Philadelphia takes the duel in the elite of the East against the Bulls

The duel between Chicago and Philadelphia was eagerly awaited… and it did not disappoint. Both Joel Embiid and DeMar DeRozan showed their leadership (and class) on the floor and the matchup turned into a big action exchange in which the 76ers ended up victorious 108-119.

The center of the Sixers went up to 40 points and 10 rebounds to be uncontrollable for some Bulls who were up to 17 points down before starting the fourth quarter. They didn’t give up. By tightening their defense they managed to get closer to just four points when there were still eight minutes to go. There was a reaction. Embiid took command again and the Pennsylvanians closed out the game.

“We have beaten some of the best teams. Also, we had some losses that shouldn’t have happened, so we added and subtracted both ways. We are right there. I’ve been saying it: for us to have a chance, we have to be perfect. I have to do what I have been doing, be as dominant and maybe even more, “says the center.
