The Chicago Bulls break out their passports as they head to north to take on the lowly Raptors.
With the Chicago Bulls still severely banged up, and with the Miami Heat hot on their heels for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls could use a game against the Toronto Raptors. Well, how about two? The Bulls will head to Toronto for the first game of a de facto home-and-home (Toronto will be in the Windy City on Saturday) without Richard Hamilton and, barring a total surprise, without Derrick Rose. But, Luol Deng and C.J. Watson will be in the line up, and the Bulls have shown the ability to play well in Rose's absence.
