PHILADELPHIA – The Chicago Bulls beat the Philadelphia 76ers 126-112 on Friday in Philadelphia.  Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine scored 41 points with 11 of 13 3-pointers.  LaVine silenced the house with three 3-pointers in under two minutes to bring the “Bull” to 88-74 in the last three minutes of the third quarter.

Bulls center Nikola Vucevic secured 19 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists and topped his performance in the game with a triple double.

The 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey scored 26 points with six assists.  Forward Tobias Harris seconded with 22 points while Montrezl Harrell and James Harden secured 17 points each. 

The 76ers were showing weakness on the court as the Bulls trampled the “over-the-hill” forward P.J. Tucker and the loss of center Joel Embild to soreness in his left foot.
