OAKLAND, Calif. - The second game of a back-to-back series in the NBA is never kind to teams, especially when they are waking up in hotel rooms. It's easily the most difficult type of game to play. And if you factor in airplane trips and different time zones, it's easier to understand the plight of the 76ers. They will play in Portland, Ore., on Saturday night, on the heels of Friday's road game against the Golden State Warriors.
