Chicago Faces Philadelphia in Game 4 of the series
After the emotional letdown of seeing Joakim Noah injured and a late lead slip away, the Chicago Bulls face perhaps their biggest challenge of the season when they face the Philadelphia 76ers in a defining Game 4.
If the Bulls are going to win this series, it will likely have to be done without the service of Joakim Noah, who hurt his ankle in Game 3 and is doubtful for the remainder of the series. This is just the latest in a string of devastating injuries for the Bulls, who lost Derrick Rose to a knee injury in Game 1.
In order to even this series, the Bulls will need a bigger impact from Luol Deng, who scored only five points in Game 3. C.J. Watson also needs to find his rhythm after being held scoreless in the loss.
Game Date & Time: Sunday, May 6, 12 p.m. (CST)
