The Cavs are favored (-3.5), and would go with the Bulls here. Their head coach does not get nearly enough credit for the job that he does, and think that Vegas sometimes underestimates him. Know that Derrick Rose is not playing, but would not call the Cavs an upper echelon team in the league. Just think the Bulls will grind this one out, and get a close win but have admittedly been wrong once or twice before.
The Bulls won their MLK game in stunning fashion with a Taj Gibson layup at the buzzer, which will probably haunt Pau Gasol’s nightmares for the next month or so.
“They always crack jokes on me in practice about trying to use my left and today I proved them wrong,” Gibson said after the win.
Was lucky enough to tape that game, and though Gibson made a clutch shot would have to say that the pass was the most impressive part of that play at least to me. I’m old school like that though, so apologies to sound like an old man.
That is all for today and will leave you with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom.
