Sixers start season with difficult stretch, including five straight on road

Story (with Holiday video interview):

Here is a portion of the story:

"They play three games in a row for the first time since the 50-game 1999 lockout season. The Sixers must do that twice — Jan. 9 (Indiana), 10 (Sacramento) and 11 (at New York), and April 16 (at Orlando), 17 (Indiana) and 18 (at Cleveland). Only 12 of the 30 NBA teams have more than one set of back-to-back-to-backs"

Also, somebody asked me if six ESPN games was the most they've had on national TV. Knew it wasn't, but needed proof. Found old 2001-02 Sixers media guide and they had 12 NBC games that season, which followe the 2001 trip to the NBA FInals.
