* The Bulls have won nine straight and 14 out of their last 15 games against the 76ers. The 76ers haven’t won a regular-season game in Chicago since defeating the Bulls 97-85 on March 28, 2011.
* The Bulls shot 57.1 percent in their 121-116 victory in New Orleans on Monday, their highest field-goal percentage in a game this season and highest since shooting 60.8 percent in a 116-103 victory over Toronto on March 25, 2015.
* With a loss tonight, the 76ers will become just the second team in NBA history to win 10 or fewer games in an 82-game season, joining the 1972-73 76ers, who went 9-73 (.110).
* In the last meeting between the two teams on January 14, Jimmy Butler scored 53 points to go along with 10 rebounds and 21 free-throws made. Butler was the first opposing player to score 50+ points at Philadelphia since Michael Jordan scored 52 in Philadelphia on November 16, 1988.
