Bulls now up a game and a half for the 3 seed.
Bulls outscored the Raptors 39-21 in the 4th quarter. Wow.
Bulls shoot season-high 60.8 percent, sweep season series from Raptors and move 11/2 games in front for East's third seed.
Bulls will sweep 4-game season series with Toronto. Raps had lead going into 4th Q in 2 of them, outscored 86-58 in those 4th quarters
Good win for the Bulls. Came back strong down the stretch and showed a lot of toughness. Jimmy Butler leads everybody with 23 points.
When the nuclear winter has come and humanity has faded away, only two things will remain: cockroaches, and the Chicago Bulls.
Toronto about to go 2-6 against the Bulls since last season. Can you say bad matchup?
Bulls are shooting 61% for the game, 65% since the first quarter. 12-for-22 from 3 on the night
Bulls will post a fifth straight winning road record for the first time in franchise history.
The Bulls have scored on 15 of their 19 possessions this quarter. DeMar just passed to Noah, dressed in white on the sideline. c'est tout.
Snell has been huge for the Bulls tonight
Bulls have hit every big shot down the stretch. Doing everything they need to do to close this one down.
Have I mentioned the Bulls would be a less than ideal playoff match-up for the Raptors? (Lucky for them it seems unlikely)
Bulls defense truly clamping down here in the fourth. Raptors collapsing without Lowry...hell, they'd collapse with Lowry
Amir has burned by Mirotic and Gasol in the post on back-to-back Bulls possessions. Chicago leads 99-97, 4:30 left.
Hinrich corner J ties the game at 95 with 6:26 left. Bulls haven't led since 6-4, 2:33 into the game.
Bulls do not necessarily own tiebreaker over Raptors because Raptors likely will be division winner and Bulls likely will be 2nd to Cavs.
Raptors outscoring Bulls 32-18 in paint. This is the Bulls' 4th game in 6 nights. Raptors on 2nd night of a back2back. Both teams look tired
Bulls on 11-2 run, lead down to 2.
That Amir Johnson drive, basket and 3-point chance fairly well representative of very flat defensive effort thus far from Bulls.
Bulls down 9 Need to pick up defensive intensity
Raps up 4. They will probably need to get Bulls below 54% to win, I'm guessing.
Bulls outscored Raps 35-14 in 3rdQ of 1st meeting, 49-37 in 4thQ of 2nd meeting. Can't let up vs this team. Need 48 tonight. Halfway there
Solid half. Raptors bent but didnt break. Still, defence remains an issue. Bulls shot 12-of-20 in 2nd Q, 54% in half. Raps by 4 at the break
Bulls 4th in league in opponents' 3-point percentage. Raptors 6-for-9 thus far.
Bulls fans thoughts ....
Snell hits 2 buckets Bulls close to within 5
