Charlotte +5 over PHILADELPHIA

7:10 PM EST. “Sticking with it” is something that we preach in this space and tonight that mantra comes in two parts. First up, we have the 76ers back in our sights. We faded Philadelphia in Houston for a number of reasons on Monday night and for those reasons, we are coming right back here. One of those reasons was that the Sixers have been traveling all over North America with a particularly brutal stretch that has seen them play at Toronto, at Brooklyn, home to Houston, at Orlando, home to San Antonio and then on the road again at Houston (in that order). Now, the 76ers are back in Philly. The Sixers have won seven straight, covered in six of those seven, including that 111-91 win in H-Town to start the week. Now, they are spotting a pretty hefty pile of points to a pretty damn good team. With the Celtics coming into town on Saturday night, the potential for another lookahead is not out of the question. It’s not like the 76ers were great in Houston either, the Rockets were just the Rockets and couldn’t do their part. The Hornets are not the Rockets.

Charlotte does not have the pedigree of Philly or most of the other “bigs” in the East, but that does not mean it should be overlooked. The Hornets have quietly put together a nice three-game winning streak of their own, most notably back-to-back home victories over the Bucks. Milwaukee was not and has not been at full strength, so it is going to be easy to write those wins off. A 140-111 drubbing of Detroit isn’t going to turn heads either, but that’s ok, too. On most nights these Hornets are chomping at the bit to get on the court. They took care of business against the Bucks that showed up and we’re not going to discount that. Now, Charlotte has the chance to punch up again against the 76ers and this seemingly small price to pay on the 76ers at home is enticing enough to the unsuspecting for us to strongly look at the other side. We like what we see.
