On Sunday, February 6th, the Philadelphia 76ers are on the road to face the Chicago Bulls for the third of four matches this season. Philly has won both prior meetings on November 3rd (103-98) and 6th (114-105). They’ll play once more with Philly hosting on March 7th.
Both teams played on Friday with the 76ers losing 98-107 to the Mavericks while the Bulls completed a back-to-back set losing in overtime to the Raptors (127-120) and beating the Pacers 122-115.
Last season, the teams played three times with the 76ers sweeping the regular-season series and haven’t lost to the Bulls since March 6th of 2019 on a current nine-game winning streak. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Bulls in 129 of their 235 matches.
The 76ers have dropped to two games behind the Bulls for first place having lost two games in a row to the Wizards and Mavericks and will look to get back on track facing one of their favorite opponents.
That they haven’t lost to the Bulls in nine meetings should bolster their confidence. Factor in that Joel Embiid feasts when facing Nikola Vucevic and it bodes well for them to break back into the win column.
In the loss to the Mavericks, Embiid got constant double teams but he still managed to register a double-double of 27 points and 13 rebounds plus four assists, two steals, and three blocks.
He got help from Tyrese Maxey (18), Tobias Harris (13), Georges Niang (13), and Seth Curry (11) as the other double-figure contributors but the Sixers struggled to deal with the Mavericks zone defense.
Although the 76ers led by 16 points once Dallas applied the zone they were held to 35 points in the second half.
Furkan Korkmaz (knee) and Matisse Thybulle (shoulder) are questionable to play versus the Bulls on Sunday. Shake Milton (back) is out indefinitely. Ben Simmons remains out awaiting the 76ers to find a team to meet his trade demands.
While the Bulls navigate missing key contributors they got some scheduling luck on Friday facing the similarly injury-riddled Pacers.
That allowed Nikola Vucevic copious room (especially over players) since Indy was without Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner, Goga Bitadze, and Isaiah Jackson. He responded with a massive double-double of 36 points and 17 rebounds, plus four assists, and three blocks.
DeMar DeRozan also stepped up with LaVine out due to back spasms serving up 31 points, five rebounds, seven assists, a steal, and a block. Rookie Ayo Dosunmu dropped an impressive double-double of 15 points and 14 assists.
Javonte Green (16) and Matt Thomas (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Zach LaVine (back) and Coby White (groin) are questionable for Sunday. Derrick Jones Jr. (knee), Lonzo Ball (knee), and Alex Caruso (wrist) are out between six and eight weeks each. Patrick Williams (thumb) is out for the season.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Analysis:
Every team has a club they feel they are invincible against and for the 76ers that team (or one of) is the Bulls. With Chicago hampered by injury, it should bolster the Sixers’ confidence even further.
For the Bulls, they need this win just for the psychological impact but I’m afraid they’ll have to get that boost in March when they play next.
