Bulls at Sixers Game Blog Live

The Bulls are in Philadelphia tonight (6:30 CT, NBA-TV), trying to get to 2-1 while handing the Sixers their first loss. I'll be around again for the game,  blogging and hitting the comments. Join me down there if you'd like to be in on the conversation.

This looked like an easy win a week ago, the Sixers spent the summer getting into full-boat tank mode for next year's draft, which is supposed to be one of the best in history. But they've opened 2-0 and might just give the Bulls a game.

We'll discuss it more as it gets closer to game time.


4th Quarter: This is looking like a good game down the stretch, really no excuse for the Bulls not to win this one. Who is going to step up big-time and be the #2 option down the stretch??

The Bulls must be working out an endorsement deal with Ambien, because they are simply sleepwalking through the fourth quarter of this game.

Wow. Literally all 5 Bulls and Hawes are the players in the paint. Hawes gets the ball?

When will Thibs get our offensive lineup on the floor? Get Boozer or Gibson out and Dunleavy or Hinrich in. Get the floor spread.


3rd Quarter: Looking pretty good on offense, I think Deng is forcing things somewhat.

Just a horrible shot by Deng, why a 21-footer with 15 seconds left on the shot clock?



Halftime: The Bulls have a nice 64-49 halftime lead.


2nd Quarter:

I think Butler wants to be an All-Star AND All-Defense this season. He has started the season right where he left off, as a player who needs to be accounted for at all times.

The Bulls have pretty much made up for the lack of offense we saw in the first two games,


1st Quarter:

Decent start on the road for the Bulls, getting pretty easy shots most every time down the floor, they just aren't hitting them yet.

Very nice 2-man game with Deng and Taj. If Taj can hit that jumper, he'll get a lot of NBA 6th Man of the Year consideration.

Easily the Bulls' best quarter of the season so far.

    Don Ellis started covering sports professionally when he was 15. The same year (1980), as a student assistant at Seeger Memorial High School in West Lebanon, IN, he was one of the first in the world to use, study and implement analytics in basketball. He attended Daytona State College and Ball State University, and some of his past credits include InsideHoops (NBA Runaround: The NBA According to Ellis) and ESPN Florida (The Florida Sports Reporters), where he was fortunate enough to work with many rising stars, including NFL Network's Dan Hellie, Redskins coach Jay Gruden, Magic radio and TV personality Dante Marchitelli, and WSB-TV (Atlanta) Sports Director Zach Klein. In addition to running the Bullsville blog and officiating basketball, baseball and football for the KHSAA, he is also a bass player and vocalist who writes and produces music in his spare time (you may remember his internet hit "I Hate Eddy Curry"). He's a 3rd-generation Cubs fan, a Bulls fan since the days of Van Lier and Sloan, and a life-long New England Patriots fan. He's seen Primus 9 times and thinks Les Claypool walks on water. By far his greatest accomplishment is being a father of three and grandfather of one.
