Seems like just about every major national basketball publication and website has the Bulls and Cavaliers penciled in for a late May series to decide the Eastern Conference championship.
The blueprint for the Cavaliers’ overtime win on Friday night against the Bulls was laid out by first-year coach David Blatt at an emotional team meeting earlier in the day.
After the Cavaliers’ season-opening loss on Thursday, LeBron James said he was relieved his second Cleveland debut was over so that he could get back to “regular basketball.”
“Everybody can breathe.”
It wasn’t Kirk Hinrich’s first time filling in for an injured Derrick Rose, but it was his most impressive.
