On Saturday, January 2nd the Philadelphia 76ers will play host to the Charlotte Hornets in each of their first game since the New Year began,
Last season, the squads played four times with the 76ers sweeping the series. The Hornets hold the all-time record having won 58 of the 109 matches between the squads.
James Borrego’s young squad are a bit confouding. They’ve beaten two teams (Nets, Mavericks) who many preseason predictions suggest should be home court seeds and others think could be headed to either or both the Conference and NBA Finals.
What makes the Hornets’ identity so confusing is their losses came versus lower-ter teams the Cavaliers and Thunder as well as the Ja Morant’less Grizzlies.

In the loss to Memphis the clubs best player was Bismack Biyombo with a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds. Four others delivered double-figure efforts including rookie LaMelo Ball (15), Gordon Hayward (14), Caleb Martin (14), and PJ Washington (10).
Cody Zeller is out until February healing from a broken hand. Grant Riller has missed the season with a knee injury and his return date remains uncertain.
Philly moved atop the East ladder via a resounding thumping of the previously unbeaten Magic. While Doc Rivers team is piling on the victories it should be noted not all of them have come easily.
They fell behind twice by double-digits to the Raptors and needed every one of their 33 free throws (Raptors took 14) and Joel Embiid’s 16 to get the “W”.
In the win over the Magic, Embiid got to the stripe only eight times which helped to augment his 21 points to lead his squad. Seth Curry (21), Tobias Harris (20), Shake Milton (14), and Tyrese Maxey (10) were the other double-figure performers.
With the startng unit capable of spreading the court it’s alloweing Ben Simmons to play the Swiss Army knife role he prefers. Versus the Magic it led to nine points, eight assists, and ten rebounds.
Mike Scott has a left knee contusion but is probable while Furkan Korkmaz groin is out indefiniitely.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The Hornets will need to channel a similar effort to what they delivered against the Nets and Mavericks to usurp the 76ers. And if they’re looking for extra motivation the fact Philly has an 11 game win streak over Charlotte should be all that’s required.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets +9.5
This 76ers squad looks like the real deal although there are a few concerns. Getting consistent scoring from the reserves and Embiid’s health being the most concernng of those. It’s why many still thnk Philly could be in the Harden sweepstakes.
Notably, the first time the Hornets failed to reach 100 points it occurred against the defensively aggressive Grizzlies. The 76res are similar but better given their lenth.
