Sixers Twitter goes crazy over Wizards' fans 'We want Philly!' chants originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
The Wizards reward? A first-round series date with the Philadelphia 76ers, the top seed in the East.
With the Wizards up handily in the second half on Thursday against Indiana, fans in Capital One Arena already began looking forward to the team's next opponent.
"We want Philly! We want Philly!" echoed off the walls in Capital One Arena.
Naturally, Sixers fans on Twitter did not take too kindly to it.
The Wizards and 76ers met three times during the regular season, with Philadelphia coming out victorious each time.
However, the two clubs haven't faced one another since March 12. Washington is an entirely different team, having won 16 of their last 22 games to close out the season. Russell Westbrook has been playing some of the best basketball of his career, while trade deadline acquisition Daniel Gafford has been exceptional since his arrival. And, of course, Bradley Beal continues to do Bradley Beal things.
Plus, Westbrook vs. Joel Embiid -- one of the league's most forgotten epic rivalries over the past few seasons -- happens for the first time in the postseason.
Buckle up, Wizards fans.
