Raptors Drop Fifth Straight Game to the Chicago Bulls
The Toronto Raptors dropped their fifth straight game in a row dating back to before the All-Star break, as they lost 118-95 to the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.
The Raptors had little time to prepare for this game, as they were coming off a loss to the Charlotte Hornets, in Charlotte on Saturday.
Norman Powell continued his strong play as a starter, as he put up 32 points, five assists, and four rebounds during his 37 minutes out on the court. Kyle Lowry scored 20 points, grabbed five rebounds, and dished out eight assists in the loss. The only other Raptor in double figures on the night was Chris Boucher, as the Montréaler had 17.
The Raptors are now 0-5 since health and safety protocols have sidelined both coaching staff members along with key players. Nick Nurse gave an update on the group of players that are currently sidelined due to health and safety protocols, and he said they are likely to return later this week.
Toronto will look to get back in the win column on Wednesday, with or without their missing players, as they take on former Raptor Head Coach Dwane Casey and the Detroit Pistons.
