Luol Deng Has 22 As Bulls Defeat Raptors 110-103

The Bulls, with only one game remaining on their preseason schedule, got 22 points from Luol Deng and Derrick Rose added 20, and they beat the Toronto Raptors on the road 110-103 in front of a crowd announced as 12,681 at the Air Canada Centre.

Yes, “Centre”, in that unusual Canadian way of spelling “Center.”

Rose also had eight rebounds and nine assists in the win, which raised the Bulls’ preseason record to 3-4, in a game that had Joakim Noah (flu) and Kyle Korver (ankle) absent.

The Bulls trailed by four points at halftime but outscored the Raptors in the third quarter by seven and in the fourth quarter by four, to ice the seven-point win. Leandro Barbosa led the Raptors with 22 points and Andrea Bargnani had 19.

The Bulls return to the United Center on Friday for their final preseason game against the Indiana Pacers. The game will begin at 7 p.m. CDT and will be televised locally in Chicago on WCIU.


Bulls Visit Raptors: Noah, Korver Out For Tonight's Game

The Chicago Bulls continue their preseason schedule by visiting the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Wednesday.

According to Chicago Breaking Sports, the Bulls will be playing without key contributors Joakim Noah and Kyle Korver:

The revolving door that is the Bulls' starting lineup continued to spin Wednesday with Joakim Noah sitting for the Raptors' game with flu-like symptoms and Kyle Korver out with a cyst in his left ankle.

Korver, in fact, may have to have surgery; SB Nation Chicago reported on this in The Deep Dish this morning:

CSN Chicago is reporting that Korver, considered day-to-day by head coach Tom Thibodeau, received a cortisone shot to quell the pain of a persistent cyst on his left ankle. And the ultimate kicker: If the shot doesn't enable Kyle to recover from the problem, he could need surgery. Although Korver isn't projected to be a starter at shooting guard, he still provides essential depth at the guard and small forward positions. His loss would hurt.

Tonight's game will be televised on CSN Chicago Plus at 6 p.m. CDT.
