76ers-Bulls Game 6 to tip off at 7 p.m. Thursday

The Sixers will host Game 6 of their first-round series against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Wells Fargo Center.

All three teams with clinching possibilities in the NBA on Tuesday failed to win their series in Game 5, so three games are on tap Thursday.

Sixers-Bulls opens the evening, with Atlanta at Boston at 8 p.m. and the Lakers at Denver at 10:30 p.m. The Sixers, Celtics and Lakers each have a 3-2 series lead.

The winner of the Sixers-Bulls series will face the winner of the Celtics-Hawks in Round 2.

In the other game Tuesday night, Indiana beat Orlando, 105-87, to win that series, 4-1. The Pacers await the winner of the Miami-New York series. The Heat leads, 3-1, with Game 5 on Wednesday.
