Sixers to open 2013-14 season against LeBron James, reigning champion Miami Heat

Projected to have one of the youngest starting lineups in the NBA, the 76ers aren't going to be granted any favors during the 2013-14 season – beginning with their opening-night opponent.

The Sixers will open the season Oct. 30 at Wells Fargo Center against LeBron James and the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. League-wide, the NBA released schedules for all teams Tuesday night.

Aside from Miami, another gem of a game comes only a few days later, when Cleveland and former Sixers bench staple Andrew Bynum play the front-end of a home-and-home series in South Philly Nov. 8. Bynum and Co. make a repeat trip to town Feb. 18.

Other highlights to the home portion of the Sixers' schedule include:
Jrue Holiday's first game at Wells Fargo in a visiting team's colors, when New Orleans visits Nov. 29; Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce with division rival Brooklyn Dec. 20, the Sixers' final home game before their annual lengthy holiday road trip; Miami's return and final appearance in Philly Jan. 17; and Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Lakers making weekend trips, Jan. 25 and Feb. 7, respectively.
