76ers Vs Bulls: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Philadelphia looks to gain even more respect against Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls.

The Philadelphia 76ers will face a stiff test on Wednesday night against the best in the Eastern Conference, the Chicago Bulls.

The 76ers (15-6) are coming off an ugly win against the Magic in which they only scored 74 points. Andre Iguodala had a good game, recording a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds to go with six assists.

The defense was excellent though, limiting Dwight Howard and co. to just 69 points on 33 percent shooting. Philadelphia did catch a break with Orlando failing to convert at the free throw line, hitting just 10 of 22 from the stripe.

The Bulls (18-5) won't be as friendly. Derrick Rose and his mates are airtight on the defensive end and the best rebounding team in the NBA. Chicago is ranked second in scoring defense, only bested by the 76ers.

The Bulls are one of the few teams with star players and great depth. Rose gets a lot of the headlines, but with Carlos Boozer, Richard Hamilton and Joakim Noah the talent is abundant.

It will be interesting to see how the deep rotation of Philadelphia will match up. The 76ers have used their bench as a big weapon over more top-heavy teams this year. They'll grab some national attention with a win against what many feel is the best team in the league.

Doug Collins and his bunch are looking to finish the home stand with a strong finishing kick after starting out 4-1 on the seven game stretch. Miami comes to town on Friday, so this is a nice statement week for Philadelphia.
