Bulls 100, Toronto 93
Pau Gasol recorded another double double with 27 points and 11 rebounds to pace five Bulls in double figures as they used a 35-14 third quarter to pull away from the Raptors. The Bulls remain undefeated on the road and lead both the Central Division and Eastern Conference standings with a 7-2 record.
Jimmy Butler scored 21 points and Derrick Rose added 20 for Chicago but the spotlight was on Rose before and after the game. Rose responded to criticism for his comments earlier this week he was looking at life after basketball as it pertained to his playing time this season by saying he could care less what critics thought, then suffered a hamstring injury with 1:41 left in regulation. Rose's latest injury is being assessed day by day.
