Here are three storylines to watch for in tonight's game.

Defending the three

In the first quarter of Tuesday night's game, head coach Brett Brown took a timeout to remind his players about one of their biggest focuses at Monday's practice, defending the three. It's an area that Brown says he'll be looking to improve over the next four games and an area that they did a solid job on in the second quarter when they outscored Washington 36-16.

Will the streak come to an end?

The Wizards have an eight-game winning streak at home against the Sixers, their longest against any opponent. The Sixers have not won a game in Washington, D.C. since Nov. 1, 2013. Is tonight the night?

Ball movement

Not only did the Sixers finish with a season-high 39 assists last night, but every single Sixer who entered the game also recorded an assist. It's the stat that Brown was most proud of, and it makes sense. The Sixers' 65.9 assist percentage is the highest in the league.
