The Bulls head into Philadelphia for their only national TV game of the first half of the regular season. Chicago has been on a slight roll as of late, winning three of their last four games, including back-to-back games in which they covered.

Chicago has a top-20 offense, powered by the incredibly efficient Zach LaVine. This will be an intriguing matchup because the Bulls’ improved offense under new head coach Billy Donovan will be pitted against a dominant Sixers defense.

Philadelphia’s Defensive Rating is sixth in the NBA this season, according to NBA Advanced Stats. The 76ers have struggled without center Joel Embiid manning the paint, but they bounced back with a home win over the Rockets on Wednesday night in Embiid’s return.

Philadelphia has failed to cover in their last four games and though it has had injury issues, Embiid played in three of those four games.

The Sixers are perhaps getting a bit too much respect against a newly competent Bulls team with a streaky, yet dangerous, offense. This is an idea supported by our PRO Report. Let’s take a look.
