Wednesday, Oct. 31 vs. Denver Nuggets
I really like to think of the Nuggets as the Sixers of the Western Conference. They are two very similar teams who matchup well. Neither team has a superstar, but they each have a lot of young players who can run the floor. This is a great matchup to tip off the season.
Sunday, November 4 @ New York Knicks
Philadelphia will always be on the Knicks' tail entering the playoffs. Considering there will be another close finish in the playoff seeding, this game certainly has its weight to it.
Friday, November 9 @ Boston Celtics
Let the vengeance begin. The Sixers pushed the Celtics to game seven and will seek revenge on their bitter loss at Boston. The game seven loss and dirty play is the farthest thing from forgotten.
Saturday, November 10 @ Toronto Raptors
The Raptors are one of the handful of teams that improved over the offseason, and some have speculated they could surpass Philly. The Sixers need to show that they are still a better team.
Saturday, November 24 vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
This will be a huge challenge for Philadelphia as they take on arguably the best team in the Western Conference. Last season the Thunder won by just four points, so expect an exciting game here. The Sixers could really show off with a win here.
October/November W-L Prediction: 10-6
Wins: Nuggets, Knicks, Hornets, Bucks, Pistons, Cavaliers, Raptors, Cavaliers, Suns, Bobcats
Losses: Knicks, Celtics, Raptors, Jazz Thunder, Mavericks
