After giving away Game 1 to the Bulls, LeBron James and the Cavaliers bounced back big as they took Game 2 from Chicago who were aiming for a 2-0 lead coming to their home court for Game 3.
However, now that the series is tied, 1-1, we'll expect both Bulls and the Cavs to aim at least a win in order to prepare for the latter stretch of the series.
James was phenomenal in their second matchup, scoring 33 points and not minding the sticky defense by the recently crowned Jimmy Butler, NBA's Most Improved Player this season. But the Cavs forward was not alone in carrying the load. Kyrie Irving had 21 points and played a major role in splitting defenses throughout the game. more >>

Despite giving up home-court advantage and missing one of their key players, the Clippers surprisingly took Game 1 of the series via dominating fashion.
In the 117-101 win, Los Angeles played without star guard Chris Paul but still had ample contributions from their role players. Furthermore, Blake Griffin was spectacular with 26 points, 14 rebounds and 13 assists. The Clippers even restricted James Harden to only 20 points in the first game, preventing him from going to the free throw line multiple times in a game. And still without Paul in the second game, Los Angeles hoped for the same result. more >>
