Game Info: 8 pm ET, Airing on TNT.
The Sixers will try to snap their seven game losing streak Thursday night in the United Center. Philadelphia comes off a dismal 98-84 loss to the Orlando Magic. This loss led to a post game tirade by Head Coach Doug Collins questioning the heart and effort of his young team. Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with a sub par performance of 9 points and 10 assists. The bench contributed more than the starters with Damien Wilkins and Jeremy Pargo providing 14 points a piece and Dorrell Wright added 11 as well. Even worse for the Sixers is the fact the Bulls will not be in a good mood. The Bulls lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-98 Tuesday night. Carlos Boozer led the Bulls with 27 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. The Bulls shot 50 percent from the field but turned the ball over 15 times, which cost them in the end. The Sixers will have to jump on the Bulls early if they wanna pull the upset, because this a talented and experienced squad. It will also be interesting to see if the Sixers come out and play with some effort and heart tonight after being ripped by Collins in the press. Hope Im wrong, but I don’t like the Sixers chances tonight.
