When the Nets open their pre-season in October, their first game will be a road game in New Jersey -- Atlantic City, New Jersey-- vs. Philadelphia. It will be fans' first look at the Nets' road uniforms.
Various reports Monday confirmed speculation that the Nets and 76ers will play October 13 in Atlantic City's giant Boardwalk Hall, the 86-year-old arena on the ocean. The Sixers will announce the game at a press conference Tuesday. Ticket information for the Philadelphia-Brooklyn preseason game at Boardwalk Hall has not yet been released.
The last NBA game played in A.C. took place 30 years ago, also between the Nets and 76ers.
