2012 NBA Playoffs, 76ers Vs. Bulls Score: Sixers Trail 79-66 After Third Quarter

Through three quarters, the Philadelphia 76ers trail the Chicago Bulls by 13 points. The first seed Bulls have simply been too over-powering for the eighth seed Sixers to do much, besides hang around. They've trailed by 8-10 for most of the contest.

Etlon Brand is tied with Richard Hamilton for a game-high in points with 19 points. Jrue Holiday and Thaddeus Young are also in double digits for the Sixers.

For my money, the most impressive Sixer in the third quarter was second year guard, Evan Turner. Turner started the game on the bench, but was inserted into the starting lineup in the second half, replacing Jodie Meeks. His ball-handling and dribble penetration have been impressive against the Bulls stingy defense. He was also part of the following skirmish:
