Sixers beat Bulls for third straight game, match 1994 Nuggets record
From Elias: The 76ers have the Bulls on the brink of elimination after winning three straight games following the season-ending injury to Derrick Rose. Philadelphia is the first eighth-seeded team to win three straight NBA playoff games since the Knicks won six in a row during the 1999 postseason, which also followed an abbreviated regular season. New York won its first-round finale at Miami that year, before sweeping a four-game series against the Hawks and taking the first game of the Conference Finals against the Pacers. The 76ers are the first #8 seed to win three straight playoff games against a #1 seed since the Nuggets won the last three games of their best-of-five first-round series against the SuperSonics in 1994 (after trailing that series two-games-to-none).
