76ers Vs. Bulls Halftime Score Update: Philly Starts Hot, Maintains Halftime Lead

After opening the game with an 11-0 run, the Philadelphia 76ers kept up their impressive play and lead the Chicago Bulls 44-38 at half.

The Bulls are having at it without Derrick Rose tonight, who continues to nurse a groin injury that has kept him out of three straight games. His absence has been felt, and Philadelphia has put on the defensive clamps, holding the Bulls to just 11 opening quarter points.

And while the 76ers defense has been its usual stout self, the offense hasn't been quite as efficient. Jrue Holiday leads all scorers with 15 points, and Philly has shot 46.2 percent from the field but just one of six from behind the three point line. Center Spencer Hawes, who has continued to work his way back from an Achilles injury, has chipped in eight points and four rebounds.
