The Bulls won last night, but their Bench Mob struggled against Toronto’s second string. No one on the Toronto side played as well as former Bulls player James Johnson, who was 7-of-9 from the field for 16 points including a power slam after Greivis Vasquez whipped a pretty no-look dish to him following a Bulls turnover.
