TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 58-24, won NBA Finals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (14.2 ppg, 8.7 apg), G Norman Powell (8.6 ppg), F OG Anunoby (7.0 ppg), F Pascal Siakam (16.9 ppg), C Marc Gasol (15.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Kawhi Leonard, G Danny Green
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, F Stanley Johnson, G Matt Thomas
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A runaway winner of the NBA's Most Improved Player Award last season, Siakam doesn't look likely to rest on his laurels. Nurse said he's seen more maturity and calmness in Siakam this fall, something new for a player whose game was previously all about speed and energy. Thomas has never played in the NBA, but the former Iowa State star shot 48.1% (116 for 241) from 3-point range in helping Spain's Valencia Basket capture the 2019 EuroCup title.
OUTLOOK: The defending champions lost their best player when Leonard left for the Clippers, and took another hit when Green signed with the Lakers. While those departures may have dimmed Toronto's hopes of repeating, the Raptors aren't lottery-bound either. Lowry has made five straight All-Star teams, Gasol is a defensive force in the paint, and there's talent on the bench in guard Fred VanVleet and big man Serge Ibaka. Expect the Raptors to earn a top-four seed in a balanced Eastern Conference.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

CHICAGO: LAST SEASON: 22-60, missed playoffs.
COACH: Jim Boylen (first full season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kris Dunn (11.3 ppg), G Zach LaVine (23.7 ppg), F Otto Porter Jr. (13.9 ppg with Washington, Chicago), F Lauri Markkanen (18.7 ppg), C Wendell Carter Jr. (10.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Robin Lopez
KEY ADDITIONS: F Thaddeus Young, G Coby White, G Tom's Satoransk'
PLAYERS TO WATCH: With the All-Star Game in Chicago for the first time since 1988, Markkanen and LaVine would love a chance to perform for the home crowd. More important, getting picked would probably mean the Bulls are starting to win. Boylen would like both players to improve on defense, an area where Chicago ranked near the bottom of the NBA last season. He also wants Markkanen to become a more consistent rebounder in his third season. Dunn took a step back last season and now has competition after the Bulls drafted White with the No. 7 pick and acquired Satoransk' from Washington.
OUTLOOK: The Bulls see themselves contending for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference after posting one of the worst records in franchise history. If they stay healthy after an injury-riddled season and get the improvement they anticipate from their core players, it might not be a stretch.
Raptors look to end three-game skid vs. Bulls

The Toronto Raptors will be trying to end a season-long three-game losing streak Monday night when they visit the Chicago Bulls for the second time this season.

The NBA champions have won 10 straight against the Bulls, including 108-84 in their first meeting this season. The teams have yet to meet in Toronto this season.

Both teams played on the road Sunday with the Raptors losing 110-104 to the Philadelphia 76ers and the Bulls losing 110-105 to the Miami Heat in overtime.

The Raptors thrived when both Serge Ibaka and Kyle Lowry were injured, going 8-2 without both in the lineup. Their return last week coincided with a jump in the degree of difficulty of the Raptors' schedule. In their recent drought, they have lost to some of the better teams in the league -- Miami, the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia.

Until that point the Raptors' performance had been considered surprising since they lost Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green as free agents after winning their first championship.

The Raptors, who had not dropped three in a row since November 2018, lost Fred VanVleet on Sunday with a right knee contusion. He scored two points and played 12 minutes before being declared out for the remainder of the game and likely will not play Monday.

Pascal Siakam, who entered Sunday's game averaging 25 points a game this season for Toronto, was held to 16 points and seven rebounds Sunday. Lowry had 26 points, and OG Anunoby had 19 points and 10 rebounds.

"I think we've got to be really happy with where we are at this point," Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "Just because I think we've looked at some players, played some really good basketball, we've played hard, I think, most nights -- you can't argue with the effort -- and I think we've built a deeper team in this stretch."

The Raptors trailed by 21 points on Sunday, but played a strong fourth quarter, forcing 11 turnovers leading to 16 points and outscoring the Sixers 36-24.

"Our identity is pretty clear," Raptors center Marc Gasol said. "What kind of team we are and what we stand for defensively and what our pillars are on both ends of the floor. Now it's a matter of putting everything together, and we will."

The Bulls came close to giving the Heat their first loss in 10 home games this season. They had a one-point lead in the final seconds of the fourth quarter.

The Heat went up by two points on a 3-pointer by Tyler Herro with 7.1 seconds to go in the fourth quarter, and Zach LaVine tied it for Chicago with two free throws with two seconds left in regulation.

"We got a lot from a lot of guys," Bulls coach Jim Boylen said. "We battled."

LaVine finished with 18 points and Lauri Markkanen scored 22.

The Bulls had a 40-38 advantage over the Heat in points in the paint, an area they have worked on. But the Heat had 12-8 edge in second-chance points and a 43-39 advantage in rebounds.

Chicago's Chandler Hutchison (right shoulder sprain) missed his fifth consecutive game, but is getting closer to a return. "Every day, his shoulder gets less sore, more loose," Boylen said.
