This matchup includes two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference with all-stars on both sides of the court.
The Raptors have been playing very well thus far in the season and look to continue their ways.
The Bulls have been getting hit with the injury bug at times this season, but they are a serious contender in the second half of the season.
The Raptors are coming off a hot first half of the season, and also a big all-star weekend which was hosted in Toronto.
The Raptors are 3-2 in their last 5 games and have been very competitive. Toronto is averaging 104.4 and giving up 103.6 during that stretch of games.
The Raptors are led by a pair of all-stars in the backcourt. Demar DeRozan is leading the team in scoring putting in an impressive 23.4 points per game.
He is led by the quarterback of the offense Kyle Lowry who is putting up another year of good numbers with 21 points to go with 6.3 assists per game.
Toronto was last in action at Minnesota where they were defeated 117-112. DeRozan was the high scorer in the game with 35 points. Lowry also paced him with 14 points and 7 assists.
Toronto is currently in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference where they look to gain some ground on the Cleveland Cavaliers early in the 2nd half of the season.
The Bulls have not been playing up to expectations with Derrick Rose back this season.
They are a mere 1-4 in their last five contests. During this span, the Bulls are averaging 100.6 points per game and giving up a steep 110 points per game during that span.
The Bulls are led by all-star selections Jimmy Butler and Pau Gasol.
Butler is averaging a solid 22.4 points but got hurt late last week which kept him out of all-star weekend. Gasol, who filled in for Butler, is averaging a double-double with 17 points and 10.9 rebounds per game.
Former MVP Derrick Rose is playing decent this season averaging 15.9 points and 5 assists per contest.
The Bulls were last in action at home in a loss against the Hawks of Atlanta 113-90.
Pau Gasol led the Bulls in the game with another double-double, scoring 20 points with 10 rebounds. Without Butler, Rose was able to some a little bit of production with 14 points and 5 rebounds.
The Bulls look to improve this second half of the season and solidify a spot in the playoffs where they currently stand at the 7th seed.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
The Bulls start the second half off with the top two teams in the East and I look for them to split those games.
I think that Pau Gasol will be able to be a presence inside and Derrick Rose will keep Kyle Lowry in check for much of this game.
