NBA Playoffs Betting: Bulls vs Cavaliers

Chicago Bulls vs Cleveland Cavaliers live tonight at 00:00 (GMT). Can LeBron and the Cavs hold off the charging Bulls?

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have faced a myriad of challenges all season long. They are about to face their biggest one of the post season tonight, as they face off against the Chicago Bulls. The Cavs have home court advantage tonight, which should be a sigh of relief, as they are excellent at Quicken Loans Arena but they cannot afford to take the Bulls for granted, especially without two of their starters.

Cavs down Two Starters

The Cavs will be without Kevin Love and J.R. Smith. Love is out needing to undergo shoulder surgery and will be out the rest of the post season, and Smith is out on suspension for the first two games of this series. That means that that LeBron will need to be at his best to beat the Bulls, which is easier said than done. Cleveland went 3-1 against Chicago in the regular season, but this is the playoffs and with a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals on the line, both teams will be leaving everything they have on the hard wood.

The Bulls are one of the best defensive-minded teams in the league and they will be looking to limit the scoring chances of the Cavs big men. The will be looking to create turnovers and make the Cavs think twice on every play.  The Bulls have never been able to beat LeBron in the playoffs, suffering losses in the 2010, 2011 and 2013 post season. The Bulls look like a new team and could easily be the team to oust the Cavs this year.
