[CHICAGO] — The Chicago Bulls played host to the Philadelphia 76ers last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 107-117 defeat. The loss bumps Chicago's record down to 34-39 on the season, while the victory gives Philadelphia a 27-45 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Bulls would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

Team results aside, a monster night from Jimmy Butler is all that fans will be talking about as they process the contest. Butler pumped out a stat line of 36 points, 7 rebounds, 11 assists, 0 blocks and 3 steals in 42 minutes on the night, quantifiable proof of his place among the top tier of NBA players. Most importantly, the 76ers managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Butler keeps producing at this rate and Philadelphia keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Chicago didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Dario Saric did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 32 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Bulls can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Chicago wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the . The 76ers, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Chicago Bulls.
