Bulls Vs. 76ers Score Update: Bulls Take Nine Point Lead Into Fourth

The vaunted Chicago Bulls defense really bared its teeth in the third quarter of Friday night's Game 3 match up with the Philadelphia 76ers, holding the Sixers to only 11 points as they regained the lead and held it at 60-51 going into the fourth. Chicago continued to suffocate Philadelphia's already stagnant offense, dropping the Sixers' field goal percentage to 30% on the night and holding them to 1-12 shooting from the three point line.

The Bulls didn't put up major points themselves, but their 21 points in the quarter were more than enough to give them a comfortable lead. But it wasn't all good news for Tom Thibodeau and his staff, as center Joakim Noah badly turned his left ankle and left for the locker room after briefly attempting to play through the injury. Carlos Boozer, who has 16 points and eight rebounds, helped pick up the slack in the frontcourt.
