BALLIN! Two Eastern Conference rivals will throw down at the United Center on Apr. 9 at 8:30pm EST, when the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Chicago Bulls. Watch the live stream here.
The Cavaliers come into this game with the best record in the East Conference and have clinched their division. The Bulls are sitting around the 500 ball and will have their pride along with a slim play-off chance on the line when they host LeBron James, 31, and his squad. Find the live stream here and catch every hoop, board and three-pointer.
There are only 3 games left on the Bulls schedule and they are fighting to save themselves being eliminated from post-season play. The Cavaliers, who beat the Bulls in their last meeting, are heading into this contest with a 3-game lead in the East. The Cavs have yet to clinch home field advantage for the first round of playoffs. This is no time for either team to take their foot off the gas so expect to see stars and starters go hard in the paint in this contest.
This will be the rubber match for the Cavaliers who are winding down a 3 game road trip. They began the trip with a 29 point win over the Milwaukee Bucks who have already been eliminated from the playoffs. The Cavs then lost in Indiana and are looking to get it right against the Bulls before finishing their season at home against Atlanta and Detroit, two teams who are fighting for their post-season bragging rights too. Don’t look for LeBron and crew to be embarrassed in this contest with the Bulls.
The playoffs may not start for a week or two but for the Bulls every game is a do or die situation and they must make every opportunity count. The Bulls will have two games left after the Cavs and must win out, and get some help from other teams losing, if they expect to have any more games on their schedule in April.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Who will you be rooting for in this game? Will the Cavaliers and LeBron continue their dominance or will the Bulls begin their miracle run into the playoffs by knocking off the beast in the East?
