76ers, Bulls hope to end to losing streaks

Nov 24, 2006 - 3:51 PM Chicago (3-8) at Philadelphia (4-7) 7:30 pm EST

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) - Both the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers are struggling and riding streaks they would rather not have. Something has to give.

The Sixers will try to snap their four-game losing streak Friday when they welcome in the lowly Bulls, who are carrying a five-game winless streak of their own.

Willie Green matched a season-high 24 points and Andre Iguodala registered his second career triple-double as Philadelphia came up short in Wednesday's 98-94 setback at Milwaukee.

The 76ers hope that superstar Allen Iverson, who missed the last two games after having a pair of wisdom teeth removed, will be ready to return to the court. He ranks third in the NBA in scoring at 28.7 points per game.

Kirk Hinrich had 28 points and eight assists and Luol Deng scored 22 points for the Bulls, who dropped an 113-109 decision at Denver on Tuesday. Chicago is just 1-7 on the road this campaign.

Four-time Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace put together his best overall performance of the season in Tuesday's defeat. The big man recorded his first double-double with 11 points and 16 rebounds and also blocked three shots.

The Sixers and Bulls split their four-game series last season.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
