The Chicago Bulls came to Cleveland and reminded head Coach Byron Scott just how young his Cleveland Cavaliers really are. The Cavs looked like they were going to make a game out of it during the first period of play, then the wheels came off the Cavs defensively and offensively. The Cavs were lucky Derrick Rose didn't play or the outcome may have been worse than it was.
The only bright spot if you could say your team had one was Kyrie Irving got things going early with 11 points in the first quarter. Irving success against Chicago would be short lived whoever, he would only be able to find two more points before Scott sat his starters in the 3rd quarter. The Cleveland Cavaliers thought this game against the Bulls would be a good test for them. One they failed terribly.
The Cavaliers have to take a look at last nights game and use it for a learning experience. There is still lots of work to be done with this Cavs team both offensively and defensively. The Cavaliers were simply overpowered in the paint by the Bulls and at time the Cavaliers looked as though they had no answers to stop the Bulls and they didn't.
This was the Cavaliers second loss in a row and things don't get easier facing the Atlanta Hawks today. This young Cavaliers team is going to have to have short memories to put this loss to Chicago behind them to get back to the win column.
