Bulls Vs. 76ers: Chicago Visits Philadelphia In Eastern Conference Duel

The Bulls will be looking to end a four-game skid against the 76ers.

Two of the Eastern Conference's best teams, the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers, battle each other on Sunday. Chicago will be looking to end a four-game losing streak against Philadelphia, which defeated the Bulls on Feb. 1 at Wells Fargo Arena, 98-82. The Bulls were short-handed in the first match-up of the season, missing Luol Deng to a sprained left wrist. The Sixers forced 17 turnovers in the win.

The Sixers are trying to get on their first winning streak of two or more games in quite a while. Philadelphia (22-15) is the loser of six of its last eight contests, while the Bulls (30-8) are winners of 12 of their last 14.

Derrick Rose certainly hasn't forgotten about the loss to the Sixers just over a month ago, and told ESPNChicago.com that the Bulls have to come better prepared against this emerging Philadelphia team.

"They're a good team," Rose said of the Sixers. "I think we're kind of mad with the way that they smacked us last time at their place. It's definitely going to be a fun game."

Game time/date: 6:00 p.m. CT, Sunday, March 4, 2012

Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA

TV: ESPN
