Gameday: Raptors-Bulls

I'll gladly take some more clutch shooting from Hedo

One little road win and all hope is restored in Raptorland. Well, maybe. All I know is I feel a bit better after last night’s overtime win in Washington and am actually looking forward to a duel in Chicago against Chuck Swirsky and the Bulls. Check out Raptors Republic for a pretty, pretty good preview.

Another positive note is Chicago comes in on a back-to-back as well, having lost 101-87 in Cleveland last night. After seven of eight on the road, tonight’s game is the first in a string of eight of nine at the United Center for the Bulls, so their 7-10 mark thus far is actually alright considering they’ve gotten a big road chunk out of the way already. They’re currently banged up though — Tyrus Thomas and Kirk Hinrich are still sidelined with injuries — so the Raptors will look to take advantage of a shorthanded lineup.

Toronto won only matchup with the Bulls thus far this season, 99-89 at the ACC on Nov. 11. After a rough first half, they settled down and got a hand from some hellish Chicago shooting over the final 24 minutes to pick up the win.
