Have You Been To A Sixers Game Yet This Season?

We know, we know: they're not the Phillies, Eagles, or Flyers. But the Philadelphia 76ers somewhat quietly have been having one of the best seasons in recent team history. The Sixers currently lead the NBA's Atlantic Division, having a better record than their more celebrated division rival, the New York Knicks. Sure, Linsanity seemed like the biggest surprise story of the NBA season. But the 76ers's continued development might be an even bigger and — for Philadelphians — better surprise.

Of course, it's not a complete surprise. With the same coaching staff and a very similar roster, the 76ers challenged the superstar-heavy Miami Heat in last season's playoffs. And without any true superstars of their own, the Sixers have continued to play an efficient and unselfish style of basketball this season. Players like Andre Iguodala, Jrue Holiday, Lou Williams, and Evan Turner have helped turn the team into a quiet juggernaut. The 76ers are near the top of the league standings in point differential (a measure of how many more points the team scores than its opponents) and defensive efficiency, a measure of how few points the Sixers give up on defense. Read that as: they're good. Really good.

If you haven't yet seen the Sixers in person, you're in luck. The NBA season still has six weeks to go and the Philadelphia 76ers have remaining home games against teams like the Knicks, Celtics, Hawks, and Magic. The team frequently offers specials on tickets, like $59 Club Level seats. You can check the Sixers website for details on tickets and upcoming games.

Getting to the Wells Fargo Center is a simple journey, whether you live in Fishtown, East Falls, Queen Village, or Spruce Hill. A quick trek down SEPTA's Broad Street Line to AT&T Station takes you right to the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. Did we mention that concessions include Crabby Fries? Go already!
