It's Raptors vs Bulls in the play in tournament and here's what you need to know

The Toronto Raptors will go head-to-head against DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls on April 12, in a do-or-die play-in tournament game at Scotiabank Arena.

Toronto (40-41) has secured ninth spot in the Eastern Conference, following a 121-102 road loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

The Raptors will wrap up the regular season Sunday at home to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Chicago is guaranteed to finish in 10th place.

The Raptors host the Bulls Wednesday night in Toronto, with the winner of that game moving on to face the loser of Tuesday's Eastern Conference play-in between the No. 7 seed Miami Heat (43-38) and No. 8 seed Atlanta Hawks (41-40).

The Raptors must win Wednesday at home and Friday on the road to earn a spot in the playoffs, where they would play a best-of-seven series against league-leading Milwaukee (58-23).

The Raptors and Bulls played each other three times this season, twice in Toronto and once in Chicago.

The home team won all three matchups.

Tickets for the play-in game between the Raptors and Bulls are expected to go on sale on Monday and details for Jurassic Park, the viewing experience outside Scotiabank Area, are expected to be announced soon.
