TORONTO - The Raptors (4-5) will look to build off their most encouraging outing of the season at the Air Canada Centre Friday when they host the Chicago Bulls (3-3), who are expected to be without their star point guard. Catch all the action live on TSN at 7pm et and listen on TSN Radio 1050. Derrick Rose, who is nursing a sore right hamstring, is unlikely to play, according to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. However, that was news to Rose Friday morning. "Theyre still leaving it up to me," Rose said prior to his teams shoot-around, refusing to rule himself out. "[Ill] go out there, see how shoot-around goes and if theres any tightness or soreness, theres no point to go out there and play but if I go out there and it loosens up, I think Ill be playing." The Raptors are returning home after splitting a two-game Western road trip. Following a heartbreaking double-overtime loss in Houston, they bounced back and defeated the Grizzlies, 103-87 on Wednesday. Toronto held Memphis to 43 per cent shooting and forced 19 turnovers, outshooting them 39-17 at the free-throw line. Coming off an atrocious shooting performance in Mondays loss, Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan were both efficient in Memphis. Gay scored 23 points on 8-of-18 from the field against his former team and DeRozan added 18 points, shooting 7-of-13. It was the first time both players shot over 36 per cent in the same game this season. Rose sustained his injury on a drive to the basket in the fourth quarter of Chicagos 96-81 win over the Cavaliers Monday. He has sat out of consecutive practices but with the Bulls off since the beginning of the week, the hope was that he would be able to return in Toronto. "Hes a little better," Thibodeau said of the former MVP. "If he can go, we want him to go. If he feels like he cant go, then we dont want him to go." Regardless of whether or not Rose is able to play, Dwane Caseys game plan remains the same. "Theyre going to be the same team," said the Raptors coach. "Theyre going to hit you in the mouth, punch you in the gut and just [play] smash mouth basketball whether he plays or not." Rose is averaging 28.7 points and 10.3 assists in his last three games against the Raptors, but hes missed the last five meetings and hasnt played in Toronto since February of 2011 after sitting out all of last season recovering from knee surgery. Trends and Tidbits Both the Raptors and Bulls are among the leagues top-five teams in second-chance points. Toronto leads the NBA in that category, averaging 20.2 points off the offensive glass while Chicago ranks fifth with 15.1. The Raptors are averaging 107.3 points, exceeding the century mark in each of their last three games after scoring just 92.3 in their first six contests. Theyre 2-1 on the season when scoring 100 or more points after going 16-16 last year. The Bulls are 28th in scoring, totalling just 92.3 points per game. Over the last three games, the Raptors are averaging 21.3 points off turnovers, while holding opponents to just 12.7 points off their own miscues. Chicago has committed 17.7 turnovers per game, third most in the association. Toronto hasnt had a record at or above .500 through 10 games since the 2009-10 season, the last year Chris Bosh played for the team. What to Watch For Move the ball For the Raptors, its pretty simple. Good things happen when they move the ball. After registering 10 assists in 58 minutes Monday, they totalled 11 in the first half of Wednesdays win. Gay and DeRozan set the tone early in that game looking to get their teammates involved and it was contagious from there. Everyone was getting easier looks and, as a result, they were more efficient as a team, playing their best basketball of the season. "The Memphis game was one of our [best] moving the ball," Casey said. "Were still trying to get that identity and maintain it, be consistent with it because any time we move the ball and pass the ball, it does create a problem [for the other team]. "Everyday we drill it," he continued. "We talk about it [and] we work on it, so its nothing new." Take care of home court The Raptors happily return home after playing six of their first nine games away from the ACC. Along with Cleveland and Washington, Toronto has played the most road games to start the season. While the Bulls havent missed a beat at home, where theyre a perfect 3-0, theyve struggled on the road to begin the season. They are winless in three games away from Chicago and are giving up 25.4 more points on the road (103.7) than they are at home (78.3). Chicago hasnt started a season 0-4 on the road since 2008-09. Who to Watch For Terrence Ross The Raptors bench was outscored by opponents reserves in each of the first six games but has bested the other teams subs in two of the last three. Ross is largely responsible for that turnaround, leading Torontos second unit in scoring in each of the last two contests. Over that span, the Raptors guard averaged 8.5 points and 3.5 rebounds, shooting 