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 76ers can now exhale. Their season of disarray concluded Wednesday night in typical fashion. The Sixers had a commanding 21-point cushion with 2 minutes, 27 seconds left until intermission. Yet they still lost, 115-105, to the shorthanded Chicago Bulls in the season finale for both teams at the United Center. At 10-72, the Sixers finished the season with the second-worst record in franchise and NBA history. The 1972-73 Sixers finished the season at 9-73. "You feel like the season is appropriately coming to an end," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

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 - Sam Hinkie had just been named the president and general manager a couple of weeks before he and I sat down to talk at the Quest Multisport Complex in Chicago, which was hosting the rookie combine. Before we could even exchange pleasantries or I could get out a question, Hinkie offered: "So, you want to know about my background as a player, right?" Not really, was my thought, because I had already done a little bit of checking on that. But Hinkie offered that he played ball in high school, could have played at the Division III level, or maybe even had been a walk-on in Division I. Remarkably smart, Hinkie decided instead to concentrate on his studies, and graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA from the University of Oklahoma and also earned an MBA from Stanford, where he graduated with highest honors as an Arjay Miller Scholar.

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.

The 76ers came up short in their quest to treat fans to an all-around enjoyable night. The team hired singer-songwriter Montell Jordan to sing the national anthem and perform at halftime Thursday. Actor George Lopez playfully proclaimed, "In three years, the Sixers will win the championship in the NBA" when he was introduced to the crowd. And fans kept trying to get pictures of Philly hip-hop artist Meek Mill, who was seated courtside. But the Sixers were unable to treat their fans to victory in a 115-111 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls at the Wells Fargo Center.

CHICAGO - The homecoming did not end well on the basketball court. For 76ers rookies Jahlil Okafor and Richaun Holmes, Monday marked the first time they played at the United Center against their hometown Chicago Bulls. Robert Covington, another Chicago native and Sixer, made his second appearance in the Windy City against the Bulls. Unfortunately for the trio, the game ended the same way all but one of their previous 25 had: with a loss. The Sixers fell, 115-96, dropping their record to 1-25.

THE 76ERS have now lost each of their first seven games after Monday's 111-88 setback to the visiting Chicago Bulls. If you pair it with the 10-game losing streak that finished off last season, that's 17 in a row. That's only a number to the coach and his players. That isn't what is going to define them, they insist. It's no surprise to them or anyone that this season of seven games feels more like seven months already. See, it was planned for at training camp. "We had this talk in Stockton, and the reality of it is we've had a lot of practice at this the last two years," coach Brett Brown said.

The 76ers are slipping into another dismal season. They had hoped that Monday would be the night when they secured their first victory of the season. However, it was an extremely tough task. The Sixers were without their best rebounder and defender in Nerlens Noel. And they were facing a far superior Chicago Bulls team, one they hadn't beaten in two seasons. So as expected, the Sixers played hard and even battled back with a couple of first-half runs. But they were no match once the Bulls' best players started to focus after intermission.

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 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.
