PHILADELPHIA. — The Philadelphia 76ers pulled out an 89-82 win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Sunday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers lead the series 3-1.

The Bulls scratched and clawed their way through this game, but they simply didn’t have enough to win it in the end without Derrick Rose (torn ACL) and Joakim Noah (ankle). Carlos Boozer had 23 points and 11 rebounds while Taj Gibson chipped in with 14 points and 12 rebounds, but they were the only two Bulls’ players who played with much offensive consistency. C.J. Watson added 17 points, and hit several clutch shots in the final minutes, but he was just 5-for-18 from the field. Luol Deng and Rip Hamilton combined for just 18 points and did not come through down the stretch the way the veteran leaders needed to without Rose and Noah. Spencer Hawes led the Sixers with 22 points. Jrue Holiday added 20.

Game 5 is Tuesday night at the United Center.
