Meet Miami, Chicago Lavigne came from behind to win by 19 points with 39 points
Chicago is headed for Miami. The battle of blood was crowned with a new victory.
The Chicago Bulls won the 2023 NBA Play-in Tournament against the Toronto Raptors 109-105 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Chicago will play a single game against the Miami Heat for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. While Jack Lavigne (39 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists) showed explosive power, Derma DeRozan (23 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks) also shot support and made a reversal.
On the other hand, Toronto also played its part in Pascal Siakam (32 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists) with Fred VanVlet (26 points, 7 3-pointers, 11 rebounds and 8 assists) playing a triple-double role, but he swallowed his disappointment due to a lack of endurance
Chicago’s start was not smooth. In the first quarter, VanVlet allowed 11 runs, including three three-point shots, and handed over the early flow. With Rabin scoring only four points, DeRozan fought hard, but it was not enough to turn the tide. The score was 23-28 at the end of the first quarter.
Chicago’s reversal early in the second quarter with DeRozan was also briefly dampened. With Siakam as the axis, Toronto’s firepower could not be controlled with bench members’ support shots. Chicago even allowed Van Vitt to buzzer beater, finishing the second quarter 47-58.
Chicago, which was once 19 points behind in the third quarter, has been in a full-fledged chase since the middle of the third quarter. Rabin showed off his good sense of shooting and changed the mood. Chicago finished the third quarter 72-81 with Rabin, who scored 11 points in the last two minutes and 42 seconds of the third quarter.
