What to Know

The 76ers will be playing the full four quarters on Saturday, but they’re expected to have things wrapped up well before that. Having just played yesterday, they will head out on the road to face off against the Charlotte Hornets at 7:00 p.m. ET on January 20th at Spectrum Center. Both teams come into the match bolstered by wins in their previous matches.

The 76ers entered their tilt with the Magic with three consecutive wins but they’ll enter their next game with four. Philadelphia enjoyed a cozy 124-109 victory over Orlando on Friday.

The 76ers can attribute much of their success to Tyrese Maxey, who scored 32 points along with five assists and three steals, and Joel Embiid, who scored 36 points along with seven rebounds and four steals. The contest was Embiid’s 19th in a row with at least 30 points.

Meanwhile, the Hornets had to suffer through a six-game losing streak, but that streak is no more. They snuck past San Antonio with a 124-120 victory on Friday. The win was just what the Hornets needed coming off of a 132-112 defeat in their prior contest.

Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead the Hornets to victory, but perhaps none more so than LaMelo Ball, who scored 28 points along with eight assists and three steals. Another player making a difference was Brandon Miller, who scored 24 points along with nine rebounds.
