Things didn't go as planned for the Chicago Bulls the last time they faced one of the league's worst teams at home.
After sweeping a two-game trip in Florida, the Bulls are hoping to carry over their road success Monday night when they try for their 11th straight win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
While the Bulls (18-13) have the best road record in the Eastern Conference at 9-5, they're only 9-8 at the United Center.
They've dropped two of three at home, including a 91-81 loss last Monday that ended Charlotte's 18-game losing streak.
Chicago has shot a combined 34.4 percent from their field in its last two home games, but improved its offensive efficiency by shooting 45.9 percent in consecutive wins at Orlando and Miami.
"We haven't been playing great basketball and this is probably our biggest win of the year against the defending champs," center Joakim Noah said after the 96-89 win over the Heat on Friday. "It feels good.''
