The two-time defending champion Miami Heat will be the 76ers' first opponent this upcoming season when they visit the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday, Oct. 30.

The Sixers will play seven of their first nine games at home, and will welcome Chicago, Golden State, Washington, Cleveland, San Antonio and Houston, in addition to the Heat. They will meet up with former Sixer Jrue Holiday on Nov. 16 in New Orleans, before Holiday returns to Philly on Friday, Nov. 29, with him Pelicans teammates.

The high-flying Los Angeles Clippers will make their lone stop to the WFC on Monday, Dec. 9. Later that month, the Sixers will embark on their annual holiday road trip (as the "Disney on Ice" tour takes over the WFC) which will begin in Milwaukee on Dec. 21. The six-game trip will include games at Phoenix, the Lakers, Denver, Sacramento and Portland. After that trip ends on Jan. 4, the team will play nine of the remaining 14 games in January at home. A three-game trip out West in February (Clippers, Golden State, Utah) will take the Sixers to the All-Star break. The All-Star Game will be Feb. 16 in New Orleans.

Kevin Durant will bring his Oklahoma City Thunder to the WFC on Saturday, Jan. 25, while Kobe Bryant (if his surgically repaired Achilles' tendon is healed) and the Los Angeles Lakers make their lone stop on Friday, Feb. 7.
