Chicago Bulls vs Toronto Raptors

April 12, 2013

TSN2 - 7:00 PM EST

Considering the lack of a lottery pick, the lack of a playoff option, and generally, the way the 2012-13 season is ending for the Toronto Raptors, this game was hardly a must-see event to begin with.

Suddenly though, we could be in for somewhat of a D-League showcase as both the Raptors and their opponent tonight, the Chicago Bulls, missing numerous key pieces.

For the Dinos, Jonas Valanciunas is out with neck issues so Aaron Gray gets the start in his stead, and Landry Fields (strep throat) and Terrence Ross (ankle) will also sit.

For the Bulls, they're of course without Mr. Rose but also don't have the services of Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson.

However this one shouldn't be an easy Raptors' W. After all, the club barely beat Chicago last time the teams met, and the Bulls pulled off a big upset in their last match, stopping the Knicks' 13 game winning streak...
