10) Joakim Noah's tiki shell necklace really does bring out his eyes, but if the Brady Bunch is to be believed, is not bringing him good luck9) Leon Wood treated most of the first half as if blowing his referee whistle would cost him money, or make people look up his playing career8) Carlos Boozer spat his gum on the ball, which isn't a foul, but good God, it should be7) Taj Gibson and Elton Brand got to know each other on a nearly Biblical level on a double technical loose ball scramble6) The Sixers actually scored 26 points in the first half, and yet were still in the game, which shows you just how ugly this game was5) If Chicago is going to play with this kind of defensive intensity and referee cooperation, they can still beat anyone in the Association4) It's really obvious that Andre Igoudala's Achilles injury is having an impact, in that when he settles for a long jumper that won't go, it's done with resignation rather than misguided enthusiasm3) Taj Gib...

Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says center Joakim Noah is a ''game-time decision'' for Tuesday's playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers because of a sprained left ankle.

The latest in a long line of Philly Fans vs The World came in Game 3 of the Sixers-Bulls series.

Down 3-1 to the Sixers in the first round of the NBA playoffs, the Bulls got bad news when they found out that Joakim Noah probably won’t play in game five. Is that news really all that bad though? I think I’d rather lose then play with Noah anyway.
It came down to the end of the game. One Philadelphia 76er hit a free throw to end the game and series. That one shot sent the Chicago Bulls home for the rest of the season. Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose are probably devastated right now.
Great free-throw line percentage, grabbing balls off the floor and beating the opposition to the basket.
The Sixers. Go figure.
With the Flyers on the ropes and the Phillies near .500, the Sixers are now the hot team.
The Sixers grabbed a 89-82 win over the Bulls to grab a 3-1 NBA opening round lead.
If the Sixers win Tuesday night, it was be the first time since...
