ESPN Adds Sixers Vs. Mavs To National TV Telecast

Prior to the season the Philadelphia 76ers were alloted six nationally televised games – all on ESPN – beginning March 2 against the Golden State Warriors. They also had three games televised on NBA TV. Now, according to Tom Moore of Philly Burbs, ESPN has announced that they have added the Sixers home game with the defending champions, Dallas Mavericks, to their national telecast.

#ESPN spokeman on adding #Sixers game vs. Mavs: "The primary reason is due to the Sixers success. They have 'played their way' on schedule."

The added game gives the Sixers seven nationally televised games (math!) and 10 if you count the NBA TV games. If the Sixers continue to play well, especially during their upcoming stretch against tough competition, I wouldn't be surprised to see either ESPN, ABC or NBA TV add a few more Sixers games to their schedule. The Sixers only had one nationally televised game last season.
