The NBA is set to present yet another thrilling Central Division showdown as the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls go head to head at 7 pm Eastern Time on Monday at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse stadium. Cleveland boasts a solid record of 22-15, with an impressive 13-8 performance on their home court. On the other hand, Chicago has struggled with a 19-22 overall record, particularly on the road where they have only managed 6 wins out of 12 games.
The Cavaliers secured their 4th consecutive after a victory against the Nets in their most recent matchup. One of the standout performers was Donovan Mitchell, who recorded an impressive double-double thanks to a season high 45 points plus 12 rebounds. However the catalyst to Clevelands’ success was Jarrett Allen. He gathered 19 points, 17 rebounds, and 7 assists, with his dominant presence at the rim.
In the meantime, despite not displaying a perfect performance, Chicago emerged victorious over San Antonio with a score of 122-116 last Saturday. The Bulls’ triumph can be attributed to a series of late game offensive plays, mainly thanks to Nikola Vucevic’s output of a double-double with 24 points and 16 rebounds.
Cleveland is counting on Mitchell to deliver yet another outstanding performance in order to secure a win this time around, especially with the absence of Darius Garland (jaw) and Evan Mobley (knee) for a long time. Jarrett Allen will also look to overpower the smaller sized Bulls roster, especially near the rim. As for the Bulls (outside of Lonzo Ball), they are at full strength for this match, which is great news to a struggling side.
Overall, even if Chicago boasts big names in their current roster, it seems their synergy is off in the court. Thus the Cavaliers maintain their status as favorites this time around.
