Honestly, this was a fairly ugly game between a bad team coming off a tough loss while giving their most interesting and arguably best player to watch a night of rest in Joel Embiid. Interestingly for 76ers fans power forward Ersan Ilyasova made his 76er debut, scoring 14 off the bench on 40% shooting. He tied for a team lead in scoring with rookie Dario Saric.
For the Hornets in this one it took a dominating 39-20 third quarter to put this one away. Kemba Walker had 22 points and 7 assists. Recently extended power forward Cody Zeller led all players with a
+\- of 26 in 26 minutes of action.
