The Wizards are ready to take on the Philadelphia 76ers and will have DeShawn Stevenson back in uniform and coming off the bench.



Darius Songaila will make his second straight start at center, and will have the charge of limiting the athletic Samuel Dalembert, who although he isn’t much of a scorer (5.8 ppg), he does a decent job on the boards (8.5 rpg), and with Songaila not being the most vertically gifted, Dalembert could present a challenge.


Otherwise, the Wizards will have the same starting lineup: Butler and James in the backcourt, and McGuire and Jamison up front with Songaila.


The Sixers will start Andre Igudala and Thaddeus Young at forward and Willie Green and Andre Miller at guard. Ed Tapscott will charge McGuire will guarding Miller and James with watching Green. Jamison will guard Iguodala and Butler will be stuck on Young.
