The Cavaliers will be a tough spot as they are on a back to back after playing host to Miami on Wednesday. The Bulls will have the benefit of rest. There has been some drama surrounding this Cleveland team in LeBron’s first season back with his home town club. The chemistry has been slow to develop as we have outlined since the preseason. Preseason injuries to the Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving met that the Big 3 for Cleveland didn’t have the full preseason to jell with one another. Irving has been able to up his game working alongside LeBron. Kevin Love has been slow to find his grove offensively with Cleveland. The Cav forward is shooting just 42% which is a career low for the seven year veteran. It is no cinch that Love will sign with the Cavaliers or if the Cavs even want him as he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of next season. Love can opt out of his contract this year which may help the Cavaliers as Grizzlies center Marc Gasol will be a free agent and will be a huge upgrade over Love. Gasol to Cleveland will be a monster signing if it happens. LeBron has been jabbing Love as well as the Cavaliers head coach. One must wonder if this is a move to make Love fell uncomfortable in Cleveland to force him to opt out so the Cavs can go after Gasol. The impact this has on the court will be interesting to see as we approach the final third of the season as clubs begin their preparation for the playoffs. Chicago is going through a change from a defensive club to an offensive one. The offensive numbers had been pretty pathetic in reason years but the shooting percentages from the floor and three point line have improved. With that the defense has not been near the top of the league but still hovers in the upper third of the NBA.
