Game 4: Sixers 89, Bulls 82

7 May 2012

Three Stars (leaderboard)
1. Taj Gibson: 14 points (.568 TS%), 12 rebounds, 4 blocks
2. Carlos Boozer: 23 points (.471 TS%), 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals
3. C.J. Watson: 17 points (.412 TS%), 6 rebounds, 4 assists

There are teams the Bulls could consistently beat without Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and a healthy Luol Deng. But the Sixers are not among them.

Evan Turner was right: This is a great matchup for Philadelphia, one of the few teams that can match Chicago’s bench strength. Robbed of that usual advantage, robbed of their best two and a half players, the Bulls have to slog it out for 48 minutes and hope for the best.

Sunday, like Friday, they came up just short. Unless they can win three in a row, their season will come to a stunningly early end, perhaps as early as tomorrow night.

The basketball gods, more than any other factor, are the chief culprit.

Box Score

Series: Sixers lead, 3-1
Next: Game 5, Tuesday 5/8 vs. Philadelphia, 8:30 CT
