The Chicago Bulls came to Quicken Loans Arena on Friday night and walked away with an easy double digit victory. The big news for the Cavaliers was the absence of Kyrie Irving, who did not play due to illness. Irving was activated before the game but it was unlikely that Coach Byron Scott was going to push him much against one of the league’s best teams. With Irving down, the Cavs simply did not have enough offensive firepower to keep pace with a Bulls team that shot 53 percent from the floor.
