Philadelphia has already defeated the Washington Wizards and two-time defending champion Miami Heat to rise to first place in the Atlantic Division.“We understand what everybody has said and written about us,” first-year coach Brett Brown said. “Our guys have put in the day-to-day stuff, which has always been our message. I’m lucky I’ve found a group that enjoys each other’s company and they enjoy playing together.”Carlos Boozer had 22 points and 10 boards for Chicago, which dropped to 1-2 in the young season, while Luol Deng added 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Derrick Rose registered 13 points and six assists, but was just 4-of-14 from the field against the team he tore his ACL against in the first round of the 2012 NBA playoffs.“I would blame tonight on me,” said Rose, who wore tape around his neck for the second straight game. “Turnovers, missed shots, miscommunication – I just couldn’t get in my groove.”After trailing by as many as 18 points in the second half, the Sixers took a 100-99 lead with 3:29 left when Carter-Williams, a former Syracuse star, picked up a loose ball and calmly laid it in.
