The 76ers travel to Charlotte tonight to take on the NBA's worst team.
Philadelphia has been one of the surprise teams this year in the NBA. Charlotte most certainly hasn't.
The 76ers are fresh off of a 99-84 hammering of Cleveland. Jrue Holiday led the way with 20 points while Lou Williams added 19 points and five assists. That win kicked off a stretch of seven out of the next eight games being away from the Wells Fargo Center.
It was a much-needed victory after dropping consecutive games to San Antonio and the Clippers. It was the first time all year that Philly suffered a losing streak.
The Bobcats on the other hand are one giant losing streak. They're 3-24 with a current slide of 14 straight games. It's not only bad, but brutally ugly. Charlotte ranks dead last in offense and defense.
The 76ers (19-9) can't afford to overlook this game. It should be an easy win against a horrible team but things happen when you aren't focused. The good news is that usually isn't a problem for a Doug Collins team. The only bad loss this campaign came to New Jersey in a 97-90 overtime defeat.
After Monday's tilt, Philly will travel to Orlando to take on Dwight Howard and company.
