Sixers vs. Pelicans game preview: Lineups, how to watch, broadcast info

The Philadelphia 76ers continue their four-game road trip on Friday as they take on Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans. If you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The Pelicans have been playing excellent basketball, and the Sixers will need a bounce-back effort after a loss in Washington.

The Pelicans knocked off the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, a game in which Doc Rivers and two other Sixers coaches attended. New Orleans received a career-high 43 points from Williamson. The Sixers have faced Williamson once in his career (April 9, 2021). He had 37 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists in a Pelicans win. Joel Embiid and the Sixers will have their hands full.

Here’s when and where you should tune in to see the matchup:
