Bulls drub Raptors, 104-88, take sole possession of last playoff spot

Derrick Rose led the Bulls with 26-4-7, while Joakim Noah added 18-19-7 as the Bulls rolled past the Chris Bosh-less Raptors on Sunday.

Down only 10 at halftime, I wasn’t very impressed at the lack of energy from a historically energetic Toronto crowd. By the time most fans made it back to their seats, the Raptors were down 19 with 8:00 remaining in the third quarter. This game was crucial to the Raptors’ playoff hopes and the crowd let them down. (In their defense, the team didn’t give them much to cheer for, either.)

So the Bulls have the inside track for the eighth and final playoff spot, but they have a tougher schedule (BOS, CHA) than the Raptors do (DET, NYK). Toronto holds the tiebraker, but it may not matter.
