For The Sixers A Rough Schedule Could Lead to A Rougher Season.
(Philadelphia, PA)- The NBA released their 2010-11 regular season schedule today. For the Philadelphia 76ers the powers that be were not so nice giving the team one of the hardest roads to the playoffs in years.

The Sixers are looking to improve from their 27-55 record in 2009-10 where they only won 12 games at home and went a terrible 15-26 on the road.

Not only do the Sixers have to begin their season against two returning playoff teams (Miami Oct 27th, Atlanta Oct 29th) they have 11 occasions in their 2010 portion of their schedule where they will play on back-to-back days.

The Sixers will have three extended road trips, two of them in the first half of the season, one of them five games the other eight game to end the year.

After they face Atlanta-Indiana and Washington-Indiana in back-to-back series in a time period of five days they will prepare to hit the road on a five-game road trip that will see them head to New York, O.K City, Dallas, San Antonio and Cleveland.

The Sixers will end their 2010 portion of their schedule on an eight game road stand.

After they face the defending champion L.A. Lakers on Dec. 17th at the Wells Fargo Arena (formerly Wachovia Center) then they hit the road with visits to Orlando (18th), Chicago (21st), Boston (22nd), Denver (26th), Golden State (27th), Phoenix (29th), L.A. Lakers (31st) & New Orleans (Jan 3rd).

As you can see with all this action and back-to-back games the beginning of the 2010-11 season is not looking good for the Sixers chances.

The team only has four occasions where they will play three or more games in a row at home and no home stands more then four games.

The Sixers will get their first look at former center Samuel Dalembert on March 18 as they visit the Sacramento Kings as game four of a five game west coast road trip. Dalembert will make his return to Philadelphia on March 27th in an afternoon 12:00 p.m. game.

Overall the Sixers have 22 occasions where they will play on back-to-back days and only have five nationally televised games on their schedule. They will host he Boston Celtics on December 9th in a game that will be featured on NBA on TNT and have four other game viewable in NBA TV.

Their final game of their eight game road trip on January 3rd in New Orleans will be available on the premium NBA TV channel as well as January 22nd vs. Utah, Monday March 28th at Chicago and April 11th vs Orlando the rest of their games will be available on either Comcast Sports Net (CSN) or The Comcast Network (TCN).
