With a series tying 109-92 win on Tuesday night, the Sixers come home to the Wells Fargo Center for Game 3.  The Sixers will look to shock the basketball world tonight and take a 2-1 series lead over the number one ranked, Rose-less Chicago Bulls.

Andre Iguodala is expected to play, although he was fighting through tendinitis in his right Achilles. Wells Fargo Center will be going crazy as Philadelphia has the opportunity to take the series lead.

If the Sixers want to defeat the number one seeded Bulls, they have to replicate their effort from Tuesday.  The third quarter of Tuesday's game was our "run with us" offense, which is exactly what they need to do.

Show Ya Luv tonight, Game 3 starts at 8:00pm.  Here is the projected starting lineup:

Jrue Holiday

Evan Turner

Andre Iguodala

Elton Brand

Spencer Hawes
