On Wednesday, April 21st the Chicago Bulls play Cleveland Cavaliers for the third and final time this season. Each team has a victory from earlier matches this season. The initial meeting was won by Cleveland (103-94) on March 24th while the Bulls won the second meeting on April 17th, 106-96.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Bulls winning three of four of those contests. Chicago holds the all-time record having won 129 matches of the 221 played.
Although the Bulls made big moves at the deadline to add Nikola Vucevic and Daniel Theis they’ve struggled to find a rhythm and move upward. Instead, while they lost 11 of 14 matches the Wizards and Raptors began to get healthy and started winning.
Now the three teams are mired in a battle for the final play-in tournament seed. Fortunately, the Bulls took advantage of their recent match versus tonight’s opponent and shocked the Celtics with a victory on Monday.
The win versus Boston was made even more impressive given the absence of Zach LaVine. Danny Ainge must be kicking himself for not making a similar move to land Nikola Vucevic at the trade deadline.
The Bulls’ new big man was unstoppable in the win on Monday, scoring 29 points with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a block.
Coby White added 19 points, while Garrett Temple and Thaddeus Young each scored 13 points.
Troy Brown Jr. has an ankle sprain that is expected to keep him out Wednesday. LaVine continues to deal with the league health and safety protocols and won’t play versus the Cavaliers.
While the Cavaliers appeared headed for the lottery it’s not a given that will be their elected choice. Seven of the games they have remaining in their final 15 matches are against lottery teams and five versus the teams vying for that final play-in berth.
Still, they arrive at this game, losers of their last three matches including the most recent to the Detroit Pistons.
The Cavaliers young backcourt had a solid effort versus the Pistons with Collin Sexton leading the way via 28 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal, and two blocks.
Darius Garland added 23 points, six assists, and two steals. Also, factoring was Kevin Love who is looking like the dominant big man he was for the franchise during the LeBron James tenure. Love provided 15 points, eight rebounds, and four assists although his perimeter shot wasn’t falling against Detroit (0 of 4).
Isaiah Hartenstein (13) and Taurean Prince (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Damyean Dotson (knee), and Dylan Wyndler (knee) have missed the last 10 and 12 games respectively and are expected to miss the game on Wednesday.
