Okay, I know it's the Cavs, but seriously, how do the Bulls keep getting pushed to CSN+ for the Blackhawks? The Bulls miss out on a second dose of Rookie of the Year front runner, Kyrie Irving due to an illness. The game now looks like a blowout win for Chicago.
What's there to say?
The Bulls should cruise through this game. The Cavs are pretty terrible with Irving, without him they'll likely be completely dreadful. The Bulls have too much talent at all positions. The only way Chicago doesn't blow out the Cavs in this game is if they completely lay an egg, show up drunk, and completely take the Cavs for granted.
The biggest question in this game is whether the Crowd will support the Cavs or the Bulls. Cleveland's a bit of a drive, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Bulls fans drown out the Cavs fans particularly since they'll likely have more to cheer about.
If Chicago plays with focus and fundamentals this looks like a 20+ point win.
