Game Info: 8:00 pm ET at the Wells Fargo Center, airing on CSN
The Philadelphia 76ers welcome the Charlotte Bobcats to the Wells Fargo Center, in desperate need of a win after coming off a horrible and ugly loss to the Indiana Pacers. The Sixers have to take advantage and get the win against a weaker opponent like the Bobcats, as they are 11-38. The 76ers are 21-27, in the hunt for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Sixers will be without Jason Richardson and Thaddeus Young in this game, due to injuries. J-Rich will undergo season-ending surgery, while Thad will be out approximately 3 weeks with a Grade 1 hamstring strain. It will definitely be a struggle for this team to get some wins without these key pieces, so at this point, everyone must step up.
For Philadelphia to win this ball game, they must take smart, efficient shots, rebound, and step up.
This is a game they must win.
