Butler aims to keep scorching nets

Butler aims to keep scorching nets

The Cavaliers are coming off back-to-back losses heading into tonight’s game at Chicago. Can LeBron James & Co. get back on track in the Windy City?

Handicappers clearly have their doubts. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives the Bulls odds of -140 to take care of business at home. Cleveland, on the contrary, enters the United Center as a +120 underdog.

Bet on the Action

Yesterday, the Clippers waltzed into Quicken Loans Arena and hammered the class of the Eastern Conference. James was held to a season-low 16 points in the 113-94 defeat. The four-time MVP also committed five turnovers, giving him 17 in the past three tilts.

Chicago isn’t operating at peak form, either. Earlier this week, Fred Hoiberg’s group dropped a 96-90 decision to the Lakers. One bright spot: Jimmy Butler has notched at least 20 points in 11 straight contests.

It goes without saying that the majority of eyes will be trained on the matchup between close friends James and Dwayne Wade. Still, we’re perhaps more interested to see if the Bulls’ much-maligned bench can finally help the stars who litter the starting lineup. Either way, bank on a steady flood of buckets.
