Full detailed prediction read below
Chicago lost two extreme matches against Indiana and Brooklyn. Now they occupy the 9th line with a difference of 19-32, being previously on the 8th place with 21-28. In the last 10 games, the players of Jim Boylen won and lost 5 times respectively. To get to the play-offs they need a little bit more stability.
A major problem for the Bulls are the current injuries of several key basketball players, who both score and defend. At the moment Markkanen, Porter, Carter and Gafford can’t help their teammates. In fact, the four best team scormekers after Z. Lavina being also very promising are out of the game. Now, most of the responsibility for scoring lies with LaVine, but he also can’t always demonstrate a stable high level, especially after bad news that he will not take part in the All-Star.
Toronto has now a marvelous condition: the team issued a winstrike from 10 games in a row, which allowed them to get to the second line in the east with a difference of 35-14. After the returning of Gasol (he was out of the game for several matches), Siakam, Powell and VanVleet the Raptors regained their status as one of the favorites in the East.
Who knows, perhaps they will eventually compete with Milwaukee in the final of the Conference. Toronto now has one of the best attacks and defenses in the lLgue, and the starting lineup together with bench look like one of the most equipped.

Bulls vs Raptors Prediction
The roster of Toronto is now one of the most powerful and greatly equipped in the East, as well as in the League. Siakam, Lowry, Ibaka, Gasol, VanVleet, Powell – indeed a very decorous list at Nick Nurse’s disposal. Chicago in their turn will again have problems with their squad, both in attack and defence. Toronto is on a great run and there are perhaps a few teams that could stop Canadians.
We predict a win for Toronto Raptors.
