2012 NBA Playoffs, Bulls Vs. 76ers: Philly Comes Home With Pressure To Win Game Six

The Philadelphia 76ers will have to wait a few more days to try to close out the Chicago Bulls again after falling short 77-69 in Game Five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

Philly will have perhaps its best chance to do so when it comes back to the Wells Fargo Center for Game Six. However, it was a disappointing loss Tuesday night considering the Sixers held the Bulls to just 77 points.

Philly head coach Doug Collins knows his team just needs to refocus all of its energy on the task remaining at hand, according to ESPN.com.

"You can't let one game all of a sudden get you spinning in the wrong direction," Collins said. "We didn't expect to beat the Bulls four straight. This is a damn good team."

Even without Derrick Rose, Chicago has the talent to win this series if the 76ers don't come out very charged up for Thursday's affair.
