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

The Philadelphia 76ers will take on the Detroit Pistons in a Sunday matinee, and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The Sixers will look to bounce back following a tough loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday and the Pistons offer up that perfect opportunity.

The Sixers gave up 11 triples to Zach LaVine on Friday and they will now turn their attention to a Pistons team that has been struggling all season. They will be without their best player in Cade Cunningham and the Sixers will have to take advantage of the opportunity in front of them in order to get back in the win column. They will host these same Pistons on Tuesday so this is a big chance for James Harden and co.

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