The Philadelphia 76ers are now up to eight nationally televised games – all on ESPN – along with three on NBA TV. According to Tom Moore of Philly Burbs (H/T KJ Brophy), ESPN has announced that they have added the Sixers and Pacers March 14 match-up to their national broadcast schedule.
#ESPN adds #Sixers at #Pacers March 14 game to TV schedule. Still starts at 7 p.m
This is the second such announcement ESPN has made in recent weeks. They also added the Sixers/Mavs game.
The Sixers only had one nationally televised game last season, and without doing the research I would bet that the Sixers eight games – and counting – are more than the Sixers have had in the last few seasons, combined. It's amazing what winning does for a franchise. Andre Iguodala is getting All-Star consideration, the national media is writing positively about the Sixers, and they're going to be on TV all the time (six times in March alone). Don't be surprised if more Sixers games are added in the future.
