On Monday, January 4 the Philadelphia 76ers will play host to the Charlotte Hornets in the second consecutive meeting between the teams. The 76ers won the first of these two games 127-112.
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.
Head Coach, James Borrego is getting questioned and under some pressure to make changes specifically to the starting rotation. One issue is Devonte Graham who is 18 for 72 shooting 25% through six games.

Presumably, the thinking is to insert rookie LaMelo Ball. However, through six games Ball is 24 of 57 or 42.1% a definite uptick efficiency-wise but he’s also struggled to score and doesn’t take a lot of shots.
If Borrego made this move the question is how it would affect the reserve unit, not to mention the confidence of Graham who was a player cited as a potential Most Improved candidate last season.
In the loss to the 76ers, Graham scored just five points so the spotlight on the young guard is likely to increase while this narrative continues. As for his teammates, Terry Rozier led the way scoring 35 points while Gordon Hayward offered 20 points, six rebounds, and six assists.
Ball scored 14 as the only other double-figure contributor.
PJ Washington is nursing a bruised thumb making his presence unknown for Monday. 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 sits atop the Eastern Conference with their 5-1 record having only lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers while defeating the Wizards, Knicks, Raptors, Magic, and Hornets.
Doc Rivers has his charges playing well and looking like they’ll have one of the best defensive squads in the association.
In the win over the Hornets, Ben Simmons produced a triple-double of 15 points, 11 assists, and 12 rebounds. Joel Embiid delivered a double-double of 19 points and 14 rebounds.
Tobias Harris led the scoring with 24 points adding six assists and nine rebounds. Seth Curry offered 21 points and Danny Green chipped in 13 points as all five starters reached double-figures. Shake Milton chipped in with 18 points off the bench.
Mike Scott missed the game versus Charlotte with a left knee contusion and will be out again. Furkan Korkmaz groin is out indefinitely.
