Sixers vs Bulls: Game Four
One more win is all that is required for the lowly 76ers to topple the mighty Chicago Bulls as Spencer Hawes’ 22 points and clutch shooting powered them to a 82-89 win. Playing without not only Rose but also center Joakim Noah after he injured himself last game, the Bulls fought hard but could not stop the Sixers.
“When Spencer plays in a rhythm, he’s damn good.”
— Sixers head coach Doug Collins, on Hawes.
Carlos Boozer had another strong game, registering 23 points and 11 rebounds as the focus of the Bulls offense. Taj Gibson added 14 points and 12 rebounds as well as blocking four shots off the bench. Point guard Jrue Holiday poured in 20 and dished out 6 assists in another great performance. Could very well end up being a bit of a break out series for the young guard.
“We have to go back home and just play our game. We missed a number of open shots.”
— Chicago guard Kyle Korver.
