Sixers’ win streak snapped by Hornets

You can’t win ‘em all.

The Sixers were done in by a putrid second quarter and their seven-game win streak was snapped in a loss to the Hornets, 109-98, Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers fall to 23-17. They host the Celtics on Friday.

Shake Milton missed his fourth game with a lower back contusion. Ben Simmons (personal reasons) remains out.

Here are more observations from Wednesday’s game.

First quarter

  • Great to see Tyrese Maxey and his patented floater back in the lineup. He scored the Sixers’ first basket on an overaggressive closeout on a corner three.
