76ers vs. Hornets final score: Philly wins an ugly one, 77-62

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The Sixers hold New Orleans to 33.3 percent shooting from the field for the game.

It may not have been a very high-scoring game, but the Philadelphia 76ers didn't mind. They won a defensive struggle over the New Orleans Hornets, 77-62.

Philadelphia's defense was in top gear on Wednesday night. The Hornets failed to score 20 points in any quarter and shot just 33.3 percent from the field for the game.

In a poor offensive game for almost everyone on the floor, Jrue Holiday was stellar. He finished with 14 points and 12 assists on the evening. Evan Turner also had 14 points for the 76ers.

Only one Hornets player could muster double-figures in scoring, and he barely did. Al-Farouq Aminu finished with a team-high 10 points despite shooting 3-for-11 from the field. He did have 16 rebounds from the many missed shots in the game.

The 76ers, who are now 2-2 on the season, are back in action on Friday when they face the Boston Celtics.
