CHICAGO - The 76ers got a glimpse of what they had hoped to get out of their center position this season, only the person who produced the monster game at the United Center on Thursday night played for the Chicago Bulls. The Sixers were victimized by a mammoth triple-double from Chicago center Joakim Noah, who single-handedly wreaked havoc with 23 points, 21 rebounds and 11 blocks to lead the Bulls to a 93-82 victory over the Sixers at the United Center. The loss extended the Sixers' season-high losing streak to seven games, and it reduced their ever-shrinking playoff hopes even more.

CHICAGO - Third from worst may still get you first, but it's only a 15.6 percent chance. The 76ers will have at least the third-best odds to land the top pick in the May 19 NBA draft lottery after securing the league's third-worst record with a 114-107 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night at the United Center. It's a dubious honor, especially for a squad that fought hard against the Bulls. But given that the Sixers are about to complete the second season of a two-year tank, securing the third-worst record is welcomed.

The question and the hype have dogged the Chicago Bulls all season. Could they become the first team in the NBA to win 70 games? The answer apparently is yes, and it could come tonight in Milwaukee. The Bulls can't wait. The 70-victory mark should be a virtual lock. Chicago already has beaten the Bucks three times this season. And of its other three remaining opponents - Detroit, Indiana and Washington - only the Pacers have beaten the Bulls. In other words, it will happen.

CHICAGO - The story of Robert Covington's unlikely success is best illustrated by his being cut from the McArthur Middle School team in the fifth, sixth, and eighth grades. He probably would have also been released in the seventh grade had his parents not pulled the plug first due to them being unhappy with his school work. But the native of Chicago's West Side, who moved to nearby Bellwood, Ill., at the age of 9, is scheduled to show folks here that dreams do come true with a lot of hard work.

TODAY MARKS the beginning of free agency in the NBA, but it doesn't appear that the 76ers will be big players during the time. A source indicated that the team would do what it can to improve the team, but didn't expect it to be major players. It was reported yesterday that Chicago Bulls restricted free agent Jimmy Butler did have an interview set up with several teams, including the Sixers, but canceled, once Chicago offered him a deal of $90 million over five years. The Sixers did not extend an offer to swingman Glenn Robinson III, allowing him to become a free agent.
