Raptors 109 Bulls 98
The Chicago Bulls were looking for a playoff tuneup. Instead, they got pounded. Shawn Marion scored a season-high 34 points, Chris Bosh set one with 19 rebounds while scoring 21, and the Toronto Raptors closed their season by beating the listless Bulls 109-98 Wednesday to snap Chicago’s season-high five-game win streak. The Bulls needed a win or a loss by Philadelphia to lock up the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference and a first-round matchup with Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic. Otherwise, they were looking at defending champion Boston with the seventh seed.
Then again, either opponent figures to give them fits.
