Sixers’ road struggles against winning teams is alarming | Off the Dribble
If one thinks playing the 13-36 Hawks on the road was difficult, what comes next might be disconcerting to the Sixers, with three straight Eastern Conference contenders on the schedule.
The Sixers will visit Boston on Saturday and travel to Miami on Monday. After Monday’s game against the Heat, the Sixers will return to Philadelphia. They will practice Wednesday before finishing the road trip in Milwaukee on Thursday, the day of the NBA trade deadline.
