Saturday, November 17 finds the Philadelphia 76ers meeting up vs. the Charlotte Hornets. Philadelphia arrives having played the night prior vs the Jazz. Although Jimmy Butler lost his debut as a Sixer in Orlando he collected his first win on his new home court in Philly. The Hornets last played on Tuesday losing to the anemic Cavaliers.
Last season, the 76ers swept the season series and took the first two meetings this season. The Hornets hold the all-time record having bested the 76ers in 58 of their 106 matches.
There were pluses and minuses to the debut of Jimmy Butler in a 76ers uniform. Needing to transition into a ball movement heavy offense will take some time for the two-way journeyman.
Butler posted a stat line of 14 points, 2 assists and 4 rebounds and seemingly fit into Philly’s system well.
Other than not handling the ball as much Butler also watched as Joel Embiid was the primary option in clutch time. This is significant as Butler is the most successful of Philly’s big three in clutch time scoring.
Elton Brand is likely still seeking another floor-spacing shooter to pair with J.J. Reddick as the team still seems short of floor spacers.
Justin Patton (multiple right foot surgeries) expected to miss extended time. Zhaire Smith (left foot Jones fracture/thoracoscopy to fix an allergic reaction from a food product ) no timetable for return.
The Hornets lost to the lowly Cavaliers in their last outing and continue to present a stats oddity. For the past several seasons Charlotte boasts a positive differential, but their record seldom reflects that success.
To wit, in the Eastern Conference Charlotte boast the third best differential (+5.1), however, they rank seventh in seeding with two teams (Philly, Detroit) each having a negative differential sitting in front of them.
Charlotte’s offense is humming under new head coach James Borrego ranking fifth league-wide while the sit 15th on defense. In comparison, Philly ranks 19th and 12th respectively.
Kemba Walker leads his squad in scoring (26.4) and assists (6.3) per game.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right ankle sprain) status is out expected out for a third consecutive game.
