THE NBA released its schedule for the upcoming season Thursday and the 76ers will open on Oct. 31 at home against the Denver Nuggets. Ten of the team's first 15 games will be at the Wells Fargo Center.
After the opener the Sixers will have a home-and-home series with the New York Knicks on Nov. 4 and 5. They'll face Anthony Davis, the No. 1 overall pick of the draft, and the Hornets on Nov. 7 in New Orleans before going to Boston for a game with the Celtics on Nov. 9. The Celtics ended the Sixers season with a Game 7-win in the Eastern Conference semifinals last season.
