76ers vs Chicago Bulls
On February 19, 2021 Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center and 2021 NBA MVP Finalist Joel Embiid recorded his career scoring high 50 points against the Chicago Bulls.
The rivalry between the teams dates back well before then, though. Despite a dominant run throughout the 1990s led by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, the Sixers still have the advantage in historical head-to-head matchups with the Bulls; in 234 regular season contests, the Sixers lead 128-106. And while the postseason records skews toward the Windy City, the most recent series between the two teams in 2012 was taken by an underdog Philadelphia team featuring Jrue Holiday, Andre Iguodala, Lou Williams, and starting center (and current General Manager) Elton Brand.
The 76ers had the Bulls on their schedule for 2021-22 four times, with the Sixers taking all four for a clean sweep of the season series.

All-Star Joel Embiid recorded his seventh 40-point game of the season in the W, and added 10 rebounds, three assists, and two blocked shots in 32 minutes of action.
