The Philadelphia 76ers answered some questions and furthered their case to be considered among the league's elite on Wednesday night. Led by Andre Iguodala, they took down Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls by a final score of 98-82.
It was their fourth straight win since a Jan. 25 overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets. These Bulls were no Nets. They owned an NBA-best 18-5 record before tonight's loss.
Iguodala stole the evening, leading the way with 19 points. He threw in nine rebounds and four assists in the effort. That bested Derrick Rose's 18 points.
Thaddeus Young also had 19 points for the Sixers. Lavoy Allen and Lou Williams had 14 points each, all off the bench. Still, it was Iguodala who walked off the court to a standing ovation from the audience.
Chicago never got closer than 12 points.
On Friday, it's a rematch with the Miami Heat, who beat the 76ers 113-92 on Jan. 21. Iguodala was limited to four points in that game.
