Sixers-Bulls Preview

Chicago Bulls (29-36)

Philadelphia 76ers (31-31)

The Philadelphia 76ers, who have split two games this year with the Chicago Bulls, will look to go one game over .500 once again. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since December 2, in which the Bulls outplayed the Sixers en route to a 103-95 victory. Although Philly has proven to be able to take down teams such as San Antonio and Phoenix, they just cant seem to put the 500 winning percentage in their rear view mirror. Thadeus Young is coming off of a career high 29 point masterpiece against Toronto, and will most likely be matched up against the Bulls' Tyrus Thomas. These two athletic youngsters, and their high flying style of play, should put on quite a show as these teams meet up for the third time this year. The last time these two teams met, in December, Andre Miller scored a game high 28 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds. Rookie phenom Derrick Rose scored a team high 24 points, going 11-19 from the field.

These two playoff contending teams will display a very similar style of play, and will race up and down the court for the full duration of the contest. The Chicago Bulls currently sit tied with the Milwaukee Bucks for the eighth and final spot in the chase to the post season. Tomorrow night's game will be large for both teams, being that each of them will be looking to advance one seed for the playoffs. Currently, the 76ers are a half a game behind the Pistons. With a 76ers win tomorrow night, and a Detroit Pistons loss, to the Toronto Raptors, the 76ers will advance to the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, and will look to track down Miami next. Miami is currently 35-29. This game will break the head to head tie between the two teams, which is 1-1, and will be the third of four meetings this season. Their final meeting will come March 9, on a Thursday, which will be a much important fifth to final game of the season.
