Tobias Harris scored 21 points, Seth Curry added 20, and the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Chicago Bulls 106-94 on Monday night.

Philadelphia built a large third-quarter lead and then held on to maintain its lead over the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference.

“I wasn’t happy,” 76ers coach Doc Rivers said. “That’s two nights in a row that our bench has come in and kind of given up leads. It’s something that we can fix. They just didn’t play well.”

The 76ers had five starters score in double figures. Ben Simmons led the way with 15 points, Danny Green added 14, and a relatively quiet Joel Embiid finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Coby White scored 23 points for the Bulls, who were missing Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic for the second game in a row. Thaddeus Young scored 13 points in the team’s fourth straight defeat and sixth in a row. Chicago remained in 12th place in the East.

“I thought our guys kept battling and kept fighting,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan said. “I think that this is a good character group. I would hope each and every game we try to put our best foot forward and continue to compete and do the best while we’re out there.”

Philadelphia led by as many as 23 points in the third quarter and by as many as 20 to begin the fourth. But, midway through the fourth period, Chicago went on a 24-5 run to pull within 88-87.

Philadelphia built a large third-quarter lead and then held on to maintain its lead over the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference.

The 76ers responded with a 12-4 run, highlighted by Harris’ floater that made the score 100-91 with less than two minutes remaining. Philadelphia was playing the second of a back-to-back after outlasting San Antonio in overtime a night earlier.

“It’s always good to get reps,” Curry said. “You don’t want to have setbacks like you did tonight, but like I said yesterday, it’s always good to get reps toward the end of the game.”

The Sixers never trailed in the game. Curry opened the scoring with a 20-foot jumper and finished the first quarter with 11 points.
