Sixers open at Orlando, schedule set

The 76ers will open their season the same way last season ended — against the Orlando Magic.

The Sixers visit Orlando on Wednesday, Oct. 28, in the opener, according to the NBA schedule released today.

The home opener at the Wachovia Center is two nights later against Milwaukee on Oct. 30.

The NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers make their only visit to Philadelphia on Jan. 29.

LeBron James, Shaquille O'Neal and Cleveland comes to town on Dec. 16 and March 12.

The Sixers have two substantial stretches of road games — playing seven of eight away from home from Nov. 21 to Dec. 5 and their annual holiday road trip with six games from Dec. 22 to Jan. 3.

The first trip leads into five consecutive home games, beginning Dec. 7 against Denver.
