Professional basketball is bound for the Atlantic City Boardwalk as the Philadelphia 76ers will drive down the Expressway and battle the Brooklyn Nets at Boardwalk Hall in the fall.

"The Boardwalk Classic" will mark the 3rd meeting between the Sixers and the Nets at Boardwalk Hall.  This preseason battle will give the Sixers fan base in South Jersey their first chance to see their newest acquisition - 7-foot big man Andrew Bynum (who averaged 19 points, 12 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game for the L.A. Lakers last season).

The game will tip off at 7pm on Saturday, October 13, and tickets are now on sale through Ticketmaster (look for tickets to range between $10-$50 for the upper and lower level seating).  The game is being sponsored by Caesars Atlantic City.

"A key tactic in the strategy of revitalizing A.C. is offering events such as this," comments Don Marrandino, Eastern Division President of Caesars Entertainment.  "We look forward to a historic match up between the new-look Sixers and the newly minted Brooklyn Nets."
