Chicago looked confident and determined as the Bulls took Game 1 on the road over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal on Monday.
The Cavs were without starters Kevin Love (shoulder – out for the season) and J.R. Smith (suspension), and will be so again in Wednesday night’s Game 2.
The Bulls held Cleveland to 42 percent shooting, including LeBron James‘ 9 for 22 performance.
The game has a 7 p.m. Eastern tip time and will be televised by TNT. Marv Albert (play-by-play), Chris Webber (analyst) and Rachel Nichols (reporter) are on the call.
