Chicago at Toronto
Toronto (13-16) is playing really good lately and will look for its fourth straight home win after a 100-97 victory over Minnesota on Wednesday. The Raptors improved to 8-3 at the Air Canada Centre, where they have won six of seven. It s surprising how they manage this situation , because their best player C Bosh has missed 10 straight games with a sore left,and maybe could return next week.
While T.J. Ford is leading the Raptors in Bosh’s absence, Anthony Parker provided a much-needed secondary scoring option with 19 points against Minnesota on wednesday. Ford scored more than 20 in three straight games. The Raptors look like a better team this season , all players showing a lot of determination , giving 100% for their very brave objective …the playoffs.
Chicago Bulls (17-12) could be without one of their top scorers on tonight s game , L Deng who sprained his right wrist during Chicago’s 109-103 victory over Miami. Deng has a great season start ,with 17.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. For the Bulls , Ben Gordon is doing the hard work , setting a new career score high scoring 40 points on wednesday.
Last game beteewn those teams was won by the Bulls , 93-90 , in Chicago , on dec. 8. Bulls would like some of their home success to carry over to the road, where they are 4-10 this season , but they re allowing 102.0 points per game on the road, compared to 89.6 at home.
Another important thing : for the Bulls this is their 3rd game in 4 days , and tommorow they ll face Cleveland at home.
I hope that Toronto will continue their good streak , and win the game , so , i m gonna back them again.
