Here's a link to the schedule on Sixers.com.

  • Two national games (I don't count NBA TV as national), one vs. the Clippers and one vs. Detroit, both in December. That's just shameful.
  • The Sixers have 20 back-to-backs, 5 of which include the second game at home (which I consider to be a handicap in the overall schedule. Here's the month-by-month breakdown of the back-to-backs.
    • October: 1
    • November: 5
    • December: 2
    • January: 2
    • February: 4
    • March: 4
    • April: 2
  • The Bulls, who finished with an identical record to the Sixers last season and lost their leading scorer this summer, have 14 national games. Not including NBA TV games.
  • The Knicks, with their dazzling roster and the addition of Darko have 5 national games.
  • The mighty Clippers have 8 national games.
  • The Wizards have 8 national games.
  • Last season, the Sixers had 20 back-to-backs, of them the second game was at home.
  • Back-to-backs for other notable teams:
    • Boston - 18 (6 w/ 2nd at home)
    • Cleveland - 18 (7 w/ 2nd at home)
    • Lakers - 20 (2 w/ 2nd at home)
    • Orlando - 20 (6 w/ 2nd at home)
  • Again, the Sixers finish their season on a grueling stretch. 24 games over the final 44 days of the season.
  • The Ice Capades road trip doesn't seem too bad this season. Only 1 back-to-back on the trip which consists of games at Washington, Utah, Portland, Sacramento, LA Clippers and Denver. Should be a .500 trip, at worst.
  • 10-8 would be a good record for the Sixers at the end of November. Rough opening month.
