Toronto Raptors vs. Chicago Bulls
October 27 will be the first time that the Toronto Raptors are facing the Chicago Bulls since the Play-In tournament. That was the game in which the Raptors were eliminated in the postseason by the Bulls in a fashion that remains incredibly embarrassing.
One of the reasons they lost that game was due to poor free throw shots. Ironically, DeMar DeRozan’s daughter Diar was screeching every time the Raptors were at the free-throw line.
Toronto could use the loss as motivation to win the first matchup against the Bulls, where both teams will lock horns in Chicago. They will play each other two more times this season, which could make for exciting basketball due to how similarly matched both of these teams are.
Will the Toronto Raptors beat the Chicago Bulls?
This is also the first time that DeRozan plays in Toronto this season. Even in his advanced age, his scoring can put on a show. Chicago was in a similar position that Toronto was last season, as no one expects their expensive, veteran-laden roster to produce much of anything in the postseason.
Fans will have to wait two more months to see if Toronto can avenge their play-in-game loss against Chicago or not. Hopefully, Diar isn’t at the game to distract the Raptors from shooting at the line.
