Philadelphia finally had a chance to steal a win against a top tier team in the NBA, but they showed why they have just 4 wins on the season.
Philadelphia blew a 20+ point lead and eventually fell in overtime to the Bulls by 4.
This will mark the 2nd leg of a back to back for the Trail Blazers as they will be in Brooklyn on Friday night.
The Trail Blazers youth has given them some energy and they used that energy last time out as they defeated Utah on Wednesday 99-85.
Damien Lillard has been the spark to ignite this team and he came oh so close to a triple double in the win. Lillard finished with 21 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds in the win.
Even though he came short of a triple double, Lillard finished with his 8th double-double of the season, which is already a career high for him. He’s still not added a triple double to his young resume however.
His partner in crime, CJ McCollum also had another phenomenal game. McCollum has been the key to this Trail Blazers team as he seems to be one of the few consistent contributors to Lillard.
McCollum finished with 15 points, 8 assists, and 3 rebounds in the win.
The 76ers have been bad all season long. They finally put together a first half that got the fans excited as they absolutely dominated the Bulls from the opening tip.
Then, they came back to reality. After leading by 20+ points the 76ers came completely flat out of the half. Chicago outscored them by 14 points in the 3rd quarter and forced overtime to eventually grab a 4 point win.
Ish Smith continued to make a name for himself as he put in 24 points and added 8 assists.
The 76ers got a lot of bench contributions, including Robert Covington who played one of his best games this season. Covington finished with 25 points and 6 rebounds.
Philadelphia got contributions of 25 points (Covington), 10 points (McConnell), 8 points (Noel), and 7 points (Thompson).

Free NBA Prediction:
The 76ers have been horrid this season, but it was fun to see them play well against a good Chicago Bulls team for at least one half.
They have plenty of potential, but are still so far away. They’ll have a chance here to keep this close as Portland isn’t as young of a team, but still rather youthful.
Look for the energy to be high in this one and for Damien Lillard to maybe grab that first career triple double.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Philadelphia +6
The 76ers will come out guns blazing here as they know they have a chance to play with this Trail Blazers team.
The bench will once again be a major factor for them as they simply need the same or even better production from them.
