All five Bulls starters were in double figures as they put away the Raptors, 96-80, at the Air Canada Centre. Luol Deng led the way with 19 points and nine rebounds, while Joakim Noah wasn't far behind with 18 points and nine boards. Chicago took an 11-point lead in the first quarter and never looked back, improving to 4-and-3. DeMar DeRozan tallied a game-high 37 points, but only had one rebound and one assist in the loss. Rudy Gay chipped in 20 points. Besides DeRozan and Gay, Toronto only scored 23 points. The Raptors shot 35-percent from the field and dropped to 4-and-6.
Derrick Rose did not play for the Bulls due to a hamstring injury. He may play tonight when Chicago hosts the unbeaten Indiana Pacers. WRHL'S Pre-Game Show begins at 6:30 on Newstalk 1060.
