The Philadelphia 76ers are BACK in the playoffs and have locked up the 3 seed. The team will take on the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Nets will be without Ben Simmons who doesnt want to play basketball is dealing with another injury. The rest of the makeshift roster is led by former Villanova standout, and Sixers draft pick Mikal Bridges. Even with Bridges elevating his play since coming over in the Kevin Durant deal, the team didnt see a ton of wins in the column.

Hopefully the Sixers can wrap this up in 4 games, but just in case, here is the schedule for the first round series!

  • Game 1: Saturday at 1pm in Philadelphia

    Game 1 starts this SATURDAY for some day basketball!It will be broadcasted live on ESPN

  • Game 2: Monday at 7:30pm in Philadelphia

    After the Sixers take a 1 game lead (I hope) theyll have one day off before game 2 tips off at 7:30 on TNT.

  • Game 3: Thursday at 7:30 in Brooklyn

    The Sixers will then head up to Brooklyn for game 3, and get 2 days off in between games. The game will be on TNT

  • Game 4: Saturday at 1pm in Brooklyn

    Could the Sixers close it out in game 4? We hope. Just like games 2 and 3 it will be on TNT

  • Game 5: Monday, TBD in Philadelphia

    Well if they need a game 5 it will be Monday. While we dont know the official tip off time we can say with GREAT confidence that it wont be 1pm. Likely a 7 or 7:30 tip off. No word on who will broadcast this game on TV but the Fanatic has you covered ALWAYS

  • Game 6: Thursday, TBD in Brooklyn

    The Sixers once again have a lot of time in between games as they prepare to head to Brooklyn. But they wont need it. Were just talking hypotheticals here. And hypothetically speaking, if they need this one it will be Thursday in Brooklyn. No word on start time or TV broadcast.

  • Game 7: Saturday, TBD in Philadelphia

    If we need this game lord help us all. But if the series goes 7 it will be broadcast on TNT. No word on start time.
