Philadelphia 76ers 's Latest Performance :
The Sixers played a much better game second time around with Butler as they were able to take down the Jazz. Emiid was better with his shot selection in this game as he will learn as the season progress that the Sixers now have another closer on the team in Jimmy Butler. The Sixers will have to better with their time management and make sure they don’t overplay the starters way too much because they might not be able to perform when comes crunch time. The Sixers have all the pieces that make them contenders in the East. It is good to see that a team that was rebuilding for years is one of the forefronts of the Eastern Conference. It goes to show that patience plays a big part when rebuilding a team from the ground up. Playing against the Hornets the Sixers will have to find a way to contain Kemba.
Charlotte Hornets's Latest Performance :
The Hornets will be looking to bounce back after losing to the Cavs it was a game that the Hornets should have won. Things were so bad for Charlotte that Kemba Walker, who had missed his first 5 shots and was scoreless at the time, decided that a 2nd quarter shoe change may be the catalyst to a Hornets run and improved play by him. It didn’t work. The Hornets’ leading scorer finished with 7 points on 2-16 from the floor. Kemba will look to bounce back against the Sixers. He has been on a tear this season with 27.9 points per game prior to Tuesday Charlotte shot 35% from the floor and was 8-41 from behind the arc. Jeremy Lamb chipped in with a season-high 22 points as he was the only bright spot on the Hornets. The Hornets will have to forget their game against the Cavs and focus on this game against the Sixers.

Against The Spread Selection: Philadelphia 76ers
My reason for the pick :
The Sixers will get their second win in a row as they will take down the Bucks on the road. Jimmy Bulter will have his way offensively in his new team while it is going to be hard for the Hornets to come out with a win in this game if they only have Kemba being their only scorer the Sixers have so many options on offense and that will be the difference maker in this game.
