The third quarter was arguably where the Sixers won the game on Monday. Embiid and Belinelli combined for 23 points as the Sixers outscored the Hornets 32-14. Embiid hit three of his four three-pointers and Belinelli hit three of his five treys in the third quarter, but it wasn't just about the offensive efficiency. The Sixers gave up four turnover but didn't allow the Hornets to convert any of the miscues into points on the other end. The Sixers held Charlotte to just 4-of-21 from the field in the 12-minute stretch. The energy on both ends carried over into the fourth quarter, where the Sixers still needed to work to stave off the Hornets, but the momentum had already been built. Embiid finished with a game-high 25 points and 19 rebounds and Belinelli finished with 21 points.
