Cavs put perfect home record on the line vs. Bulls

The Cleveland Cavaliers are right where they want to be as they return home Friday with hopes of getting back on the winning track versus the Chicago Bulls at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavaliers had a six-game winning streak come to an end with Tuesday’s 104-95 loss to the Miami Heat in the back end of a home-and-home series in South Beach. LeBron James had a 38-point effort on his 24th birthday for the Cavs, who got 20 points from Delonte West.

Mo Williams had 10 points and five assists in the loss.

Cleveland will now put its 16-0 home record on the line tonight against a Bulls team that has dropped seven of eight on the road. The Cavaliers are the only unbeaten team in the NBA at home.

Chicago has lost four of its last five games overall and suffered a 113-94 defeat at the hands of the Orlando Magic on Wednesday at the United Center. Joakim Noah had 19 points and 11 rebounds to pace Chicago. Ben Gordon was the highest scorer for the Bulls with 18 points, as Bulls watched their five-game home winning streak come to an end.
