Rose hit just 1 of 7 shots in the first quarter but went on a tear late in the second as the Bulls took a 53-42 lead to the locker room. He then scored eight in the third and hit two 3-pointers to help Chicago stay in control, even though things did get a little heated.
That happened when Noah got fouled by Turner trying to put back Deng's miss with 4:36 left in the quarter. Hamilton started jawing with Turner. Rose and Brand got involved, too.
Fans, meanwhile, started chanting "MVP! MVP!" in a nod to the rivalry between Rose and Turner that dates to their high school days. When the dust cleared, Hamilton, Brand and Rose all got technicals, and Noah hit 1 of 2 foul shots to make it 69-55.
Hamilton added two more free throws on the next possession to boost the lead to 16. After the Sixers pulled within eight, Korver nailed a 3 to start a 12-2 run that stretched into the fourth and made it 84-66. But now, the Bulls will have to make do without Rose.
"He's had a lot of injuries this year," Thibodeau said. "It's been unfortunate. But we do have more than enough to win with. Whatever the circumstances are, we'll deal with it."
Notes: The Sixers' Lavoy Allen sprained his right thumb but is expected to play Tuesday. ... This is the third playoff series between Chicago and Philadelphia, with the Bulls beating the Sixers in the 1990 and 1991 conference semifinals. ... Chicago took two of three from Philadelphia in the regular season. .. The Sixers have dropped five straight playoff series. ... Collins never earned a championship ring when he coached the Bulls. He does have some jewelry, though. "Jerry has given me six championship watches," he said of owner Jerry Reinsdorf. Collins coached the Bulls before their championship run in the 1990s.
