GAME 17 BREAKDOWN :
FT : Chicago Bulls - Toronto Raptors 83:122
Here’s to another winning streak!
The game started and we looked hungry right away! Ibaka had a good block on Jabari Parker and that led us to nailing a 3 pointer by Danny Green at the other way. As good as we looked, Bulls did manage to get couple good possessions in and tied the game at 14 after a floater from Cameron Payne. That was the last time they were close to us as we went on a run and didn’t look back! We were just dominating and finished the quarter with 27:18 lead.
We were able to play our bench more and give all our guys some minutes. Malachi Richardson was called up from Raptors 905 and he put in some work! Our defense just clicked well and Bulls had hard time scoring. Ibaka and Siakam had couple nice blocks that got into the highlight reel! We also kept Chicago to 39% from the field in the 2nd Q. Bulls managed to score just before the end and the first half finished 57:44 for Raps!
3rd quarter is where we DEMOLISHED Chicago. We clearly outscored them and we kept them to just 21% from the field! Ibaka got the ball from Lowry and DUNKED on Jabari Parker! Ibaka just bullied him in this game. It was so good to see Steady Freddy working hard and having a great game! Kyle managed to step wrong in the final minutes of the 3rd and he hurt his ankle in the process. Let’s hope he’s fine! We finished the 3rd quarter in 89:56 lead.
It was time for some garbage minutes so our bench came in to finish off the entire 4th quarter. It was nice to see them getting some well deserved playing time! The defense was good all night, we moved the ball well and offense clicked. Beautiful performance. Boucher and Loyd also got called up from the 905 and shoutout to the 905 guys for putting in the work for us! Our bench shot 65% from the field (4th Q) as they closed out the game 122:83! RAPTORS WIN! Feels good to say that again.
