The Philadelphia 76ers have picked a good time to try to register a season-best fourth consecutive victory. Having two straight games against the NBA's worst team has helped give them that opportunity.
With time running out on its quest to reach the playoffs for the third straight season, visiting Philadelphia tries to defeat the Charlotte Bobcats for the second time in four days Wednesday night.
The 76ers (30-43) are six games behind Milwaukee for the eighth and final postseason berth in the Eastern Conference, and both teams have nine contests remaining.
While the odds are not in Philadelphia's favor, it enters this matchup with the lowly Bobcats (17-57) with four victories in five games. The 76ers have held opponents to an average of 90.3 points during the three-game win streak, which includes a 100-92 home victory over Charlotte on Saturday.

As if Sixer fans needed another reason to dislike highly-paid hair model Andrew Bynum, a report has surfaced that says he plans to show no loyalty to the team that just paid him $16 million for literally nothing.From The Inquirer's John Mitchell:"A team source with knowledge of the situation said last week that he does not believe that Bynum will give the Sixers any special...
