  • The games marked in red are probably TNT national games. No way to tell which games will be televised on ESPN or ABC at this point. Only 4 TNT games is disappointing, though.
  • Bah Humbug! - Check out the road trip the Sixers are on from December 23rd through January 3rd. @ Boston, @ Denver, @ Utah, @ LAC, @ Dallas, @ San Antonio
  • Home Cooking - 7-game home stand in late January, with some cupcakes coming to town.
  • Back-To-Backs - The Sixers have 17 back-to-backs on their schedule. Here's the breakdown of where the games will be played. My contention has always been that a back-to-back with the first game away, the second game home is a distinct disadvantage, and basically negates a team's home-court advantage.
    • Away/Home - 8
    • Away/Away - 4
    • Home/Away - 3
    • Home/Home - 2
  • First Game vs. Boston, Nov. 28th
  • First Game vs. Lakers, Dec. 3rd, at home. 2nd night of back-to-back.
  • Easy Start - 10 of the Sixers first 17 games are against non-playoff teams. They should head into December with a head of steam
  • Tough Finish - The final three games are @ Toronto, then a back-to-back at home against the Celtics and on the road against the Cavs. Could be murder, or could be a cakewalk, depending on seeding.
  • Game I Have To Get Tickets To - Tuesday, Feb. 3. Boston in Philly. I'm hoping these teams will be battling for the Atlantic at that point.
