Game Preview: Cavs Look to Bounce Back in Chicago Tonight
Last night’s home opener wasn’t exactly the start to the season the Cavs were after, losing a close one to the New York Knicks, 95-90; but every day is a new beginning.
The Bulls got off to a flying start against those same New York Knicks on Wednesday night, winning 104-80, in a game that the second half was never really a contest. If there is ever a time to prove that the Cavs are a team to be reckoned with, its against conference and division foes, the Chicago Bulls.
While the Cavs strive to find team chemistry, and a team identity, they face a team that has exactly that. This Bulls team is as tough as it gets in the Eastern Conference, and in the first of four matchups this season, this could set the tone for the season series.

SG – Kirk Hinrich
SF – Mike Dunleavy
PF – Pau Gasol
C – Joakim Noah
