PHILADELPHIA – FEB. 24, 2021 – The Philadelphia 76ers announced today the Second Half of the 2020-21 regular season schedule presented by Toyota, including the team’s first game back in action following the All-Star break, a road matchup with All-Star Zach LaVine and the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, March 11 at 8 p.m. ET.

Philadelphia recently completed its fifth series of the First Half and will play another three during the Second Half.
First, the 76ers will play consecutive road games at Milwaukee on Thursday, April 22 (7 p.m. ET) and Saturday, April 24 (3:30 p.m. ET), with each game being nationally televised; the first on TNT and the second on ESPN.
