Fantasy Basketball Money Picks Hornets vs 76ers
Dominate your competion with our NBA Fantasy Basketball Money Picks, create the winning lineup at Fanpicks.com. The Philadelphia 76ers (9-65) play host to the Charlotte Hornets (42-31) at Wells Fargo Center.
The Hornets come into this match-up winning three of their last four and that form is indicative of their second half. Charlotte has been one of the best teams in the NBA since the All-Star break and they miraculously have a shot at reaching the number three-seed in the east. The offense is what’s going for them, as they have rank top-five in scoring since the halfway mark of the season. The defense isn’t too bad either, as they rank ninth in points given as well.
Philadelphia continues their difficult stretch, as they have been defeated 22 of their last 23 games. That’s not indicative of how well they have been performing though, as the last three losses have all been close contests versus solid competition. The injuries are beginning to turn into a nuisance as well, with Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant and Jahlil Okafor all expected to miss this match-up.
With the shape of these teams, look for the 76ers to take it on home soil.
