Well, this was pretty much a standard Cavs vs Bulls game. That makes 10 straight losses to the Bulls and the Cavaliers were never truly in this game. Cleveland fell behind by 15 early in this one. They did make things interesting a bit midway through the 4th quarter, but the Bulls never really let this one get in doubt and as we’ve seen happen lately, the Cavaliers’ comeback bid was pushed aside down the stretch. Another double-double from Varejao was nice and Donald Sloan was the surprising points leader with 14 off the bench. But the Cavaliers defense had no answer for Marco Belinelli and Luol Deng.
