Sixers to face Celtics and Pacers in a pair of presason games

NBA: FEB 03 Spurs at Clippers
LOS ANGELES, CA – FEBRUARY 03: LA Clippers head coach Doc Rivers yells during the NBA regular season basketball game against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.

The NBA released its preseason schedule today ahead of the upcoming season that’s set for tip off on Tuesday December 22nd. While the different-looking season will feature 72 games for each team, the preseason will only have a minimum of two and a maximum of four.

The Sixers will play in a pair of preseason games before their season gets underway:

Vs Boston 15th December 7PM
@ Indiana 18th December @ 6PM

Without a Summer League to acclimatize their newly acquired talent, the Sixers will have little time to get back up to speed, but will face a pair of tricky opponents in hopes of doing so. Doc Rivers won’t have long with his new team before the games come thick and fast, so these games will be valuable

The national television schedule for these games will be announced at a later date, with the regular season schedule being released in two seegments. The fixture list for the first half of the season will be released in the coming days.
