Bulls beat Raptors for 11th straight time, 105-94”

"We need that from him, to be unselfish and get us all involved, and he really did", said McDermott, who scored 20 points and is averaging 24.0 points in his last four games against the Raptors.

Dwyane Wade sat out for the second straight game due to the right wrist injury he sustained in the Friday night loss against the Phoenix Suns, Nikola Mirotic was out with a back injury and so was Paul Zipser with his ankle injury, so the Bulls needed something....anything to fill the void. "We're excited about Ibaka coming in, but we've got other things we've got to get fixed up before he comes in — our defense, (for) one".

The Bulls took control in the second quarter, outscoring the Raptors, 34-21 for a 19-point lead at halftime, 58-39. Toronto was without Patrick Patterson and Terrence Ross, recently traded for Serge Ibaka. They're also 1-5 at the betting window inti her last six games when facing an opponent with a losing record and are 3-7 against the number in their last 10 games played on Tuesday.

The second quarter started with a Doug McDermott technical foul. G Norman Powell led the way with 13 points.

Tortrashto kept chipping away at the lead to begin the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit to ten points with nine minutes remaining in the game.

With two minutes to go and both teams already in the bonus, the Bulls found themselves up by only five points.

Tuesday's performance marked the eighth time this season Butler has attempted at least 15 free throws in a game, according to ESPN Stats & Information reseach. Michael Carter-Williams then forced a foul-hungry Lowry into an airball before Jimmy Butler drew yet another foul on offense and sank two additional freethrows to put the Bulls back up by double-digits. "We had to come out with a great competitive effort and I thought we did that". The Bulls made the Raptors say "uncle" shortly after the opening tip for their 11th straight win in the series, a 105-94 decision Wednesday at the United Center in the Bulls' first home game after their disappointing western swing.

Doug McDermott scored 20 points, Taj Gibson added 14 while Rajon Rondo and Cristiano Felicio had 12 and 10 points, respectively, for Chicago. Kyle Lowry totaled a career high 47 verbal disagreements with the officiating crew.

ABOUT THE RAPTORS (32-23): It was less than a month ago that Toronto was putting pressure on the Cleveland Cavaliers atop the East, but the recent slump and Sunday's blown lead are pushing the team back and dragging the spirits down.

While the stats show that the bench dominated the overall outcome of the game, one of the Bulls starters is thinking bigger picture.
