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.
