24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
With Kevin Love out, the Cavs are up for their greatest challenge in the Eastern Conference as they take on the Chicago Bulls. This is by far the best Bulls team that LeBron James has ever gone up against.
With the additions of Pau Gasol, an All-Star Jimmy Butler and a healthy Derrick Rose, the Bulls came into this series evenly favored to win it all.
Derrick Rose was big time in Game 1 finishing with 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, while Pau Gasol added 21 points and 10 boards to lead the Bulls to a 99-92 Game 1 victory.
Game 2 will be crucial for the Cavs and LeBron James will need to take on more of a scoring role as his 19 points on 9-of-22 was just not enough tonight.
