Taj Gibson tallied 19 points and 13 rebounds as the Chicago Bulls beat Philadelphia 102-94 on Wednesday in a US National Basketball Association game, extending the 76ers club-record losing streak to 22 games.
D.J. Augustin came off the bench to score 20 points for the Bulls, who have won three of their last four National Basketball Association contests.
Augustin drained a couple of key three pointers down the stretch in front of a crowd of 13,222 at Wells Fargo Center arena. Jimmy Butler chipped in 16 points.
The Sixers are just four losses away from matching the Cleveland Cavaliers' league record of 26, set in 2010-11 season.

Their last win in front of their home fans was January 15 against the Charlotte Bobcats and they are winless overall since beating the Boston Celtics on January 29.
Their victory over the Celtics came after Evan Turner hit a jumper at the buzzer. Turner nows plays for Indiana.
Thaddeus Young scored 24, Tony Wroten had 17 and Michael Carter-Williams finished with 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for Philadelphia.
Philadelphia missed 10 of their 19 foul shots and were outrebounded 52-38.
The 76ers will host the New York Knicks on Friday night, before they face the Bulls again on Saturday.
