In one of the worst nights in Philadelphia sports, the Sixers made it worse.  Last night all three of the Philadelphia teams lost. The Sixers were defeated in a very physical game 5, 77-69.  The Sixers came out in the first half scoring just 26 points, the worst first half in team history.

Tonight, the Sixers just couldn't seem to sink their shots and because of that, there will be a game 6.  The Bulls leaned on their top guns tonight and they sure delivered, here is some stats from game 5:

  • Luol Deng- Deng led the Bulls, and the game with 24 points.  Luol also had 8 rebounds and one assists.
  • Carlos Boozer- Boozer was second on the Bulls with 19 points.  Carlos led the Bulls in rebounds with 13, and 6 assists.  Both Boozer and Deng changes the game for the Bulls.
  • Jrue Holiday led the Sixers in points, with 19, along with 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
  • Spencer Hawes played a strong game for Philadelphia, as he led the game the with 14 total rebounds.  Hawes had 11 points and 3 assists as well.
  • Lou Williams also played a strong game with 13 points, 3 assists, and 2 rebounds.

Game 6 is on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center, time to be determined. The Bulls will likely have Joakim Noah back on Thursday, the Sixers need to play their game and end this series. #ShowYaLuv
