These Bulls are on fire! Monday night’s game between the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers was an exciting start to the series ending in a 99-92 win for the Bulls. The Cavaliers lost their first home court advantage and now must hope that game 2 has more for them and live betting services.
It seems that Derrick Rose and his team are back, with Rose taking 25 points and 5 assists, Pau Gasol adding another 21 points and 10 rebounds, and a Jimmy Butler topping it off with another 20 points.
The game looked to be off to a good start for the Cavs, but luck was not with Lebron James and company and by the third quarter the Cavaliers were seriously waning with a 16 point deficit. Their best effort had been in the second quarter, and after that it was all downhill.
“It’s not a point about looking in the past or talking about the past,” said Rose, who had a little shoulder problem late in the game. “The teammates I have on my team right now, like I said, I’m grateful. I’m so fortunate to be playing with them. I think we can be a dangerous team.
“The way I used to play back in the day is totally different than the way I play now,” said Rose. “I can’t think about the past or even put in my head (losing playoff series after being ahead 1-0). I can only have positive thoughts; just trying to lead my team in a positive way. You can’t think of how many times he beat us in the past; it’s over. We’re in the present now.”