7-of-11 from the field. "Its becoming easier," the sophomore admitted. "Just [playing with more] focus basically. [Im] playing hard, really just paying attention to detail so I think thats a key thing thats going on with me right now. Casey has been impressed with Ross commitment and focus on the defensive end, which has translated to more playing time for the reserve. "Hes athletic enough he can make a mistake and catch up and make up for it," Casey said, calling Ross one of the teams better on-the-ball defenders but pointing to his improving weak-side defence. "You just dont want to make a living on that." Carlos Boozer Boozer has quietly gotten off to an excellent start for the Bulls, as Rose continues to experience highs and lows working his way back from the knee injury. The Bulls forward is averaging a team-high 18.0 points along with 8.3 rebounds, shooting 60 per cent from the field, good for the third-best percentage in the league. Boozer has scored 24.5 points and grabbed 11.3 rebounds in his last four games against the Raptors. Injury Report Rose is doubtful with a sore right hamstring for Chicago. Steve Novak, who has been inactive for six of Torontos first nine games with back tightness, is feeling better and is expected to play Friday. David Silva Jersey . Rockhold." Known as an aggressive striker, Belfort (23-10) instead paced himself as the engaged in the early going and showed restraint by not overcommitting against the larger Rockhold (10-2). But when the opportunity presented itself, Belfort delivered an incredible spinning heel kick that landed flush on Rockholds chin and sent him toppling to the floor. Nacho Fernandez Spain Jersey . This week, topics cover the Blue Jays rotation, the futures John Gibbons and Alex Anthopoulos, protecting pitchers and a bonus question on his predictions for the MLB playoffs. http://www.soccerspainauthority.com/jor ... in-jersey/. Auld made 37 saves in a 5-3 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday. It was Ottawas first game without starter Anderson, who is out indefinitely after cutting his hand Wednesday night, and it was evident the team wasnt sure how to deal with the change in goal. Cesar Azpilicueta Jersey . - A week after a late-game debacle on defence, the Pittsburgh Steelers showed they can finish. Diego Costa Jersey . Smith, who raised eyebrows at the CFL combine in March with his ability on both sides of the ball, confirmed in a statement he tested positive for the anabolic steroid Stanozolol prior to auditioning for league officials.Flying high with the backing of Angry Birds, Finland received a wild card for the World Cup of Basketball on Saturday in a decision criticized for being more about business than basketball. Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. The draw is Monday. Greece is ranked fifth in the world and the only team to beat the U.S. since Mike Krzyzewski became coach in 2005. Turkey is ranked seventh and was runner-up to the Americans in the 2010 world championship. Brazil, which will host the 2016 Olympics, is No. 10. Finland is only 39th, the only one of the 12 teams since 2006 to receive a wild card that wasnt in the top 24. But it had the support of Rovio, the Finnish company behind the popular Angry Birds games that had agreed to provide advertising if Finland was selected. "We are fully aware that despite our strong athletic results and fan support, we need to think creatively about how we can truly show our strength to FIBA and the basketball world," Antti Zitting, president of the Finnish Basketball Association said Thursday in a release announcing Rovios support. "As a small Northern country we cannot deliver the same type of TV audience as some other nations, but thanks to Angry Birds, we can offer an engagement platform that no other country can match.dddddddddddd" FIBA lists economic aspects among the criteria for wild cards, which became part of the organizations biggest tournament in 2006. Secretary general Patrick Baumann noted Finlands recent success on the court but also its potential off it in a statement about the decision, citing the Finns four victories over top-15 teams at the 2013 European championships and their strong fan support. "The Finns are enjoying massive support with their fans travelling in big numbers to their games," Baumann said. "The current growth of Finnish basketball is the result of a solid long-term strategy being executed by the Finnish Basketball Association and still has a lot of potential for development." Russia, the 2012 Olympic bronze medallist , China, Canada, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Israel, Italy, Nigeria, Poland, Qatar and Venezuela were the other countries that had applied for wild cards. Italy and Germany had previously withdrawn their bids and China, which was considered a leading candidate to get one because of its population and passion for basketball, did Saturday morning. FIBA also announced it had lifted a ban on Senegal and would allow it to be in the tournament.
