WASHINGTON -- Well, thats a confounding sight at the top of the standings. The rebuilding, supposed-to-be-really-bad Philadelphia 76ers are 2-0, having followed their stunner over the Miami Heat with a win that left the Washington Wizards fans booing and their coach already questioning the players commitment. Thaddeus Young scored 29 points, rookie Michael Carter-Williams started cold and finished hot, and John Wall did just the opposite Friday night as the 76ers pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 109-102 victory. "Its only two," first-year 76ers coach Brett Brown said, "but we sure are happy." The 76ers are 2-0 for the first time since 2006-07, and they have done it by pushing the tempo and playing decent defence. They trailed by 12 points in the third quarter, but they shot 65 per cent over the final 12 minutes and finished with a staggering 74 points in the paint. Young scored 10 points in the fourth quarter. Evan Turner scored 23 points, and Spencer Hawes had 16 points and 14 rebounds. Carter-Williams finished 6 for 15 from the field after an 0-for-5 start and had 14 points and five assists. It was an inevitable climb-down from Carter-Williams stellar NBA debut when he had 22 points, 12 assists, nine steals and seven rebounds against the Heat. He overcame some early foul trouble to hit some big shots when the 76ers were making up ground on the Wizards in the third quarter. "How does a young guy respond?" Brown said. "You just keep seeing different ways where he doesnt get fazed by the moment." The Wizards were as embarrassed as they could be. They are 0-2 for the fourth consecutive year, but this season has essentially been labeled as playoffs-or-bust by owner Ted Leonsis. Coach Randy Wittman, in the last season of his contract, answered only two questions at his postgame news conference and took 5 minutes to do so, using language not appropriate for live television. "Commitment to ... playing defence. Thats what it is. ... The thing they havent learned, and I got to figure out a way," Wittman said. "You could see it coming out of the locker room. Youve got to respect the game, your opponent. ... Everything you get is No, were OK. Were not OK. Were 0-2. Were not OK." Wall made his first seven shots and went 3 for 12 the rest of the way. He said he battled back spasms in the second half but should be fine for Sundays game at Miami. Trevor Ariza added 14 rebounds for the Wizards, who played without forward Nene (strained left calf). Marcin Gortat, acquired only a week ago in a trade, had 12 points and seven rebounds in his first start for Washington. Wall looked unstoppable in the first quarter when he reeled off 10 points in a 55-second span, beating his chest with his right fist and shouting at himself after making his second 3-pointer, but the Wizards couldnt hold a lead. Washington led by 12 after the first quarter but failed to get a field goal for nearly 6 minutes in the second. In the third quarter, a 12-point Wizards lead was wiped out in a matter of minutes, and the teams were tied at 74 entering the fourth. Carter-Williams 3-pointer with 6:28 remaining gave the 76ers their first lead of the game. They never trailed again, a team able to play with nothing to lose because everyone expects them to. "We have a lot of confidence in each other," Carter-Williams said. "And not by any means are we going to go out there and play like we dont want to win. Theres a bunch of winners on this team." NOTES: Philadelphia missed its first 10 attempts from 3-point range and finished 6 for 23 for the game. ... The home opener failed to generate much buzz for a Wizards franchise that hasnt been to the playoffs since 2008. Wall addressed the crowd a few minutes before tipoff, saying "Yall are the best fans in the NBA" -- to an arena that was less than half full. The announced attendance was 17,160. ... The Wizards remain without No. 3 overall pick Otto Porter, who has a right hip flexor injury. Adidas John Gibson Jersey .

Kerry, I hope you address Ron MacLeans comment during the second intermission of Game 4 in Montreal-Tampa series. Basically, he suggested that the NHL should not have used a referee from Quebec, following the Game 3 disputed non-goal, because the referee could be biased towards Montreal.Toronto Maple Leafs sniper Phil Kessel wont miss any time this regular season for slashing Buffalo tough guy John Scott. The NHL has suspended Kessel for the final three games of the exhibition season, but the winger will be available when Toronto opens its 2013-14 season against Montreal next Tuesday. As a result of being suspended for only pre-season games, Kessel will also not lose any of his salary. "Hes not going to be able to play anymore, so now hes going to really practice hard," coach Randy Carlyle said after Tuesday nights game against the Ottawa Senators. "So thats an advantage." Kessels clean record and the fact that Scott was not injured determined the suspension, according to NHL vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan, though in the video announcing the suspension, Shanahan pointed to Kessels slashes against Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Luke Schenn in a previous game as prior evidence of similar behaviour. The incident came during Sundays ugly game between the Leafss and Sabres, longtime division rivals.ddddddddddddAfter Buffalos Corey Tropp was injured in a fight with Torontos Jamie Devane, Scott attempted to go after Kessel on the next shift. Kessel slashed Scott twice and gave him a spear and was ejected from the game. "While we acknowledged that Kessels initial motivation was self-defence, he persists and swings his stick again even having escaped the immediate threat from Scott," Shanahan said. The incident sparked a bench-clearing brawl, which resulted in Leafs right-winger David Clarkson being suspended for 10 regular-season games for leaving the bench and Buffalo coach Ron Rolston being fined for "player selection and team conduct." Asked if he thought Kessels three-game, pre-season suspension was fair, Carlyle implied he was done trying to determine such things. "I let the experts make those calls because Ive been fined before for my criticism of what happens at the league, and my wife told me to shut my mouth," he said. ' ' '
