The Philadelphia 76ers came within a game of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals this season. It was further than all but the most partisan of fans imagined prior to the start of the season. What lies ahead for the Sixers in 2012-2013 remains to be seen, but they get a first look at it on Thursday night when the NBA releases the 2012-2013 schedule.
Philadelphia finished the shortened season with a 35-31 record, behind Boston and New York in the Atlantic Conference. The Sixers have not been to the NBA Finals since 2001, when they lost the Lakers. Can they make it back this season?
The NBA will release the 2012-2013 schedule in a prime time special on NBA TV at 7:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday.
