Who’s Playing

Chicago @ Philadelphia

Current Records: Chicago 6-1; Philadelphia 5-2

What to Know

The Chicago Bulls haven’t won a matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers since March 6 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Wednesday. Chicago’s road trip will continue as they head to Wells Fargo Center at 7 p.m. ET to face off against Philadelphia. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close game.

The Bulls strolled past the Boston Celtics with points to spare on Monday, taking the contest 128-114. The win came about thanks to a strong surge after the third quarter to overcome a 103-89 deficit. Chicago’s small forward DeMar DeRozan did his thing and had 37 points along with seven boards.

Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers typically have all the answers at home, but on Monday Philadelphia proved too difficult a challenge. Philadelphia came out on top against the Trail Blazers by a score of 113-103. The 76ers’ center Andre Drummond looked sharp as he dropped a double-double on 15 rebounds and 14 points in addition to seven dimes.

The wins brought the Bulls up to 6-1 and Philadelphia to 5-2. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Chicago enters the matchup with 6.29 blocked shots per game on average, good for fourth best in the league. But Philadelphia is even better: they come into the game boasting the second most blocked shots per game in the league at 6.86. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
