Raptors Bully the Bulls

RAPS 110, BULLS 78
In case you missed DeMar's dunk on Brad Miller last night, here it is:

Wow. Who are these guys?  The Raptors bully the Bulls?  On the road? And on a back to back?

In a back to back situation where the Raptors normally play terrible, they put together a win, a blowout win at that, over the Derrick Rose's Chicago Bulls.  The Raps did a phenomenal defensive job for 48 minutes holding the Bulls to 20 pts and under for three quarters.

Bosh did his thing, 25 pts, 12 boards and Jarret Jack stepped up at the point guard slot when Calderon left with a groin injury.

The Bulls have been in a funk lately, dropping 4 out of their last five.  They had back to back embarassing losses, first to Lebron's Cavs and then to the Raptors last night.  Derrick Rose was held to just 9 points.

Key Notes:
  • Raps outrebounded the Bulls 53-32
  • No third quarter collapse from the Raptors last night, and managed to hold the lead throughout the game
  • Joakim Noah was ejected midway through the third quarter
  • Raps had another great defensive performance holding the Bulls to 39% shooting
  • For a Bulls perspective, check out Bulls Blog
  • DeRozan Watch: 24 minutes, 11 pts, 4 rebounds
Next up, the Raps take on the TWolves...
