76ers journey to the NBA Finals begins Sunday
Save the date, Sunday, May 23rd. That is when the Philadelphia 76ers will begin their campaign to bring him the Larry O’Brien trophy this season. The Sixers are currently waiting to see who their upcoming opponent will be during the first round. As it stands, Philly’s opponent will be between the Washington Wizards, Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, or Charlotte Hornets.
The Sixers play on the second day possible, with Brooklyn and Milwaukee playing on Saturday. Philly will have a whole week off to recover before embarking on their playoff journey, which should help Joel and Ben get some much-needed rest. When the playoffs kick off, Wells Fargo Center will hold 50% capacity or around 10,000 fans which will be a massive boost for the Sixers.
For those interested in attending the playoff games in person, tickets are currently on sale and are roughly $100 for 200 level seating and $200 for 100 level seating. The energy is always electric during 76ers playoff games, so I highly recommend it if you have the opportunity. Tonight begins the play-in tournament, which will decide who the Sixers will face this weekend.
