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.
