We've seen slip-ups from a few of the NBA's elite teams this year thanks to the condensed regular season -- look no further than Oklahoma City losing a game to the Wizards -- and tonight the Chicago Bulls had a slip-up of their own. The Bulls were ran off the court in Philadelphia by the 76ers in a 98-82 loss on Wednesday night. Philadelphia grabbed control of the game in the third quarter when they outscored Chicago 26-11 and the Bulls were unable to put together a run in the fourth. The loss drops Chicago to 18-6, while Philadelphia improves to 16-6.
Philadelphia wing Andre Iguodala was truly fantastic throughout, finishing with 19 points, nine rebounds, and four assists. He had help, as three 76ers' reserves also reached double-figures. Thaddeus Young had 19 points and eight rebounds, Lavoy Allen scored 15, and Lou Williams added 14 points.
C.J. Watson led Chicago with 20 points off the bench. Derrick Rose scored 18 and had six assists.
Chicago played the game without starters Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton.
