Raptors vs. Bulls final score: Toronto blows out Chicago at home

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Bulls lose! Bulls lose.

Even with Luol Deng, the Chicago Bulls are not very good. Deng made his return to the starting lineup after missing four games with an Achilles injury, but it didn't help the Bulls slow down the tanking Raptors. Toronto pulled away in the second quarter and dominated after halftime to defeat the Bulls 99-77 on Saturday night. It was about as bad as the score indicates.

The Bulls just couldn't hit a shot, finishing the game at 36 percent from the field. Carlos Boozer couldn't get anything going against Amir Johnson. Boozer's line on the night: eight points and seven rebounds on 4-of-18 shooting. Deng also showed a bit of rust in his first game back, finishing with 17 points on 8-of-19 shooting. Taj Gibson was 2-of-7 for four points in 26 minutes.

And that's before we get to the guards. Without Kirk Hinrich, the Bulls started Marquis Teague at the point and gave D.J. Augustin 20 minutes as his backup. They combined to go 4-of-13 from the field for 12 points. The backcourt really might offer a realistic chance at honorable tanking this season.

Five Toronto scorers finished in double-figures, led by 16 points from Kyle Lowry.
