It's hard to win when you don't work as a unit and post 12 fewer assists than your opponent, a fact the Bulls found out the hard way on Friday. They fell 121-108 to Toronto.

The Bulls' loss came about despite a quality game from Zach LaVine, who scored 36 points.

Meanwhile, the Nets' three-game losing streak finally came to an end on Saturday. They took down Miami 112-97.
