Cavaliers sink the Bulls

The victories of the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Clippers against the San Antonio Spurs were the most outstanding results of the second phase of the NBA after the dispute of the All-Star Game.
In the Central Division with the Cavaliers they continue to lead after winning an incontestable 106-95 over some decimated Bulls.
LeBron James had 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists; point guard Kyrie Irving reached 19 points, while Kevin Love and center Tristan Thompson finished with two double-doubles.
Love had 15 points, 15 rebounds, two assists and one block, while Thompson had 16 points and 10 grabs (nine of them defensive).
The Cavaliers (39-14), who got their fourth consecutive win and the eighth in the last 10 played, always kept control of the game and the scoreboard, without the Bulls having a chance to win.
Although point guard Derrick Rose had 28 points, this time Pau Gasol could not be a winning factor for the Bulls, who once again suffered the absence of shooting guard Jimmy Butler due to injury.
Gasol contributed 14 points in the 31 minutes he played and was never able to beat the rival tall men in the fight in the inside game.
The Spanish international made 6 of 13 shots from the field, missed a three-point attempt, and hit just 2 of 4 free throws.
