The Chicago Bulls just won’t lose.

On Monday night, the Bulls remained undefeated as they survived a scare from the Toronto Raptors, 111-108.

Toronto outscored Chicago 28-19 in the fourth but the Bulls held on late to get their fourth-straight victory to start the season.

DeMar DeRozan led the way for Chicago with 26 points, 4 rebounds, and 6 assists while hitting all 10 of his free throws.

Zach LaVine finished with 22 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Check out the individual player grades from Monday night’s game below.

Lonzo Ball: B

Lonzo Ball was solid on Monday night, impacting the game on both ends of the floor. Ball finished with 15 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and 1 block. Lonzo has fit in nicely with the Bulls, playing alongside LaVine and DeRozan as Chicago looks better than advertised.

Zach LaVine: B+

Zach LaVine has benefitted greatly from playing alongside newcomers Ball and DeRozan. Having two able scorers and playmakers in the lineup allows LaVine to get easier looks and takes a lot off of his plate, which showed tonight.

DeMar DeRozan: A

DeRozan continues to prove doubters wrong as the Bulls just keep on winning to start the season. His ability to attack the basket at will, which helps create open looks for teammates, has been such a positive for the Bulls, not to mention DeRozan’s success at the free throw line to start the season.

Nikola Vucevic: B

Despite being a game-time decision with an illness, you never would have guessed that Nikola Vucevic didn’t feel like himself. Finishing with 17 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals, Vucevic continues to make an impact on both sides of the floor and all over the statsheet.

Alex Caruso: B+

As successful as the additions of Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan have looked thus far for the Bulls, don’t forget about Alex Caruso. Caruso makes an impact on both ends with his high-energy and high basketball IQ. Finishing with 8 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and 4 steals, the former Texas A&M Aggie has been such a plus for Chicago to begin the season.
