The Philadelphia 76ers open the second half of the season on Thursday as they take on the Chicago Bulls, and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place. The Sixers will look to continue their push for the No. 1 seed in the East.

They will have to do so against a solid Bulls team that will want to take advantage of the Sixers missing their star duo, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. The two are in the league’s health and safety protocols, but the hope is Embiid can return for Philadelphia’s game on Friday if he continues to test negative while Simmons can return on Sunday. In the meantime, Tobias Harris will have to hold down the fort on offense.

“We have a great leader and Tobias Harris, as far as his veteranship,” said Dave Joerger who filled in for Doc Rivers at practice on Wednesday. “Dwight Howard and those kinds of guys and the guys got their work done. Still getting some shots and then we’ll get after it.”

Here’s when and where you should tune in to see the matchup:

  • Date: Thursday, March 11

  • Location: United Center, Chicago
