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.

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.

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.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 28 points, Damian Lillard added 24, and the Portland Trail Blazers completed a season sweep of the Bulls with a 99-89 victory on Thursday night in Chicago. Portland improved to 10-25 on the road to take the season series with the Bulls for the first time since the 2008-09 season.

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.

Marco Belinelli made a game-winning jumper with 3.1 seconds left as the Chicago Bulls extended their Friday night road show by beating the Celtics, 100-99 in overtime, in Boston. Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 20 rebounds, and Joakim Noah added 14 points and 13 boards as the Bulls won their 14th straight road game on a Friday. Elsewhere: Kemba Walker had 25 points and eight rebounds for the Charlotte Bobcats, who snapped a five-game skid with a 106-100 win over the Magic in Orlando.

CARLOS BOOZER had 13 points and 12 rebounds, Joakim Noah gutted his way through a foot injury to make three fourth-quarter baskets, and the visiting Chicago Bulls beat the Brooklyn Nets, 90-82, on Monday night to even their first-round series at one game apiece. Luol Deng bounced back from a poor opener with 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls, who became the first team to win a road game this postseason. Chicago held the Nets to two baskets in the third quarter to build a big enough lead to hold off a charge in the fourth.

CARLOS BOOZER had 29 points and 18 rebounds, Nate Robinson made the go-ahead basket with 22 seconds left, and the visiting Chicago Bulls overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets, 92-90, on Thursday night. Jimmy Butler had 16 points and 10 rebounds, Luol Deng scored 18 points, and Robinson finished with 12 as the Bulls shook off the absences of five key players to keep Indiana from clinching the Central Division title they've won the last 2 years. Deron Williams had 30 points and 10 assists for the Nets, who had a disappointing return home from an eight-game road trip.

'IT JUST FELT so strange. I can't put my finger on it. I've been in this league a long time and I've never felt anything like it. It just felt weird. " That was how 76ers forward Luc Mbah a Moute described his team's offense wednesday night in a 104-95 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls, which dropped the Sixers to 14-50. The numbers back up Mbah a Moute's assessment. Consider: * The Sixers had 16 assists on 36 made field goals. * They shot a floor-record 41 three-pointers, making only 11. * They went close to 9 minutes without scoring a field goal, missing 14 straight field-goal attempts during that time.

The 76ers entertained another undermanned team Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. This time, the Chicago Bulls were without three injured starters in point guard Derrick Rose (right knee), shooting guard Jimmy Butler (left-elbow sprain), and center Joakim Noah (left knee) along with their sixth man, Taj Gibson (left ankle). But unlike in Saturday night's win against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sixers were unable to capitalize. Aaron Brooks had a lot to do with that. The point guard finished with a game-high 31 points to lead the Bulls to a 104-95 overtime victory.

AS HAS BEEN the case for the duration of this current rebuild, the Sixers fight. At times - such as last night - they're undermanned, undersized, underskilled, but they'll make the opposition work for 48 minutes. That was the case when the Sixers welcomed the Chicago Bulls - one of the Eastern Conference's best team - to town and nearly erased a 16-point fourth-quarter deficit, before running out of time, letting the Bulls escaped with a 118-115 victory. A three-pointer from Chris Johnson got the Sixers within a point with 5 seconds to play after Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich uncharacteristically missed a pair of free throw attempts.

CHICAGO - The losing has been long, painful, and often embarrassing. Now, it's close to being historic. The 76ers are two losses away from tying the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers' record for futility. The Sixers' losing streak reached 24 games on Saturday as Joakim Noah scored 20 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 91-81 victory at the United Center. The Sixers (15-55) have the second-longest losing streak in NBA history behind Cleveland. They have yet to win since former teammate Evan Turner hit a buzzer-beater at Boston on Jan. 29 and have dropped a mind-boggling 34 of 37. "At the end of the day, we are going to get over the hump," Thaddeus Young said about snapping the losing streak.

THE BRACKETS have been passed around (for amusement purposes only, of course) and most of us have made our selections for the NCAA Tournament. Players are no different. Like many others, they keep an eye on March Madness mostly with their attention focused on the colleges they attended. "I really don't care who's going to win it," said guard Darius Johnson-Odom. "Since Marquette isn't in it, I really don't have any interest. I don't know. I guess I'll go with North Carolina State [citing an acquaintance for his reasoning]

DEFENSE. It has been the hot topic on the mind of 76ers head coach Brett Brown practically since he took over this team in August. He knew that he had no real inside presence to protect the rim, so doing that would have to be a total team effort. The plan was to protect the paint at all cost and get out on outside shooters as quickly as possible. Another problem: It became painfully obvious to Brown that he didn't have the quickest of wing players to close the gap and protect the lane to the outside shooters.

CHICAGO - Talk about a double-whammy for the 76ers. They were routed by the Chicago Bulls, 103-78, on Saturday night at the United Center. And in the process, sixth man Tony Wroten suffered what appeared to be a serious right-ankle sprain. So in the end, the Sixers (13-27) lost their sixth game in seven contests and their best player off what had already been a thin bench. Shooting guard James Anderson also left the game with 4 minutes, 20 seconds left after getting kneed in his lower back.
