The Sixers have started the season with three straight victories, and Michael Carter-Williams has impressed.

The Philadelphia 76ers pulled off a 107-104 upset over the Chicago Bulls and Michael Carter-Williams put on another show in his third professional game. Carter-Williams played stifling defense against Derrick Rose and put in a game-high 26 points, along with a game-clinching behind-the-back pass to Spencer Hawes to secure the team's third straight victory.

Carter-Williams' final line on the night? 26 points, 10 assists, four rebounds and three steals for the rookie.

Rose struggled to deal with the the defensive pressure from Carter-Williams and had five turnovers in the fourth quarter alone. He finished with 13 points, eight turnovers total and went 4-of-14 from the field.

Hawes finished the game with 18 points on 8-or-11 shooting. Evan Turner had 22 points along with three rebounds and three assists. Tony Wroten played 22 minutes off the bench and finished with 11 points, five rebounds and this big block against Rose.

Luol Deng finished with 20 points and Carlos Boozer put in 22, but the Bulls were outscored 58-40 through the second half.
