The Philadelphia 76ers look to bounce back from consecutive losses on Saturday night against the Chicago Bulls.

The Philadelphia 76ers look to snap a two-game losing streak on Saturday night when they visit the Chicago Bulls. (8 p.m., CSN Philly)

Philadelphia fell behind the Miami Heat by 27 points at halftime on Friday night, and could not battle all the way back despite a spirited second-half comeback that brought the Sixers within four points in the fourth quarter. Evan Turner had 13 points, eight rebounds and five assists and Andre Iguodala added 11 points and 10 rebounds, but the Sixers posted an 84-78 defeat they could only blame on the first half.

Chicago has split two games since Derrick Rose (pulled groin) fell out of the starting lineup due to injury. The defending MVP is considered day to day and could possibly play against Philadelphia on Saturday. If he's unable to suit up, C.J. Watson is likely to earn another start.
