Charlotte Hornets (30-40) at 76ers (38-30)
Monday at 7 p.m., at the Wells Fargo Center
The Sixers will like to duplicate their March 6 performance against the Hornets at the Spectrum Center. The Sixers shot a season-high 57.5 percent from the field, including 16 for 33 (48.5 percent) on three-pointers in a 128-114 victory. They also made 12 of 15 foul shots (80 percent). And the Sixers had 35 assists on 50 made baskets. Their assists total was one shy of their season high, set Nov. 1 against the Atlanta Hawks. Robert Covington, who didn’t attempt a shot in the first quarter, scored 22 points and hit 5 of 9 three-pointers.
Covington also excelled as a two-way player that night. He was the primary defender on Charlotte all-star point guard Kemba Walker, who was held to a season-low five points on 1-for-9 shooting, missing all five of his three-pointers.
