76ers vs San Antonio Spurs
The history of the Philadelphia 76ers and San Antonio Spurs is littered with matchups between basketball legends. In the late 1970s and early 80s, prolific scorers “Dr. J” Julius Erving and “The Iceman” George Gervin went head-to-head, even meeting in the Eastern Conference semifinals in 1979. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, “The Answer” Allen Iverson would fearlessly take on “The Big Fundamental” Tim Duncan.
Now, these contests are headlined by a new era. The Sixers are led by renowned coach Doc Rivers and feature several star caliber players, like Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris, while the Spurs have a much celebrated head coach of their own in Gregg Popovich. The teams face off one more time in the 2021-22 NBA regular season, and the Sixers have already taken the game at The Center in South Philly. Get your tickets to see other exciting matchups today!
