Similar 76ers beat Wizards 103-78 in exhibition

WASHINGTON (AP) -- With new 76ers owner Josh Harris sitting behind a baseline, Lou Williams scored 19 points and Philadelphia beat the cold-shooting and light-defending Washington Wizards 103-78 on Friday night before a sparse crowd in the first of two post-lockout exhibition games between the teams.

Relying on the core that led them to last season's playoffs, the 76ers shot 51 percent. It was their first game since Harris' group completed its purchase in October.

The Wizards unveiled their new red-white-and-blue uniforms, "dc" logo and three draft picks - but looked very much like a young team coming off a 23-win season.

They had trouble at both ends of the court, making 33 percent of their shots - which could hasten the return of free-agent Nick Young. John Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, scored eight points on 3-for-12 shooting. Andray Blatche had 18 points.

The announced attendance was 11,419. The arena's capacity is more than 20,000.
