PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The 76ers are one win away from moving onto the second round.

The Sixers take on the Bulls tonight in Chicago holding a three games to one lead in their first round playoff series.  The Sixers spent much of Monday watching film.  Despite winning three straight in the series, Coach Doug Collins says there is always room for improvement. “You watch after a win so you can point things out, and guys get a little different sense of how we can do things better,” he said.  “The longer you go into a series, the better you have to execute.”

Guard Jrue Holiday said the team is loose and doesn’t feel the pressure of having the chance to knock off the Bulls, but he did talk about the importance of finishing the series tonight. “This is my first time being in this position.  I’m just really excited.  I’d rather just take care of it there and come home and rest,” he said.

Andre Iguodala says the Sixers have had a more positive attitude heading into the playoffs after going through a rough stretch during the season. “Winning definitely helps.  We had a rough patch in the second half right after the all star break, but things are kind of turning for us,” he said.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke to’s Tom Moore about this evening’s game. Listen here:

Game Five tips off in Chicago at 9:30pm ET tonight.  If the Bulls win, Game Six will be in South Philadelphia on Thursday.
