76ers vs Charlotte Hornets
While it may seem like the Hornets have been around forever, they only just joined the league prior to the 1988-89 season. It wasn’t long before they’d introduce themselves to the 76ers either, as they traveled to Philadelphia for just the 11th game of their short existence. Since that time, the regular season contests have been mostly even, as Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson did battle with Charles Barkley in the early ‘90s, and in 2000, when the Allen Iverson-led Sixers bested the Baron Davis and the Hornets in the only playoff series between these two franchises, winning in the first round 3 games to 1. Iverson recorded a playoff high 55 points in that first round contest.
Since then, the Hornets have become the Bobcats and gone back to being the Hornets once again. All-Stars like Gerald Wallace and Kemba Walker suited up for Charlotte before the team drafted point guard LaMelo Ball in 2020. The 76ers and Hornets play back-to-back games in North Carolina in early December this season, and then two games at the Center later in the year. Don’t miss your chance to see this exciting matchup!
The Sixers took down the Hornets in Charlotte on February 3, 2021, 118-111. Philadelphia was led by double-figure contributions from Joel Embiid (34), Tobias Harris (26), Danny Green (16), Ben Simmons (15), and Shake Milton (15) off the bench. The win marked the 14th straight for the 76ers over the Hornets, as the team takes that streak into the 2021-22 regular season.
