It’s a big Eastern Conference showdown on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Charlotte Hornets make the trip north to take on the Philadelphia 76ers.
This will be the first meeting of the year between the two teams this season. The 76ers have won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Charlotte Hornets still have a chance to make the playoffs, but it going to take some near perfect play if want that to happen.
They are currently sitting in the 10th spot, 4.5 games back of the Miami Heat who currently hold the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
For the Hornets, they had been playing some pretty good basketball but took a big step back in their last game. The defense really struggled against the Boston Celtics, and that led to a 134-106 defeat.
For the Hornets the defense hasn’t been a strong suit all year, but for the most part, the offense has made up for their deficiencies.
If they want to win this game the defense is going to need to be good, but the offense is really going to need to click.
If the offense struggles on Friday night, they will have no shot to make up any ground on that 8th seed in the East.
On the other side of this matchup is the Philadelphia 76ers who currently sit in 6th place in the Eastern Conference standings, but they aren’t out of the water by any means in terms of a playoff spot.
They are only four games up on the Pistons who currently sit in the 9th spot, and the first spot out of the playoffs.
The 76ers they come into this game struggling a bit having lost two games in a row against the Washington Wizards and the Miami Heat.
In the last game against the Heat it was a big fourth quarter collapse that led to them losing their second game in a row.
This game has a good chance of being close so for the 76ers they need a couple of things to happen. They need Joel Embiid to stay out of foul trouble so he can stay on the court, and they need to make winning plays down the stretch of the game.
