Bulls Vs. 76ers Update: Starting Lineups Announced For Game 5

The Chicago Bulls enter Game 5 of their first round series in the 2012 NBA Playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers with their backs against the wall. The Bulls are down 3-1 and need a win tonight at the United Center to avoid an unexpectedly long summer vacation.

The starting lineups are in for Game 5. Let's take a look:

It comes as no surprise that center Joakim Noah is again out after spraining his ankle in Game 3 in Philadelphia. It's also no secret that Luol Deng and C.J. Watson are hurting and playing at less than 100 percent.

The Bulls certainly have a tall task in front of them tonight.
