The hottest eastern conference team meets the coldest as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls square off Monday from United Center.
Since Nov 11, Cleveland has run roughshod over the league throughout an eye-opening 11-game unbeaten run spanning exactly three weeks. During this stretch, Cleveland ranks among the NBA’s top-ten two-way units while making 47% of all attempted shots and outscoring opponents by a wide +9.7 margin.
Further, LeBron James has re-established his vice grip upon the title of best player on the planet, averaging 27 ppg, 9 rpg, 8 apg and 56/45/71 shooting.
Meanwhile, with one win in thirteen attempts, Chicago is mired in an encompassing competitive quicksand.
When these teams last met Oct 24 from Quicken Loans, a then uncertain Cavaliers iteration prevailed 119-112.
Cleveland lists Iman Shumpert (ankle) and Derrick Rose (ankle) as out vs. Chicago. Channing Frye (finger) is listed as day-to-day. Chicago lists Bobby Portis (arm) as day-to-day. Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic was recalled from Chicago’s G-League affiliate and is expected to return to NBA competition this week.
Cleveland’s streak has allayed murmurs of the franchise’s downturn following Kyrie Irving’s departure and has restored hope that the Cavs will remain a key player for LeBron James’ services past this season. While James has ascended, Kevin Love has become a viable second-star on a suddenly balanced Cleveland ship.
Minus Tristan Thompson, who is set to return soon, Love has averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds throughout the Cavaliers’ eleven-game unblemished march.
Further, bench cogs Kyle Korver, Channing Frye, and erstwhile superstar Dwyane Wade have provided quality minutes as Cleveland has ravished a slate of mostly underwhelming opposition.
Concerning Wade, it is no coincidence the Cavs have taken off since the three-time NBA Champion began acclimating himself alongside James and company. Since Nov 5, Wade has proffered solid contributions of 14 ppg, 4 apg, and nearly 5 rpg.
The Cavaliers have found the kind of cohesion which has led the franchise to three-consecutive NBA Finals appearances. Now, can LBJ and crew bring this synergy to United Center Monday night?
There is no reason why the Cavaliers’ run should stop vs. Chicago. However, this seemingly innocuous game has trap written all over it.
At 3-18, while taking a regular league-wide pounding, and far from the playoff picture, Chicago lives for spoiler games like Monday nights.
To give Chicago a glimmer of hope, seven Bulls, led by Justin Holiday’s 25, scored in double figures when these central rivals last clashed. However, Cleveland triumphed behind 54 combined points from LBJ and Love, as Wade, Korver, and Green all reached twin-digit scoring.
Chicago will need luck, grit, and a raucous home crowd to unhinge Cleveland’s near-month long run of excellence.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs.Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
Cleveland is the prohibitive favorite coming into this meeting. If Chicago were to spring an upset, it’d be the eastern conference’s version of Sacramento vs. Golden State. However, even with home court advantage, the Bulls are little match for a steamrolling and determined LeBron James-led Cavaliers unit.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Cavaliers -9.5
Expect another routine victory for Cleveland; though Chicago might make a play to go under the spread.
