Chicago (7-7) will try to move above the .500 mark against Philadelphia, but it won't be easy. The 76ers (9-6) have the NBA's seventh-best defense, allowing 93.7 points per game. That makes up for an offense that averages just 92.7 points per game. Despite an inferior record, Chicago has better statistics. The Bulls score 94.5 points per contest, and Chicago allows 92.3 points, which ranks fifth in the league.
While 21 games are set to take place Friday and Saturday, only two contests are on the schedule Sunday. The Suns and Knicks meet at Madison Square Garden, and Dwight Howard faces his former team when the Lakers host the Magic.
