DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Raptors beat Chicago 119-114 on Tuesday night for their first three-game winning streak over the Bulls since 2009.
Bobby Portis had 21 points and 13 rebounds in his return after sitting out Chicago's first eight games.

Robin Lopez scored 20 points and Justin Holiday had 15 as Chicago lost for the fourth time in five games.
 
Toronto led by as many as 23 but Chicago cut the deficit to 115-112 following a hook shot by Portis with 41 seconds left. DeRozan answered with a turnaround jump shot with 20 seconds left, leading to a Bulls timeout.
