Cavaliers beats Bulls for the first time this season

Cleveland Cavaliers (39-14) gathered their fourth consecutive victory and finally managed to take down the Chicago Bulls (27-26), cruising to a 106-95 win at the Quicken Loans Arena.

The Bulls had an 2-0 encounter advantage but lost much team structure and ability with injury, with Jimmy Butler (knee), Nikola Mirotic (hematoma) and Joakim Noah (shoulder) all sidelined.

With offense placed solely shoulders of Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol, the Bulls were all over the place.

Meanwhile, Cavaliers’ Lebron James opened the scoreboard and got the team’s first 8 points but looked slightly bumped out with 2:51 left in the first quarter.

But he still managed to dominate when they returned, nearly taking a second triple-double in 3 games. He finished the game with 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists – the 419th 25-5-5 of his career, an all time-NBA record.

Kyrie Irving recorded 19 points. Kevin Love had 15 points, 15 rebounds and a block. Tristan Thompson provided 16 points and 10 boards.

Tyronn Lue said his team’s defensive intensity has been lacking and he had to be pleased with what he saw tonight. Still, the Bulls failed to reach 40 percent shooting and lost the rebounding battle 52-49 as well as blocks and steals (8-4 each).
