Money in the bank… that is the Philadelphia 76ers (27-16) at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Chicago Bulls (15-28) were the latest to feel the wrath of Philly at the Wells Fargo Center with the home team improving to lights out, 20-2 in their home arena.
The Bulls held a one-point lead at the half, 47-46 before the Philly defense took over and rookie Matisse Thybulle took over to shut down the Bulls’ biggest threat, Zach Levine to only 11 first-half points.
Levine finished with 28 points and Coby White had 14 to pace the Bulls.
For Philly, it was the usual suspects with Furkan Kormaz leading the way with a 24 point night aided by a 20 point contest from Al Horford and the normal double double from Ben Simmons with a 20 point, 11 rebound performance.
Not to be lost in the euphoria was a terrible technical foul on the Philly boys.
Immediately after a Kormaz three-pointer, Philadelphia was cited with six players on the court which, of course, took the points off the board and gave Chicago a free throw.
