DeMar DeRozan has done what he did Monday in Toronto many times before. On the same court to boot.
But to author stabilizing, 4th-quarter heroics for his new team is a big reason the Bulls are the East’s only unbeaten team.

Final: Bulls 111, Raptors 108
Awesome performance by DeMar DeRozan, who finished with 26 pts against former team. Put Bulls on his back down stretch, scoring 11 in fourth quarter

Live ball timeouts are so dumb. How can traps or presses or anything ever work. Get in trouble, just call timeout, or have your coach call it for you, as Donovan just did for LaVine who walked into an obvious trap. Imagine being able to cal TO on a blitz you didn’t pick up – 9:53 PM

Bulls are 20-20 from the FT line – 9:49 PM

Giannis had 30-10-9, Middleton scored 27 in a 119-109 win. Goga Bitadze (7p, 9r) was effective and played the entire 4th. Brogdon scored 25.
Pacers now 1-3 with the Raptors, Nets up next. – 9:34 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Bulls 92, Raptors 80 after 3
VanVleet’s got 14 assists but 6 turnovers.
Somewhat slow, sloppy game so far and after tonight, the Raptors will only have 78 regular season games left to figure it out and play better.
Oh, and get SIakam and Yuta back – 9:16 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
92-80 Bulls after 3. The Raptors are not going to win many games they turn the ball over 10 more times than their opponent. In fact, they might win 0 games like that! – 9:15 PM

Bulls are on fire. 12-2 run in the 3rd..Lonzo with 5-3s. Vucevic: 14-7. LaVine: 11-3-4, Toronto 13 turnovers= 18 Bulls points. – 8:53 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Every time the Bulls get out into an open court fastbreak it feels like the defender’s life is in jeopardy. – 8:53 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Bulls 73, Raptors 53 with 9:01 left to play in the third quarter in Toronto.
Chicago looks good again in this one. Scrambling defensively (8 steals). Sharing it offensively (18 assists). Valuing the basketball (three turnovers). Shaping up to be another good win if this holds. – 8:53 PM

Bulls have 14 assists to just 3 turnovers.
They’ve also scored 13 points off Raptors’ turnovers.
Both of these stats are early-season trends. – 8:44 PM
Stephen Noh @StephNoh
Bulls offense was finally starting to cook in that first half. 127.1 offensive rating per @Ben Falk, that’s in the 92nd percentile.
Saw the Bulls taking advantage of Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan’s plus passing ability, hitting a lot of cutters. pic.twitter.com/VFVjfeGrHf8:40 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Best the Raptors’ offence has looked so far this season (granted, low bar). The problem: turnovers (10), missed opportunities under the rim and in transition, and a step slow on closeouts. Bulls lead 61-51 at the break. Trio of DeMar/Lonzo/Vuc with 35 points. Trent with 12. – 8:38 PM
Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Maybe the key numbers for #Bulls in 1stH: 14 assists, 3 turnovers. Lonzo going 4-for-6 from 3 doesn’t hurt either. Bulls lead Raptors 61-51 at half – 8:34 PM
Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls
Bulls 61-51 at half. Bulls have scored 13 points off 10 Raps turnovers. Bulls 14 assists 3 turnovers.
@DeMar DeRozan with a terrific half of 11-3-5. Ball with 4-3s ( 12pts 3 assists-2 steals. Vouch with 12pts and 5 reb. – 8:33 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Solid first half for the Bulls. DeRozan doing bad things to his old team. Zach LaVine playing the role of max decoy again. He’ll turn it on when he feels it’s foot on the throat time. – 8:32 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Bulls began play 30th in 3PA/g (25.7), 25th in 3PM (10.7), but 3rd in 3P% (41.6)
Asked Billy Donovan about this pregame; said he’d like to get more 3s up, but doesn’t want to compromise shot quality
At halftime, Bulls are 7-16 from 3. Lot of good looks. Lonzo leading way at 4-6 – 8:32 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Bulls 61, Raptors 51 at half
Ball 12 points, 4 3-pointers
Vucevic 12 points, 5 rebounds

DeRozan’s got 12, Trent has 12

Bulls by 7, Raptors kicking the ball all over the place (9 turnovers) and are playing too slow – 8:23 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Barnes with no VanVleet or Dragic. – 8:19 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
LaVine cracks scoring column at 5:21 of 2nd. Slow starts have been the norm lately for him.
Fred VanVleet has yet to score for Raptors. – 8:19 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Bulls by 4, seven minutes to the half, Raptors keep missing shots in the restricted area, which is a troubling habit – 8:14 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
So when I call for PWill to be more aggressive weeks ago, I’m an ass-hat. Now that everyone is … it’s OK. Just so I know the rules. – 8:14 PM

That’s second time Dragic has failed to capitalize on a tailor-made transition opportunity with numbers. Remember those plays if the game is close in final minutes. – 8:11 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Scottie Barnes for Patrick Williams? – 8:06 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
DeMar DeRozan, back in Toronto, leads Bulls in scoring after first quarter. 11 points and is 2-3 from 3-point range – 8:06 PM
