Getting this one up early.
Kind of an interesting matchup, as the Raptors have been playing better (and have been more enjoyable to watch) after their trade of Rudy Gay. It's still very much muddled as to who's still playing for the playoffs and who isn't, and the Raptors are perhaps now at the point of being too good to go the other way.
Make sure you check out Jay's year-in-review post as well. By my recollection these New Years Eve games are kind of turds, to the point where I feel bad for the people going. This may be another in that trend, as the Bulls are on a back-to-back. Though Luol Deng does return tonight.
