* Nate Robinson had a season-high 35 points off the bench in Chicago’s overtime win over the Knicks on Thursday. He has 12 games with 20+ points this season; eight of those performances have been when he has come off the bench.

* The Raptors are 6-6 this season when Kyle Lowry has double-digit assists in a game, but have won the last three, including the April 9 meeting with the Bulls. Lowry had 10 assists in that contest.
