After playing them tight for most of the first two quarters, the Chicago Bulls allowed the Philadelphia 76ers to pull away in the third. Going into the fourth quarter, the Bulls now trail 75-55 against one of the league's best home teams.
It was a brutal third quarter for Chicago, which could only muster 11 points on offense. The defense wasn't much better, either, with Philadelphia cruising to 27 points and a huge fourth quarter lead. Other than Derrick Rose, the Bulls have just really struggled, shooting just 38 percent from the field combined.
Rose leads Chicago with 18 points on 8-of-17 shooting so far. Carlos Boozer and C.J. Watson have also scored nine points apiece. Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala has had a big game so far with 18 points, eight rebounds and four assists, while Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday and Lavoy Allen have all scored in the double-digits as well.
