The NBA season has been suspended for nearly a month now and it certainly hasn't gotten any easier.
But that doesn't mean that we need to be without the Sixers entirely. We're giving Authentic Fans a chance to pick which Sixers game we'll broadcast on NBC Sports Philadelphia, the MyTeams app, and right here at NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com.
The voting begins now and the winning game will air Saturday night, April 11, at 7 p.m.
Here are your options:
Sixers vs. Warriors | Jan. 28, 2020
The floor was the same and the warmup routines were unaltered, but, as the Sixers prepared to play the Warriors Tuesday, it didn’t feel like a typical game night at Wells Fargo Center.
It clearly wasn’t, after the tragic deaths Sunday of Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others in a helicopter crash.
Sixers player development specialist Roy Hibbert and Warriors guard D’Angelo Russell, former teammates of Bryant’s, talked at half court.
Stephen Curry tapped Joel Embiid on the back to briefly interrupt his warmup and share a few words.
Before tip-off, the Sixers paid tribute to Bryant and the other victims of the accident in several ways, including through players wearing No. 8 and No. 24 warmup uniforms, and by spotlighting Bryant’s framed No. 33 Lower Merion High School jersey.
The game began with the Sixers taking an eight-second violation, followed by the Warriors taking a 24-second violation.
Embiid wore No. 24 to honor Bryant after clearing the move with Hall of Fame forward Bobby Jones — the Sixers retired 24 in Jones' honor in 1986. Zhaire Smith sported No. 7 instead of his usual No. 8.
Business eventually resumed, in a way.
Sixers vs. Pelicans | Dec. 13, 2019
The Sixers’ home record is still unblemished.
They beat the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night, 116-109, to move to 20-7 on the season and 14-0 at Wells Fargo Center. This was New Orleans’ 11th straight defeat.
Tobias Harris scored a team-high 31 points on 12 for 20 shooting, helping the Sixers to overcome an uneven effort.
