Game 5: Bulls 77, Sixers 69

9 May 2012

Three Stars (leaderboard)
1. Luol Deng: 24 points (.632 TS%), 8 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks
2. Taj Gibson: 8 points (.508 TS%), 7 rebounds (3 offensive), 4 blocks
3. Carlos Boozer: 19 points (.455 TS%), 13 rebounds, 6 assists

One more giant defensive effort, grabbing an opponent by the throat and throttling them into submission with quick rotations, fierce traps, and hustle, hustle, hustle.

Everyone’s hurt — welcome to the club, Taj Gibson — and the backcourt still is a huge mess, with C.J. Watson and John Lucas in way over their heads and the Sixers doing a much better job defending Rip Hamilton and Kyle Korver off the ball. But the Bulls do keep fighting. Win Thursday in Philly … and it’s home for Game 7?

We can dream, can’t we?

Box Score

Series: Sixers lead, 3-2
Next: Game 6, Thursday 5/10 at Philadelphia, 6:00 CT
