Last season, the 76ers swept Charlotte in their four-game series. Rewind two years ago in the 2017-18 season, Philadelphia swept the Hornets in this four-game series on their schedule as well. Therefore, in other words, Charlotte has not won a game versus the Sixers since Nov. 2, 2016, when they defeated them 109-93 at the Spectrum Stadium. They have their number.

Plus, the Sixers had 61 rebounds, 28 assists, 8 steals, 8 blocks, and they scored 32 points in the paint. The Sixers' largest lead of the game was 21 points. Without a doubt, their pitiful forth quarter performance cost them the game. They scored only 13 points, while also allowing the Nuggets to score 35 points.
