Free NBA Pick: Charlotte Hornets Vs Philadelphia 76ers.

They have played 105 matches against each other in the regular season, and the Hornets have 58 wins to their name, while the 76ers have 48 wins.

Charlotte Hornets: The Hornets have won 4 of their last 6 games, on paper that sounds great, but the truth is they have not seemed totally sure of themselves in any of the games they have won so far. And, even more importantly, the Hornets have lost 3 straight road games. The augurs don’t really seem great for the Hornets, as they take on the 76ers, away from on Friday.  The Hornets did win their last match against the Atlanta Hawks by 113 to 102. An encounter, in which they scored 48.9% of the field goals and earned 41.9% of the 3-points. Kemba Walker led the Hornets with 29 points and seven assists in the win. Apart from Walker, others like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams, Cody Zeller, Miles Bridges, Willy Hernangomez and Tony Parker will have to play out of their skins in order to preserve their winning momentum. Malik Monk puts up 13.4 points per game while Jeremy Lamb contributes 12 points a night while Nicolas Batum chips in 10.5 points plus 6.4 boards a game so far this season.

The offensive game that the Hornets have have put up so far in the tournament has been above average, but it still need proofing from some other angles. They are ranking 9th in the league with 115.5 points per game. Charlotte is 15th in rebounding with 44.9 boards per game and tied for 8th by dishing out 25.3 assists per contest. The Hornets come in ranked 7th in scoring defense by allowing 107.5 points per game.

Philadelphia 76ers:  The 76ers have been a force to reckon with at home and they will be looking to win their 7 tie at home against the Hornets. They also won their last away encounter against the Indiana Pacers 100 to 94. The 76ers scored 45.6% of the field goals and earned 31.2 % of the 3-Points against the Pacers.  Joel Embiid had 20 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks to lead the 76ers. Regardless to say, they will be riding high on confidence.

The 76ers enter this game 14th in scoring offense with an average of 110.7 points per game in the early going. Philadelphia is 5th in rebounding with 49.1 boards per game and stands 5th in assists with 25.7 per contest. The 76ers are 20th in scoring defense by allowing an average of 111.3 points per game so far.  But to be able to maintain their winning run, Ben Simmons is averaging 14.1 points, 9.4 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game while Robert Covington (11.7 points) and JJ Redick (17.3 points) are averaging in double figures. Dario Saric (10.5 points, 6.4 rebounds), Amir Johnson, Markelle Fultz, Landry Shamet and T.J. McConnell all have to be playing top notch. Wilson Chandler’s return to the team, after recovering from his hamstring injury, definitely adds strength to the roster.

Free NBA Pick: Philadelphia 76ers Vs Charlotte Hornets.

The 76ers have been in top form at home and this is not likely to change against the Hornets. Though the Hornets have had a better record against the 76ers in the past, the 76ers have won all of their last seven meetings. This will also include their win against the Hornets in October, earlier this very year. All this coupled with the fact that the Hornets have not really fared well in their away games this season will give the 76ers a definite edge.
