=== Chicago Bulls Team Report - March 20 ===
(Sports Network) - Chicago will be looking to build from its 96-91 win over the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre Friday night.
With the victory, the Bulls stopped the bleeding of a seven-game skid.
Eddy Curry registered a team-high 28 points, while Kirk Hinrich added 21 points and 13 assists in the win. Antonio Davis tacked on 18 points and 14 boards in the contest.
Davis and Jerome Williams returned to the Air Canada Centre for the first time since they were traded to Chicago for Jalen Rose and Donyell Marshall on Dec. 1. Davis, who wanted out of Toronto, was booed mercilessly by the Raptor faithful.
The Bulls hit an impressive 46.3 percent of their shots and forced 17 Toronto turnovers in the contest. Chicago posted a slight 44-40 victory on the boards in the win.
The Bulls have no time to enjoy the victory, as they return to the court Saturday night against the New York Knicks at the United Center. The teams have split a pair of meetings this season with the road team winning each game.
The Knicks won 101-96 at the United Center on January 17. Chicago has still won five of the last seven meetings in the series. The Knicks have lost six of their last nine trips to the Windy City.
Chicago has dropped its last two home tilts. For the season, the Bulls are just 12-22 at the United Center.CHI
