If anybody has a chance to extend the series to a deciding game it's Chicago. While they may be down key players in Rose and Noah, Deng, Watson, Gibson and Boozer have stepped up their game. Philadelphia has still not been able to take advantage and because they are not explosive on offense like other opponents they weren't able to finish out the Bulls in game 5 at the United Center. Brand and Igoudala's defense have put it into gear at home while the bulk of the offense has come from Williams and Hawes.
Chicago needs to stay focused and make sure they don't relinquish leads at any point. Both teams play good defense but if the 76ers are relegated to an outside game the Bulls need to execute at the other end in transition. I expect another grind it out low scoring game this evening. Injuries have depleted Chicago's starting 5, but a win this evening could conceivably set up a deciding game 7 on Saturday.
