2012 NBA Playoffs, Bulls Vs. 76ers Game 5: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Philadelphia 76ers are one victory away from pulling off a major series upset and the accomplishment could be completed Tuesday, when the No. 8-seeded Sixers travel to top-seeded Chicago Bulls (9:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV). The Bulls, the Eastern Conference regular-season champions, face elimination after Sunday featured them losing Game 4, 89-82, and falling behind in the best-of-seven playoff series 1-3.

The Bulls are facing an up-hill battle, as they're playing without their best player, point guard Derrick Rose, who's out for the remainder of the season with a ACL tear, and center Joakim Noah, who will be out for the second straight game with a sprained ankle.

The Sixers have taken advantage of the new-found luck, as they earned three straight victories since Rose went down in Game 1. Those results could be contributed to Chicago's lack of scoring without Rose, as it scored 103 points in Game 1 and has averaged just 82.7 in their last three games.

Center Spencer Hawes is coming off a 22-points performance in Game 4, which featured 76ers' forward Jrue Holiday scoring 16 of his 20 points in the second half. Holiday is the Sixers leading scorer in the series, while Hawes is coming off back-to-back 20 points games.

To see if the 76ers can advance onto the Eastern Conference semifinals, here's the game's viewing information:

Location: United Center, Chicago, Il.

Game Time: 9:30 p.m. ET

TV Channel: TNT

Series: Sixers leads best-of-seven series 3-1.
