Here is the first game of the 2nd round of the NBA Playoffs in the Eastern Conference as the 2nd seed Cleveland Cavaliers face the Chicago Bulls, who’s the 3rd seed. The Cavaliers are coming off a 4 game sweep of the Boston Celtics, while the Bulls finished off the Milwaukee Bucks in 6 games.
The Cavaliers played great against the tough, pesky and young Celtics team in the first round. The 4 game sweep was expected, but with the Cavs losing Kevin Love for the remainder of the playoff due to his shoulder injury are facing an uphill battle. Can LeBron James and Kyrie Irving carry the Cavs against the tough Bulls team? Chicago has been one of the toughest teams in the last few years despite all of their injuries. This series will be one of the more intense ones in the 2nd round because these teams don’t like each other and the Cavs beat them 3 out of 4 games during the season, but that don’t matter. I was thinking that the Bulls would win this series in 7 games before the Kevin Love injury, but now I believe they’ll win it in 6 games. With Derrick Rose playing better, Jimmy Butler playing out of this world and with Gasol & Noah will be too much for the Cavs.
Chicago Bulls Win Series 4-2
