(AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers are feeling very good about themselves as they finally get ready to play their home opener.
The 76ers will become the final NBA team to play at home Friday night when they take on the Detroit Pistons.
Philadelphia (3-2) capped its season-opening five-game trip with Wednesday’s 101-93 victory over New Orleans. The 76ers outscored the Hornets 34-20 in the fourth quarter.
“Average teams lose (this game), and teams who want to be good, they find a way to win,” coach Doug Collins said. “We got off to a very sluggish start, and we dug ourselves out of it. A terrific win.”
