Six players scored in double-figures for the Philadelphia 76ers, as they rallied from a halftime deficit Sunday to beat the visiting Charlotte Hornets, 114-106. Philadelphia returned home to Wells Fargo Arena for the first time since Oct. 30, sputtering on a three-game losing streak to end its four-game Western Conference road swing. A sluggish second quarter against the Hornets suggested the 76ers' skid might continue.

Charlotte outscored Philadelphia in the second, 34-20. Center Cody Zeller scored 14 of his game-high 24 in the period, while reserve guard and season-long Hornets leading scorer Devonte' Graham provided his usual spark off the bench and finished with 19 points and a game-high 10 assists. The 76ers regrouped with a 35-23 third quarter, and the Philadelphia lead swelled to as much as 19 points in the fourth. Tobias Harris, one of the 76ers scoring in double-figures, came alive in that stretch. He finished with 14 points.

Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown, tinkering with the backcourt rotation while star Ben Simmons is out with a shoulder injury, used a rotation of Josh Richardson, Trey Burke and Furkan Korkmaz. Richardson scored 11 points, getting the start and finishing plus-20 in 32 minutes, while Burke and Korkmaz scored 12 and 17, respectively, off the bench. Charlotte responded with a flurry in the game's final minutes, outscoring the 76ers 17-6 down the stretch, though the Hornets could get no closer than five points. P.J. Washington knocked down two of his three 3-pointers in that run and finished with 15 points.

The Hornets also got 15 points off the bench from Malik Monk. Monk also led Charlotte with eight rebounds on a night the Hornets were battered on the glass. Philadelphia controlled the boards with 49 rebounds to Charlotte's 31. Joel Embiid's nine set the pace. He also scored a team-high 18 points.

Al Horford, Harris and Richardson each pulled down seven rebounds.
