Valanciunas leads Raptors over Bulls

CHICAGO — Jonas Valanciunas scored 15 points and the Toronto Raptors mounted a fourth-quarter comeback to beat the Chicago Bulls 85-79 on Tuesday night.

He made two big free throws to seal the game in the final minute after Toronto had missed three of four from the line down the stretch.

Greivis Vasquez hit a 3-pointer two minutes into the fourth to give Toronto (14-15) its first lead of the second half, and the Raptors didn't look back. Vasquez scored seven of his nine points in the fourth quarter, and also had two assists and a blocked shot in the final quarter as Toronto overcame the tenacious Bulls defense.

Luol Deng led Chicago (12-18) with 16 points in his return to the court after missing five games due to a sore left Achilles tendon.

Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah and Kirk Hinrich combined to make just 4 of 27 field goals for the Bulls.
