In what should be one of the more entertaining playoff series of the NBA postseason, the No. 3 Chicago Bulls take on their heated division rival Cleveland Cavaliers, the second seed, in an Eastern Conference semifinal.
Chicago is coming off a 4-2 series win over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Cavs are well-rested after sweeping the Boston Celtics, but it comes at a price – starting power forward Kevin Love dislocated his left shoulder in Game 4 and is done for the season.
Game 1 is Monday night in Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena and will tip at 7 p.m. Eastern.
The action can be seen on TNT. Marv Albert (play-by-play), Chris Webber (analyst) and Rachel Nichols (reporter) are on the call.
Here’s a look at the complete series:
