March 15, 2014 | Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

For the third time in their last four games, the Sixers hung with an Eastern Conference playoff hopeful late into the fourth quarter, but unfortunately the results were the same Wednesday night.

It was a three-point game with under five minutes to play, but the Chicago Bulls prevailed in the waning minutes of the game, leaving Wells Fargo Center with a 102-94 victory, their 38th of the season. For the Sixers, it was their 22nd consecutive loss.

Thaddeus Young led the way with 24 points (10/19 FG, 4/7 3FG). Michael Carter-Williams finished with 16 points (7/16 FG), nine rebounds, and seven assists, Tony Wroten had 17 points, seven assists, and six rebounds, and Byron Mullens scored 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting, with 10 of those points coming in the final frame. 

The Sixers return to action Friday night against the New York Knicks at Wells Fargo Center.
