The Bulls have won nine of their last 10 regular-season games against the 76ers, who rallied from 20 points down on Nov. 2 to halt a five-game skid against Chicago in a 107-104 win in Philadelphia.

There would be no comeback this time.

Spencer Hawes, who averaged 19 points and 13 rebounds in his last two games against Chicago, was largely ineffective. The 7-foot-1 center had nine points and six rebounds.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 10 points and dished out five assists. He had 26 and 11 in the November meeting.

Chicago missed its first six field goals, but settled in quickly, making five of its next six.

Boozer and Kirk Hinrich were each called for technical fouls in the first quarter. Four technical fouls were called throughout the game.

Philadelphia guard Tony Wroten sprained his right ankle in the second quarter when he stepped on Nazr Mohammed's foot awkwardly, staying on the ground for a couple minutes. He limped off the court gingerly with the help of his teammates and did not return.

Notes: The Bulls agreed to trade point guard Marquis Teague to the Brooklyn Nets for F Tornike Shengelia, a person with knowledge of the deal said Saturday. Teague was dressed but did not play. "Marquis is a good, young player. He's had some good moments," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "He's had some moments that he can obviously do better, but that's to be expected. When you come into this league as young as he is, that's what you're going to get. He's much further along today than he was when he was first drafted." . Philadelphia F/C Lavoy Allen (left knee) scored six points in 15 minutes, playing for the first time since Jan. 7. He had missed four games.
