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