Bulls

After never trailing in Game 1, the Bulls never led in a Game 2 thrashing, falling to the Cavaliers 106-91 on Wednesday night. The series is now even 1-1 heading back to Chicago for Game 3.
According to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, Bulls guard Jimmy Butler is expected to be named the NBA's Most Improved Player. Butler averaged 20.0 points per game in his fourth NBA season.
During morning shootaround, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau defended Joakim Noah's play in Game 1 and is backing his starting center going into Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavs Wednesday night.
