The Philadelphia 76ers are continuing their shocking undefeated streak by beating the Chicago Bulls at home Saturday night.
This victory defies the odds for a team that analysts had projected to barely eclipse 16 wins this season. The team has been able to rally against two of the powerhouses of the Eastern Conference first beating the Miami Heat, and now Chicago.
Much like their game Friday night against the Washington Wizards, the Sixers rallied from being down double digits to win another game in the closing minutes.
The many highlights of the game include Sixers’ first-round pick Michael Carter-Williams’ stat line. He had 26 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, and three steals.
Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes also continued their stellar seasons as well. Hawes netted a double-double, while Turner scored 20 points himself.
Great way to rally back and get the win. Couldn’t of did it without the best fans in the league. — Tony Wroten (@TWroten_LOE) November 3, 2013
The Sixers also received a compliment from Miami Heat owner Mickey Arison, whose team they upset in their season opener Wednesday night.
Congrats to the Sixers! heck of a week.

The team seems to be buying into new coach Brett Brown’s commitment to hard work on both ends of the floor.

With the team committed to working hard on and off the court, perhaps they’ll continue to turn heads.
