Analysis
NBA Wednesday 10* Top Play OVER 214.5 in Charlotte Hornets vs Philadelphia 76ers @ 7:10 ET - What is Philly's solution without Embiid? How about run and gun and attempt nearly 100 shots from the field? That is what they did last night in their upset of Brooklyn. Keep in mind they got Harris back last night and he led them with 24 points. Additionally they got Korkmaz back and he came off the bench and combined with Reed and Naing for 44 points between the 3 of them. Charlotte is simply not a very good team and this is true on defense as well. The Hornets have lost 11 of 12 games and, not including OT points of course, Charlotte has allowed 111.4 ppg last 12 games. They are favored by 4 points here. So you can see that the predicted final could fall somewhere into the 115 to 111 range which gives a total double digits above the posted number on this game. I like our chances for a high-scoring game because Sixers play a more "small ball" style when Embiid is not on the floor. The 5 games Embiid has missed this season, the 76ers have scored an average of 112 points per game. This one should get into the 220 to 225 range considering all of the above. Hornets so hungry for a win and Sixers hungry to prove they can win without Embiid and Harden, just as they did last night. The also are missing Maxey right now but the backcourt of Milton and Melton showed yesterday that they can mesh very well. 10* OVER 214.5 in Charlotte
