The Philadelphia 76ers travel to the Spectrum Center to battle the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday night. Here’s a 76ers vs Hornets Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are starting to heat up again as they are now gunning for a fifth straight victory after routing the Magic in a 124-109 road win last night. Joel Embiid led the team with 36 points on 12 of 22 shooting, Tyrese Maxey added 32 points with five assists while Kelly Oubre Jr chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 48 percent from the field and 13 of 30 from the 3-point line as they poured in 36 points in the second quarter to take the lead into halftime, before they clamped down defensively and held the Magic to just 16 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 22 points. The Sixers will face the Spurs after this game.

Philadelphia 76ers Player Facts

  • Joel Embiid ranks 1st amongst qualified players for points per game (35.1) this season.
  • Tobias Harris ranks 8th amongst qualified players for FT% (90.2%) this season.

Charlotte Hornets

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in poor form, but they will be feeling much better after snapping a six-game slide with a 124-120 win over the Spurs last night. LaMelo Ball led the team with 28 points and eight assists on 10 of 13 shooting, Brandon Miller added 24 points, Miles Bridges added 23 points while PJ Washington chipped in with 20 points. As a team, the Hornets shot 56 percent from the field and 16 of 29 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they squandered a 12-point lead in the third quarter, before they took the game away with a pivotal 10-0 run midway through the fourth quarter. The Hornets will meet the Timberwolves after this one.

Charlotte Hornets Player Facts

  • LaMelo Ball ranks 4th amongst qualified players for three-pointers made Per Game (3.5) this season.
  • Terry Rozier ranks 5th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for assists per game (6.7) this season.

76ers vs Hornets Prediction

The 76ers are still missing Mo Bamba and Robert Covington, but they're starting to heat up again with four wins on the trot and they were dominant in last night's win over the Magic. The Hornets have struggled all season, but they are coming into this one fresh off a rare win after beating the slumping Spurs in their last outing. The Hornets will be feeling better after last night's win, but I don't think those feelings will last as the 76ers have been in great shape and should be too much for the Hornets in this spot.
