Falling just short of the Conference Finals mark, Joel Embiid and co. will have been extremely upset at their performance.

The Sixers are set to kickoff their campaign on the 20th of October away from home. Following their pre-season clashes, they will face the New Orleans Pelicans in their opening fixture. Two days later, they will play hosts to title-favorites Brooklyn Nets. Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris headline the 76ers attack this year, with the others looking to bridge the gap of Simmons’ absence.
