On Monday night, the Bulls pulled off a road victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Not only is winning road playoff games essential to championship runs, but they also set the tone for this series, especially with it being the first game.

The Cavs trailed very early in this game, starting off down 14-2 and only scoring 15 points in the first quarter.

The Cavs allowed Mike Dunleavy to shoot 5-for-5 in the first quarter, which is unacceptable if they’re to shut down the Bulls outside game. The Bulls set the tone early and showed the Cavs they were the aggressor to start this series. In Game 2, the Cavs need to come out aggressive and ready to play.
