Cavaliers Vs. Bulls: Cleveland Starts Back To Back At Home Against Chicago

The Cleveland Cavaliers welcome the Chicago Bulls to town on Friday in the first game of a back to back.

Derrick Rose wasn't in the lineup the last time that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls met, and the Bulls still won in a laugher, 114-75. Anderson Varejo was the leading scorer for the Cavs that game. The reigning MVP will be with the Bulls this time and Varejo won't be with the Cavs as Cleveland welcome Chicago to Quicken Loans Arena and they'll need to play much better against the powerful Bulls as they go into a back to back.

Cleveland have lost their last three games while Chicago have been on a tear recently, winning six of their last seven and four in a row. Chicago also have a six game winning streak going against the Cavaliers, though Kyrie Irving's strong play seems the most likely candidate to stop the Bulls rampaging over them if anyone's going to stop them, they haven't had a player of his quality since LeBron James was still in town.

The game will be at Quicken Loans Arena at 7:30 PM ET.
