Undefeated records on the line
The Raptors are riding a five-game winning streak heading into tonight's game. They are currently first in the Eastern conference with a 7-1 record and are 5-0 at the Air Canada Centre. A victory tonight would give the Raptors their longest home winning streak to start a season since 2003-04.
Unfortunately for the Raptors, it won't be easily obtained. Chicago has the second-best road record in the NBA, going 4-0 to start their season.
DeRozan close to personal record
Raptors guard Demar DeRozan is very close to setting his own record. He's only four points away from tying Andrea Bargnani for third on the Raptors' all-time scoring list with 6,561 points.
DeRozan had 69 points in two losses to the Bulls last season, and had only 26 points in the Raptors' two victories against Chicago.
Bulls finally healthy
The Chicago Bulls started their top lineup for the first time this season in Monday's 102-91 victory over the Pistons.
Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Mike Dunleavy, Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah are projected to start again tonight.
