This will be the third instalment of a four-game season series between the two storied franchises.
The Bulls met the Celtics twice in the same week in their first four games of the season which ended up in a split. Dwyane Wade scored 22 points in his debut in a 105-99 victory for the Bulls which was also Chicago’s opener to the season. The Celtics then dealt the Bulls their first loss of the year in 107-100 victory six days later.

It was the Bulls’ eleven straight victory against the Raptors. Toronto trailed by 19 points at halftime and never could quite recover from the deficit.
The Celtics are riding on a four-game winning streak and have widened their lead in the Atlantic Division to 4.5 games over the Raptors. Fatigue might be an issue here as they are playing their third game in four nights with two games on the road. They held on to beat Philadelphia 116-108 last night in a home victory.
