Nicolas Batum took advantage of playing Philly to pick up his second triple-double of the season with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists. Leading the Charlotte Hornets closer to clinching a playoff spot.
“Right now we’re just preparing ourselves to be ready for (the playoffs),” Batum said. “We don’t play just to get into the playoffs. We’re trying to get ready to be effective in the playoffs and don’t just do one-and-done.”
