PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – For the first time since the week before Christmas, the Sixers will play a game at home tonight when they host the Brooklyn Nets.
Since beating the Hawks in South Philadelphia, 99-80, on December 21st, the Sixers have played eight straight on the road. They went 2-6 during that extended road trip, wrapping up the trek with a loss down in San Antonio on Saturday.
Sixers center Spencer Hawes was a guest on KYW Newsradio Tuesday, saying that the length and timing of that trip really made it a grind.
“It’s tough,” Hawes says. “You’re on the road, it’s the holiday season, there’s a lot of stuff going on. It’s just nice to be back home and settle in a little bit.”
