76ers to open at home vs. Nuggets

Posted: July 27, 2012

The 76ers will open their 2012-13 season at home on Halloween night, playing host to the Denver Nuggets.

The schedule, announced by the NBA on Thursday night, sees the Sixers play 10 of their first 15 games at home.

The Sixers, who were eliminated by the Boston Celtics in seven games in the Eastern Conference semifinals, will get their first shot at Boston on the road on Nov. 9. The Celtics make their first visit to the Wells Fargo Center on Dec. 7.

The Dallas Mavericks, who picked up former Sixer Elton Brand off amnesty waivers earlier this month, will play in Philadelphia on Nov. 27. Lou Williams will return with the Atlanta Hawks on Dec. 21.

The Sixers' longest road trip is an eight-game stretch from Dec. 23 to Jan. 5. From Jan. 26 to Feb. 11, they will play eight straight games at home.

The NBA season opens on Oct. 30, when the Miami Heat open defense of their title at home against the Celtics.
