Beleaguered Bulls Try to Move on Without Rose
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls took flight for Philadelphia without both a series lead and superstar guard Derrick Rose.

They counted on having both after the first two games against the No. 8 seed 76ers.

Rose's torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee cost him the postseason and any chance the No. 1 Bulls had of sweeping the Sixers in the best-of-seven series.

Rose's absence in Game 2 was the break the Sixers needed to became the first No. 8 in the East to win a game on the road since 2003. The Sixers head home and are ready to show Philadelphia they're more than a minor speed bump in Chicago's playoff run.

Game 3 is Friday night and Game 4 Sunday in Philadelphia. The best-of-seven series is tied 1-1.
