The 76ers have officially announced the team’s 2018-2019 82 game regular season schedule as the team looks to get back to the playoffs for a second consecutive season.
Philadelphia opens the year where it finished a season ago, at the TD Garden in Boston for a primetime matchup with the Celtics on Tuesday, October 18. This game will be the first of 11 in the league’s Kia NBA Tip Off Series 2018. In total, the 76ers will play on national television 27 times this season, 13 more than last year.
Two days after opening night, Thursday, October 18, the 76ers will take the floor at the Wells Fargo Center for their home opener when they battle the Chicago Bulls. That game will tip off at 8 p.m. The regular season will conclude with the Bulls making one final stop at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday, April 10.
Among the 76ers’ notable, national opponents are those same Boston Celtics on Christmas Day and the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors, who come to Philadelphia in early March. The Celtics and 76ers will tip off at 5:30 p.m. from the Garden this Christmas. MVP James Harden will ead the Houston Rockets in Philadelphia for a primetime showdown on Martin Luther King Day, and Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers will be in town on February 10.
In total, the bulk of the schedule will be played between November and March, with just 14 combined games being played in October and April.
As always, you can catch all the action, from opening tip to the final buzzer, on 97.5 The Fanatic!
