|One Victory Later, Sixers are Thinking Upset
|PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia 76ers are no longer just a mere stepping stone for the Chicago Bulls on their way to tougher battles in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
They're a major hurdle now.
Losing reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose had an immediate impact on the top-seeded Bulls in this first-round series. After dominating the Sixers in the opener, they were routed 109-92 in Game 2 Tuesday night.
Now the best-of-seven series shifts to Philadelphia on Friday night. The underdog Sixers are confident about their chances.
