What you need to know about the Hornets

The Hornets sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 130-127 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. Power forward Miles Bridges continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, picking up 32 points on 73.3 percent shooting to go along with four rebounds, four assists and three steals. Kelly Oubre Jr. chipped in with 28 points.

Charlotte is extremely shorthanded due to health and safety protocols sidelining three starters. LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier and Mason Plumlee will all be out on Monday, along with backup Jalen McDaniels. Thus, the team will have to rely more on Bridges, who is averaging a career-high of 20.4 PPG, along with veteran Gordon Hayward who is putting up 17.3 points with 39.6 shooting on 3PAs.

What you need to know about the 76ers

Speaking of close games: Philadelphia came out on top in a nail-biter against Atlanta this past Friday, sneaking past 98-96. Atlanta led by double-digits in the fourth quarter but was outscored by the Sixers 20-9 in the final frame. It was another big night for Philadelphia’s center Joel Embiid, who dropped a double-double on 28 points and 12 rebounds.

Ben Simmons remains out for the Sixers while Tobias Harris (illness) is listed as questionable. But the catalyst for the Sixers is Embiid as the team is 9-4 when he plays but 3-7 when he doesn’t play. Embiid is averaging 22.5 PPG which is the lowest since his rookie year, but he’s also averaging a career-high of 4.2 assists and shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc.
