November 2, 2013 (AP) – Rookie Michael Carter-Williams had 26 points and 10 assists and Spencer Hawes added 18 points and 11 rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers continued their stunning start to the season, beating the Chicago Bulls 107-104 on Saturday night.
Pegged to be one of the league’s worst teams, the Sixers (3-0) have opened the season with wins over Chicago, Washington and two-time defending champion Miami.
Carlos Boozer led the Bulls with 22 points and 10 rebounds and Luol Deng had 20 points.
Still dealing with neck soreness, Derrick Rose finished with 13 points and six assists for Chicago.
After trailing by as many as 18 points in the second half, the Sixers took a 100-99 lead with 3:29 left when Carter-Williams picked up a loose ball and calmly laid it in. It was the Sixers’ first lead since 11-10.
