2012 NBA Playoffs, Bulls Vs. 76ers: Game 5 Highlights Are A Taj Gibson Mixtape (Video)

The Chicago Bulls held off the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night to extend their opening-round 2012 NBA Playoffs series to Game 6 in Philly, and most of the credit is due to Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng. The Bulls ground out a 77-69 win, and nobody did more grinding than Gibson. The young forward came in off the bench and worked in tandem with Brewer to stifle the 76ers' offense for most of the night. Timely rotations and heady play helped Chicago limit Philadelphia to 32.1 percent shooting (25-78 FGs) while Boozer and Deng took care of the offense by combining for 43 points on 19-39 shooting.

CSN-Chicago has a nice collection of highlights from the game, and the quartet plays a central role in nearly every clip. Everything from Gibson's turned ankle to his huge hustle plays are included, and by the end you might feel like you've just watched a Taj Gibson mixtape. Check it out:
