2012 NBA schedule: Lakers vs. 76ers highlight quiet Sunday

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Most teams have the day off on Sunday as the Lakers and 76ers face off in Philadelphia.

With most of the NBA playing on Saturday, Sunday will be a quiet day off for most teams in the league. The light Sunday schedule is highlighted by one Eastern conference team holding onto their eighth spot in the conference by a thread and another still trying to put it all together.

If Andrew Bynum were healthy, a match-up between his old team, the Los Angeles Lakers and his new one, the Philadelphia 76ers would be met with much more pomp and circumstance. But with Bynum still injured, the story line will continue to be the Lakers trying to find a way to win without Steve Nash and Pau Gasol.

Here's a look at the rest of the NBA schedule for Sunday, Dec. 16. For a look at the full schedule, head over to SI.com.
