Through 3 Quarters

The Chicago Bulls typically have all the answers at home, but the Toronto Raptors are posing a tough problem. The Raptors have emerged as the frontrunner after three quarters and are ahead of Chicago 89-81.

Toronto has been led by power forward Pascal Siakam, who so far has 17 points and seven assists along with seven boards. Center Nikola Vucevic has led the way so far for the Bulls, as he has posted a double-double on 22 points and 11 rebounds. This makes it three consecutive games in which Vucevic has had at least 11 rebounds.

Chicago has lost 71% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

The Toronto Raptors haven’t won a contest against the Chicago Bulls since Feb. 2 of 2020, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Thursday. Toronto’s homestand continues as they prepare to take on Chicago at 7:30 p.m. ET Feb. 3 at Scotiabank Arena. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

The Miami Heat typically have all the answers at home, but on Tuesday the Raptors proved too difficult a challenge. Toronto had just enough and edged out Miami 110-106. Having forecasted a close win for Toronto, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Their shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. looked sharp as he shot 6-for-10 from downtown and finished with 33 points. The matchup made it Trent Jr.’s fifth in a row with at least 31 points.

A well-balanced attack led the Bulls over the Orlando Magic every single quarter on their way to victory on Tuesday. Chicago captured a comfortable 126-115 victory. It was another big night for their small forward DeMar DeRozan, who posted a double-double on 29 points and ten boards along with five assists.

The Raptors were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap in the teams’ previous meeting in January as they fell 111-105 to Chicago. Maybe Toronto will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
