Series history(since original Hornets first season in 1988-89): CHA leads series 51-39

Two of what may be the worst teams in the NBA this season so far will be in action tonight in Philadelphia, as the Charlotte Hornets pay a visit to take on the 76ers.  Charlotte is in a midst of a 4-game losing streak, as they try to establish a identity that has been some what of a crisis for the 6-19 Hornets this season, while the 76ers on the other hand, are indeed struggling big time, with that long losing streak to begin the season before breaking through in Minnesota.

Scouting the Hornets

The first few months of the 2014-15 season for the Charlotte Hornets have been somewhat not successful, as the team hasn't been playing together as a team, and of course, losing big leads and failing to finish up games which they were suppose to win, and many fans are calling for Steve Clifford to be fired as he is more likely on the "Hot Seat", while rumors are also circulating about the future of Lance Stephenson, who Charlotte signed this past off-season.  Charlotte is trying to avoid even bigger humiliation tonight as they look to end their 4-game slide in Philadelphia against one of the worst teams in all of the NBA this season, the 76ers, before they come back home tomorrow night to take on the Utah Jazz.

Scouting the 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are once again in the process of building for the future, and their long losing streak to start the season was the story of the 2014-15 edition of the Sixers so far this season.  Philadelphia only has 2 wins on the year so far, but with the talent on the floor so far, the Sixers have already begun looking ahead to the 2015-16 season.  The 76ers hope that they can give the fans something to cheer tonight as the Sixers welcome in the Charlotte Hornets to the Wells Fargo Center.
