The Cavaliers showed up at the United Center last night having lost 15 games in a row and 19 straight on the road. They left with a 16-game losing streak and are now one loss shy of setting a new franchise record for consecutive road losses. So, on the surface, it appears the Bulls took care […]

Game 3: Bulls 108, Cavaliers 106

The Bulls snuck into the NBA playoffs on the final day of the regular season. Given the number of injuries and the amount of drama they went through during that 82-game gulag, that accomplishment was nothing short of amazing.
