The Sixers have a buzz surrounding them right now and the NBA will definitely be looking to capitalize on that in the upcoming season.
That should translate into more national TV games when the regular-season schedule is released in the near future and it appears one special date has been locked in.
According to the Spike Eskin of 94WIP, the Sixers will face the New York Knicks on Christmas Day.
The Sixers and Knicks split their four-game series a season ago with each game being decided by three points or less.
This matchup would be the second high-profile game the Sixers have been linked to this summer. Last month, a report surfaced that the team would take on the Boston Celtics at London's O2 Arena on Jan. 11, 2018 (see story).
