NBA schedule 2012: Sixers continue West Coast swing to begin 2013

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Sixers will begin the new year by continuing their West Coast swing with games against the Lakers and Suns.

The Philadelphia 76ers will remain on the road to begin 2013. The Sixers have already been on the West Coast for games against the Warriors and Trail Blazers but will stay out West to take on the Lakers and Suns on Jan. 1 and Jan. 2.

The Sixers lost in the previous meeting with the Lakers, 111-98, on Dec. 16 at the Wells Fargo Center. Nick Young scored 30 for the Sixers in that outing but Philadelphia couldn't overcome the Lakers which were led by Kobe Bryant's 34-point night and a double-double from Metta World Peace (19 points, career-high 16 rebounds).

The Sixers had better luck with the Suns and defeated Phoenix, 104-101, in the only previous meeting this season between the teams on Nov. 25. Jrue Holiday had 33 points and 13 assists in that game to push the Sixers past the Suns.
