Charlotte won a second straight game by double digits on its home floor as it dispatched Atlanta by a count of 113-102.

Sixers finally win on road
Philadelphia won its first game on the road this season after five previous defeats Wednesday night as it secured a 100-94 victory at Indiana. Joel Embiid paced the 76ers with 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting plus 10 rebounds, three blocked shots and two assists. Dario Saric contributed 18 points, seven rebounds and two assists. Ben Simmons had 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Robert Covington had 13 points, four boards and two steals. Landry Shamet recorded 12 points off the bench. J.J.

NBA Betting Trends
The Hornets are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 Friday games. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings in Philadelphia.
The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings overall. The Sixers are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings.
After looking impressive facing two poor opponents at home, I think the writing is on the wall that Charlotte struggles here on the road against a much tougher opponent that has been dominant at home. I don't see the Hornets having any answers inside for Embiid and I think the Sixers just have too many weapons for Charlotte to keep up.
