NBA Opening Night: CHI vs CLE Preview

LeBron James Jimmy Butler

The stage is set for the two biggest superpowers in the Eastern Conference to put on a show Tuesday evening when the Chicago Bulls invade Quicken Loans Arena for an NBA opening night battle against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Shark Bites
  • Cleveland went 3-1 SU in the regular season last year against Chicago.
  • The Cavs are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Chicago.
  • The UNDER is 5-1-1 in Cavaliers last 7 road games.

Fresh off a trip to the NBA Finals that ended in a 4-2 series loss to the Golden State Warriors, LeBron James' Cavs will be out for blood this year in order to prove they can parlay a star studded team on paper into an NBA title. Cleveland knocked off Chicago in the Conference Finals en route to the aforementioned Finals appearance, which should provide the Bulls with plenty of motivation to exact some revenge against the wine and gold.

"King James" and the perennially hobbled Derrick Rose have admitted they aren't 100 percent for the contest but are expected to play regardless. James has been dealing with lower back issues that caused him to miss practice in recent weeks, while Rose suffered an orbital fracture in the preseason after getting elbowed in the face and has stated he's been suffering from blurred vision.
