Cleveland Cavaliers Host The Chicago Bulls

Cleveland, OH - The Cavaliers will host the Chicago Bulls Thursday evening. The Bulls come to town with a 30-25 record, 9-18 away. The Cavaliers rally with a 32-22 record, 20-7 at home.

The Chicago Bulls have lost six straight road games against the Cavaliers, and they will need to bring forth their best effort to get a win Thursday. The Bulls lost at Cleveland 113-94 on Nov. 9, then evened the season series with a 103-96 home victory on Dec. 30.

Cleveland has won 5-6 games with the Bulls overall since the start of last season. The All-Star forward, LeBron James, scored thirty or more points in five of those meetings.

James had 29 points in Wednesday's 86-85 victory over Toronto, but Anderson Varejao saved the day.

Varejao dunked teammate Sasha Pavlovic's missed shot with 16 seconds left to give the Cavs their fifth win in six games.

"That was definitely the play of the game," James said. "It was a game-winner. He timed it just right."

Cavaliers and the Bulls square off Thursday night, 7:00 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena.
