The regular season is coming to a quick end, and this game mattered a whole lot more to the Bulls than it did to the Cavaliers. Cleveland has pretty much wrapped up the 2-seed in the Eastern conference playoffs, but the Bulls haven’t wrapped up anything at all just yet. The Bulls are sitting pretty at the third spot right now, but they only have a one-game lead over the fourth spot and a two-game lead over the fifth. That means Chicago could not show up for a couple of games and see themselves fall all the way down to the 5-seed. Not only would they have to play a tougher team in that scenario, but they would also lose home court advance – and that cannot be taken for granted.
With all that said, the Bulls came up short today as the Cavaliers won by five. The Derrick Rose-less Bulls put up a good fight, but 13 three pointers from Cleveland was too much to overcome.
The Bulls may have lost, but Joakim Noah was able to make his Easter a little more memorable by putting Timofey Mozgov on yet another poster.
You gotta love when players like Noah do things like this because they aren’t afraid to show emotion afterwards – and that makes things so much better. Noah finished the day with six points (100 (percent shooting), eight rebounds, seven assists and two blocks.
Hopefully Rose can return to the Bulls soon to help them make a deep playoff run.
