76ers Schedule 2012: Cleveland And Atlanta Come To Philly This Week

The Philadelphia 76ers haven't been the same over the past month and a half.

Doug Collins had his team playing wonderful basketball for much of December through mid-February, but the wheels have started to come off. Philly has lost 13 of its previous 19 contests and seen its lead in the Atlantic Division shrink to just half a game over Boston and three on New York.

With a light schedule this week, the 76ers have to regroup and get a couple of victories. All is certainly not lost for one of the most balanced and technically sound teams in the NBA. However, the time is now to get things back on track for the stretch run.

Tuesday, March 27th: Philadelphia vs Cleveland 7:00 p.m. ET on COMCAST

The Cavaliers make their only visit to the Wells Fargo Center all year this week. Cleveland (17-29) is certainly improved with rookie sensation Kyrie Irving but far from a contender, which makes this game an absolute must-have for Elton Brand and company.

Friday, March 30th: Philadelphia at Washington 7:00 p.m. ET on COMCAST

This is another game the 76ers need to put in the win column. John Wall and the Wizards (11-37) are suffering through another rough season and don't have much to play for. With the schedule tough in April, these opportunities will be rare.

Saturday, March 31st: Philadelphia vs Atlanta 7:30 p.m. ET COMCAST

The Hawks are a legitimate team and tough to play against with their unique blend of size and athleticism. Atlanta (30-20) will be looking for a measure of revenge after losing the first two games between the two this season.
