76ers vs Bulls Free Pick May 1, 2012

April 30, 2012

The second game of the quarterfinal series between the Philadelphia 76ers and Chicago Bulls will get under way on Tuesday May 1 at the United Center in Chicago. The Bulls handled the 76ers in game one 103-92, but lost their star player in the process. Derrick Rose, the reigning MVP of the NBA, torn his ACL in the last few minutes of the game, while making a drive into the lane and passing off to a teammate.

His loss will be felt greatly by the Bulls, even though they have played 26 games this season without him. The Bulls have won 19 of those 27 games without Rose, but this is not just the regular season, it is the road to the finals.

Nevertheless, the Bulls will regroup and look to other players to carry the load. Joakim Noah has been their leader on the boards averaging 13 per game and he will have to pick up some of the scoring as well. Richard Hamilton is back from injury and he will be the court leader and get help down low from Luol Deng who scored 17 points in the first game.

The 76ers will look to Elton Brand for their scoring and rebounding. Brand had 19 points and 7 boards to lead the team in both categories in the first game. Andre Iguodala will also need to step up and not only dish out assists but score.

The Bulls may get through this first series without much difficulty not having Rose in the lineup, but as the competition gets tougher and teams play one another repeatedly, teams will find ways to shut the Bulls down.

The line opened with the Bulls favored by 9 points and has come back to a current line of 6. The total is at 176. The Bulls will win this game SU and ATS, with the total OVER.
