This game is about as straight forward as a win as you could possibly ask for:
1) The Cavaliers have lost 15 straight and are simply terrible.
2) It's a home game.
3) It's a back to back for the Cavs, but the Bulls have a day of rest
4) The Bulls should have Carlos Boozer back for the game
However, after losing twice to the Bobcats in the last week or so, I take nothing for granted.
Keys to the game
Make it to the game on time
As noted above, this is probably about as straight forward a win as possible. If the Bulls managed to lose this game (without some type of catastrophic injury) then I'm not sure what I'll do, bu tI promise the rant won't be good.
Try not to get too excited by Bears / Packers tomorrow
No distractions. I know the guys are probably trying to figure out their party plans to watch the big game, but they can't let that get in the way of beating up on Cleveland tonight.
Seriously though, just take care of business
Focus on the defensive glass, don't turn the ball over, don't make
mistakes. Force Cleveland to beat you with their own skills rather
than allowing them to beat you off of your own mistakes.
Bring energy early and build up a lead. Don't let the bad teams hang around and have a chance to get lucky at the end.
Anything can happen on a given night, but it's more or less inexcusable to drop this game.
