Bitter Sweet Win:

After going through a three-game losing streak the Raptors came up with a hard-fought win against the Chicago Bulls tonight, the were on a back to back playing in Philadelphia and losing to the 76ers 110-106. Tonight though was a much closer both teams were missing free throws as well as open shots, a lot of that came from the fact that both the Bulls and Raptors were coming off a back to back, Chicago played against Miami on Sunday whereas the Raptors were playing their Eastern Conference rival Philadelphia 76ers. Both teams had similar fates the previous night, tonight was definitely a hard-fought win but the road teams. Leading the way tonight for the Raptors was Pascal Siakam with 22 points, 6 rebounds 1 steal, 1 assist, and 1 block, in 39 minutes of play, guys like Norman Powell, Kyle Lowry, Chris Boucher, Serge Ibaka and O.G. Anunoby contributed to the offense tonight, From the Bulls, Zach LaVine led the way with 20 points while Wendell Carter Jr. was the second-highest scorer on the Bulls. But the game in the second half was a Bismol as far as shooting percentages go, Raptors went 34/90 for 37% whereas the Bulls were slightly better 35/89 shooting 39%. Having watched the entire game from start to finish I felt like there were easy shots that both teams missed, which may have been the reason for the close score of 93-92. Well, the Raptors won! Yes I am biased as I am a loyal raptors fan, anyway next up for the Raptors is Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers, this will be the first that Kawhi will be coming back to Toronto since he helped the Raptors win their franchise first Championship. On November 11, 2019, when these two teams met in Los Angeles Kawhi helped the Clippers get a victory over his former team, hopefully, Wednesday it will be a different result.
