NBA Playoffs Betting: Bulls vs. Cavaliers Game 3Published May 8, 2015 by Amir G
The NBA playoff conference semifinals arrive at the Windy City for Game 3 between the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers with the series tied at 1-1 (00:00 GMT).
The exciting match-up in the NBA playoff conference semifinal between the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers continues this Friday night (00:00 GMT).
Tied at 1-1
The series is now tied at 1-1 after LeBron James fulfilled his promise to be more on the aggressive side in Wednesday night's game 2 which ended 106-91 in favor of the Cavs. James scored 33 points with 13-of-29 shooting as he went back to wear the traditional headband since the regular season ended.
To The Windy City
Tonight, the game shifts over to the Windy City and the Bulls have the homely advantage at the United Center. The Bulls will have to step up their offensive game tonight as it didn't seem to be full force in game 2. Derrick Rose's performance didn't come close to his fantastic show in game 1; he scored 14 points with 10 assists and 7 rebounds.
Bulls will look up to Rose to up his game tonight but it's no one-man show. Coach Tom Thibodeau will have to employ the best of his tactician skills in order to find a way to prevent the Cavs from executing an onslaught as they've demonstrated in game 2 . Pau Gasol has been fantastic in the playoffs so far but the Cavs pick-and-roll made the physical game more difficult – his performance will be crucial for turning the tide in favor of the Bulls.
With the impressive game 2 win, Cavs have the momentum as they arrive in the United Center tonight. The team improved its shooting game with many three-pointers and an aggressive approach that led to some impressive runs and big deficits; if Chicago doesn't straighten itself up, Cavs will win.
