Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference will face off this Friday in the Windy City.
The 1st place Cleveland Cavaliers will travel to Chicago to take on the 3rd place Bulls in what could be a very meaningful game for both.
The Cavs have been a machine this year, with a record of 13-3. However, they showed some possible weaknesses on Tuesday in Milwaukee, falling 118-101 to the Bucks.
This will be the second game of a back-to-back, and they take on the Clippers on Thursday.
The Bulls have had a rough stretch lately after a very strong start to 2016. They have lost three of their last five including a 96-90 home loss to the Lakers in a game where they were favored by 10 points.
They won the last regular season matchup against the Cavs 105-102 on April 9th.
The 2015-16 NBA Champion Cavaliers have been absolutely dominant for much of this year and look as though they could be on a course to repeat.
This game in Chicago will be their second in two nights after taking on a strong Clippers team on Thursday.
The Cavs currently rank 2nd in the league in scoring with 111.3 points per game. They are 5th in rebounding with 45.3 boards a night and 8th in assists with 22.9 per game.

The Cavaliers have been decent defensively, ranking 13th in the league and allowing 103.8 points per game.
The Bulls had a very strong start to the post-Derrick Rose era. Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade have taken over a kind of duo leadership, and it was very effective. They have struggled as of late though.
The Bulls lost three of the last five on a long road trip before coming into this one.
Chicago is currently 14th in the league with 104.4 points per game this season. They are the 2nd best team in rebounding with 48.9 boards per contest. The Bulls are 20th in the league in assists with 21.4 per game.

Cleveland may not run over the Bulls as they have done to other Eastern Conference opponents this year.
They are coming off a back-to-back and a loss to Milwaukee before that. So, there is reason to believe the Bulls could pull an upset…but they won’t.
