Sixers use late run to top Bulls, take 2-1 series lead
The Sixers ended on a 23-5 run to take a 2-1 lead in the series with Game 4
set for Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia.
Jrue Holiday scored 17 points, Evan Turner had 16 and Lou Williams added 14
off the bench, but Hawes was the star.
The 7-foot-1 center gave the Sixers the lead for good with a long jumper just
inside the three-point line with 2:11 remaining.
The top-seeded Bulls, after losing star Derrick Rose to a torn knee ligament
in Game 1, saw center Joakim Noah roll his ankle badly in the third quarter of
this one. Noah came back in the game, but eventually left for good.
Carlos Boozer had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Bulls.
