To recover from their loss on Friday night, Charlotte Hornets took the Philadelphia Chief to 76.
The Charlotte Hornets have had two spectacular victories in their last two matches, but were unable to come out on top with a win over a weakened Memphis Grizzlies. The Hornets hope to get back on track against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Hornets played poorly on most levels in their previous game, and such a game would not win 76 series. Charlotte can’t shoot less than 40% and can’t make multiple turnovers if she wants to beat the 76ers.
The 76ers are a good team with plenty of weapons at their disposal. The Hornets want to figure out how to defend against Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, and Joel Embiid.

Things to see:
It will be interesting to see if coach Borrego makes any changes to the team’s starting lineup. The Hornets’ opening backcourt played poorly in their last game, and Devante Graham averaged just 6 points from his two games.
The Hornets will need to take a shot against 76 Cers, so the team must return to Memphis from their poor loss. The Hornets have already beaten two good teams, so the Hornets are expected underdogs so this will be a game to watch.
Hornets Simmons, Harris should limit scoring and start early. These players may be allowed to injure the Hornets and play from behind to get their numbers.
If it is not stressed enough, the Hornets will have to take shots in this game. The 76ers can score very well, so missing ten shots in a row is not ideal if the Hornets continue.
Finally, Charlotte should take good care of the basketball. The Hornets did 18 turnovers in their previous game, which is unacceptable. If the Hornets can manage these goals, they should have a good chance on the road.
