Last night, the Sixers dropped their 22nd consecutive game, losing 102-94 to the Chicago Bulls. However, the Sixers did not just lay down and get ran out of their own building. For the past few games, the Sixers have showed a lot of fight, something that describes the reputation of the city of Philadelphia perfectly.
With just about eight minutes left in the game, the Sixers tied the score, after trailing by as much as 11 to one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Even though Philadelphia lost the game, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau praised the effort he saw on the court.
Here’s what Thibodeau said about the Sixers (via Chicago Tribune):
“I give a guy like Young a lot of credit for his professionalism and how hard he plays,” Thibodeau said. “They play together and have a great spirit about them.”
