Although the Sixers and the Hornets’ history against one another displays a tight record in favor of Charlotte, the Sixers have found a lot of success over the Hornets over the years.

To start the Doc Rivers era in Philadelphia, the Sixers swept the Hornets during the 2020-2021 season with three victories. After the February 2021 matchup, the Sixers picked up their 14th-straight win over Charlotte, keeping up their five-year win streak.

The trend continued last season. When the Sixers and the Hornets met in back-to-back games in December, the Sixers won both matchups, making it 16-straight. However, in January, Charlotte snapped the streak by defeating the Sixers 109-98.

Although the Hornets stopped a long run of losses against Philadelphia, the Sixers closed out the regular season series with a dominant 144-114 victory in April. Now, the two teams will see each other for the first time in October for a preseason battle ahead of the 2022-2023 season.
