On Tuesday night, the Chicago Bulls will face elimination as they host the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 of the their opening-round series in the 2012 NBA playoffs. The Bulls have been hit hard by injuries in this series and despite entering the postseason as heavy favorites to at least make it to the Eastern Conference finals, they are now one loss away from being sent home until next season.
The Sixers hold a 3-1 lead in the series and are eager to complete the upset as soon as possible. The Bulls will be swinging from their heels on Tuesday, attempting to keep the offseason at bay for at least one more game and trying to avoid being eliminated on their home court.
Tuesday's Game 5 will tip off at 9:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on NBA TV.
