The Philadelphia 76ers became just the fifth No. 8 seed to upend a No. 1 seed in the NBA Playoffs last night, thanks large in part to free-throw shooting. Exciting, right? Actually, it was. The Bulls’ Omer Asik missed two freebies with 7.0 seconds remaining and Philly’s Andre Iguodola made a pair with 2.2 to play.
It’s the first time since 2003 the 76ers have advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals and will face Boston.
The Bulls? Well, they wait with bated breath on Derrick Rose’s rehab.
