The Philadelphia 76ers will be looking for consecutive victories for the first time in almost a month Sunday, as they host the Chicago Bulls in an Eastern Conference contest (7 p.m. ET on ESPN) at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (22-15) have lost six of their last eight contest, while the Bulls (30-8) are winners of 12 of their last 14.

On Friday, Philadelphia downed the Golden State Warriors 105-83, as Sixers guard Lou Williams paced all scorers with 25 points. The win was Philly's second since the All-Star break.

Meanwhile, Chicago will be trying to snap a four-game skid against the Sixers, who defeated them earlier in the season, 98-82. In the first match-up of the season, the Sixers forced 17 turnovers, however, the Bulls were without forward Luol Deng, who missed the game with a sprained left wrist.

The Bulls enter the contest as four-point favorites.
