The Philadelphia 76ers received 26 points and 9 assists from Jrue Holiday, but it wasn't enough, as they fell to the Chicago Bulls, 96-89, on Wednesday night.

The biggest difference in the game came at the free throw line. While Chicago went 24-for-26 from the stripe, Philadelphia only attempted 11 free throws and made five of them.

Chicago's front line had its way with Philadelphia on Wednesday. Joakim Noah had 21 points and 7 rebounds, while Luol Deng finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

While Holiday led the way for Philadelphia, the 76ers also got a strong game from Evan Turner. The former Buckeye had 16 points and 8 rebounds in the defeat.

The 76ers, who are now 12-10 on the season, will look to recover on Friday night when they travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers. Philadelphia is currently hanging on to the seventh seed in the East.
