Friday, November 9th brings us an exciting Eastern Conference Matchup as the Charlotte Hornets travel north to take on the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Philadelphia. Both of these teams have been off to a good start in the 2018/19 NBA Season.
Both teams are coming off of wins as the Hornets beat the Hawks on Tuesday night, while the Sixers beat the Pacers on Wednesday night. Philadelphia has won 7 out of the last 10 meetings between these two teams.
The Hornets have definitely played better basketball at home this season, having only won two games on the road early in this season. Luckily for them, this is a short two game road trip before they come back home next week to face the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Kemba Walker led all Hornets in scoring with 29 in Tuesday nights win. He also had a team high 7 assists in 36 minutes. Willy Hernangomez pulled in the most rebounds with 9 on the night, he also added 9 points in 16 minutes off the bench. He had the fewest amount of minutes of any Hornets players in that game.
Walker is the teams leading scorer with 28.1 ppg, followed by Malik Monk with 13.4. Strangely, the Hornets two leading rebounders aren’t Hornets big men. Nicolas Batum leads the way with 6.4 rebounds per game, followed by Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with 5.9. This team will have a tough time on the glass against this 76ers team.
One thing the Hornets do hold the edge over the Sixers on is points per game. Charlotte comes in to Friday’s mathcup averaging 115.45 points per game, nearly 5 points more than Philadelphia is averaging. Overall Charlotte is the better shooting team as well at 46.97 FG% and 36.51 three point%.
The Sixers come into this game winners of three of their last four games. This will be the final home game before they depart on a quick one game road trip to Memphis to take on the red hot Grizzlies.
Joel Embiid led the Sixers in scoring in Wednesday nights win over Indiana with 20 points. He also added 10 rebounds in 36 minutes. Ben Simmons was two assists away from a triple-double adding 16 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists in 34 minutes of playing time.
Embiid leads this team offensively averaging 27.7 ppg, followed by JJ Redick with 17.3. Embiid also leads the team in rebounds per game with 12.4. Second year man Makelle Fultz leads the team with 3.6 assists per game.
PG Jerryd Bayless is listed as out indefinitely for the 76ers.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Philadelphia comes into this game with a perfect 6-0 home record. Now I’m not saying they will go 41-0 at the Wells Fargo Center this year, but when you couple that with the Hornets struggles on the road, it clearly spells out another home win for the Sixers.
These teams records show they seem to be closer in talent than they actually are. The Hornets are trying to find their identity, and are relying way too much on Kemba Walker to be the only scoring option. They have talent, they just need to figure out how to utilize it in a better way.
