The Washington Wizards hosted the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. We also saw a brief Twitter battle, which hilariously involved the NFL teams of each city.
The Wizards handily defeated the 76ers. As the game was nearing its end, the Philadelphia fans in attendance began chanting for the Philadelphia Eagles, who are preparing for a Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints.

This prompted the Wizards to ask the 76ers a rather simple question on Twitter.
@sixers your fans know this isn't an eagles game right
— Washington Wizards (@WashWizards) January 10, 2019
That’s a fair inquiry. It’s safe to say that whoever runs Philadelphia’s Twitter page was prepared to handle such a question.
certainly isn't a redskins game

We love good social media banter between opposing teams. This was definitely good banter.
As far as who won this exchange, we’re awarding the 76ers with a rather decisive victory. Given what happened on the court, they can take some comfort in getting at least one win on Wednesday.
