Bulls vs 76ers Free Pick May 10, 2012

May 09, 2012

The Chicago Bulls pulled out a win Tuesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers to stave off elimination. The Bulls won 77-69 in a very low scoring game. The series is now 3-2 in favor of Philly and returns to Philly for the sixth game. Both teams shot terribly from the field with Chicago only making 41% of their shots and the 76ers only hitting on 32%.

The Bulls are still playing shorthanded, but hope to have top rebounder Joakim Noah back from his ankle injury for this game. Picking up the slack for the Bulls has been Luol Deng who scored a game high 24 points and had eight rebounds. The 76ers got a great overall game out of Stephen Hawes who scored 11 points but grabbed 14 rebounds and blocked two shots. Jrue Holiday once again led the Sixers in scoring with 16.

The Bulls experimented with Taj Gibson and Ronnie Brewer on the court at the same time for over 20 minutes in the game and it seemed to work, as the Bulls outscored the 76ers in that span by 12 points and the 76ers could only manage to shoot 19% from the field. Over the entire game, the 76ers had 80 half court sets on offense and could only score on 22 of them.

The 76ers will have to do something about the Bulls’ defense if they hope to win one of the last two games in the series to move to the next round. Carlos Boozer has come up big for Chicago as he scored 19 points and led the team with 13 rebounds in Tuesday’s win.

The line opened shortly after the Bulls win Tuesday night with the 76ers as a 2 ½-point favorite and is holding there. The total is at just 172. Smart money will take the Bulls to pull out another victory and take the series to a seventh game at home. UNDER bettors will cash out on this defensive struggle.
