PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The 76ers will look to get back on track tonight as they welcome the Charlotte Bobcats to South Philadelphia.

Brett Brown’s squad brings a four-game losing streak into this game, last time out on Saturday they lost 102-92 to the Knicks. Overall on the season, the Sixers are 12-25.

Charlotte is 16-23, they have lost eight of their last ten, but one of the wins during this stretch came Tuesday night as they beat the Knicks at home.

This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season. Charlotte won the first on its home floor back on December 6th, 105-88.

Sixers will be down a big in this one as forward Lavoy Allen is out with a calf injury.

You could see Dewayne Dedmon make his Sixers debut tonight. The seven-footer was signed to a ten-day contract on Tuesday.

KYW’s Matt Leon caught up with Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News to talk about this match-up.
