The Philadelphia 76ers return home Friday night, as they look to take a 2-1 series lead on the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs.

Behind a dominant second half, in which they out-scored the Bulls 62-37, the Sixers won game two in Chicago, stealing home court advantage from the Eastern Conference's one seed. The big takeaway from the game, was the play of Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner, who combined for 45 points, nine rebounds and 12 assists.

Despite the Sixers' dominant performance in game two's second half, don't expect the Bulls to lay down in game three. They played well without Derrick Rose all season and owned the NBA's best road record.

TV: ESPN2

Game Time: 8:00 EST PM

Betting Line: Sixers are 1.5 point favorites
