With so few games to be played and so much work that awaits, any win by any means against any opponent at this time of the season must be viewed as a good development.

In the big picture and in the overall standings, not much will be gained, but any momentum heading into the off-season can’t be dismissed.

Without Jonas Valanciunas (neck), Terrence Ross (ankle) and Landry Fields (throat), Toronto’s roster was depleted, but only Valanciunas could be considered as a key piece.

In contrast, the visiting Chicago Bulls have been hit by the injury bug all season long, the most impactful to superstar point guard Derrick Rose (knee).
