"I guess it's just who you're playing against. Everything is officiated different toward whoever it is, but if you look back at the video at the time, it was obvious.

The Bulls engaged in a fight over the weekend with the Oklahoma City Thunder, with Kris Dunn, Robin Lopez and Russell Westbrook involved. A Salt Lake Tribune columnist said Boylen is "burning down" the Bulls , the way he did when he was the coach of Utah Utes basketball.

The Bulls seem prepared to make a commitment to Jim Boylen.

According to The Athletic, Chicago has agreed to adjust its new head coach's contract, granting him a salary increase for the final two years of his deal.

Jabarai Parker on the Bulls demoting him: 'I kept my end of the bargain' It wasn’t like a fair chance," Parker said. "They took me out of the lineup. I stayed professional. I didn’t pout. I kept going." Parker has averaged 15.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 29 games this season, but has been criticized for his defense and shot selection. Multiple reports say Chicago is gauging the market in pursuit of a trade for him, but nothing has panned out yet.

Raptors Snatch Late Game Victory VS Bulls.
It was the Toronto Raptors last game of 2018, and the Raptors recent lack of success has been mostly because of injuries. A very tough portion of the schedule has hit the Raptors, and they didn’t seem very ready after starting the season with a 20-4 record (best in franchise history through 24 games). In the past 8 games, Nick nurse has used 5 different starting lineups. In Toronto’s matchup against the Bulls on Sunday, the Raptors were without power forward Serge Ibaka, centre Jonas Valanciunas, and all star point guard Kyle Lowry. Those three players are normally placed in the starting lineup, however without access to those contributors, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse needed to heavily rely on his bench players to try and get the home win. Coming into the game, Toronto was carrying a 26-11 record, as the Raptors dropped their spot as first seed in the eastern conference to the Milwaukee Bucks, who have been trailing Toronto in the standings throughout the season. On the other hand, the rebuilding Chicago Bulls were coming into the game with a 10-26 record, and were thirteenth in the eastern conference. It was a close game for the entire four quarters, with neither team seeming to exceed a 6 point lead. It was constantly going back and forth, with 9 lead changes occurring over the course of the game. The Raptors actually shot a worse percentage from the field than the Bulls: Chicago shot 41.3% from the field, while Toronto shot 37.0%.
