2013 NBA schedule: 76ers finish road stretch with Thunder, Spurs

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia finishes a long road stretch with a back-to-back against the Thunder and the Spurs.

The Philadelphia 76ers kick off a nightmarish back-to-back Friday night, facing the league-best Oklahoma City Thunder on the road before heading down to San Antonio for a Saturday night tip against the 26-9 Spurs.

The Sixers are working their way back toward the Atlantic after back-to-back earlier in the week on the West Coast, beating the Los Angeles Lakers 103-99 on Tuesday before losing at the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, 95-89. In fact, Philadelphia hasn't played a home game since Dec. 21, a 99-80 win over the Atlanta Hawks. Since then the Sixers are 2-4 with two more road games to go.

In return, Philadelphia will play 13 of its next 15 games after this weekend at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Thunder won the first matchup against Philadelphia earlier this season, a 116-109 win on Nov. 24. Friday's game will be the last time they play in the regular season. That night, Kevin Durant had 37 points, and Russell Westbrook finished with 30 points and nine rebounds. Thaddeus Young had 29 points and 15 boards to lead the Sixers that night.
