D.J. Augustin had 20 points off the bench, hitting a couple of key 3-pointers down the stretch, and the Chicago Bulls held on to beat the Sixers 102-94 on Wednesday night.
Taj Gibson had 19 points and 13 rebounds for Chicago, also off the bench, and Jimmy Butler scored 16. The Bulls have won three of their last four.
