Chicago Bulls vs Philadelphia 76ers Analysis

The Chicago Bulls have won two straight and four of their last five, propelling them back into the playoff picture at 33-37 and 10th place in the Eastern Conference. That gives them a 1.5 game lead over 11th place Washington and Indiana while being just 1.5 games behind 9th place Toronto. On Saturday night, Chicago had an emphatic win against Miami Heat 113-99; further solidifying their position for contention going forward. The Bulls received an offensive boost from guard Patrick Beverly, who had 17 points on 5 three-pointers. DeMar DeRozan led the Bulls with 24 points and 10 assists.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been on fire, winning 8 straight games and 9 of their last 10. This has propelled them into a tie for second in the Eastern Conference playoff race with the Celtics, and at this rate and with how well the Celtics are playing, it looks like they may pass them out. A second place finish would grant them an enormous advantage since hosting game 7 if needed in the second round of playoffs against Boston. On Saturday night, the Sixers claimed their eighth straight win with a 141-121 triumph against Indiana. Shooting an incredible 61% from the floor and making 15 of 35 three pointers, Joel Embiid had 31 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists while Tyrese Maxey added 31 points and 7 assists too. Tobias Harris contributed 24 points while James Harden missed the game due to a foot injury; and is questionable for Monday.
