Shorthanded Cavs Beat Bulls, 114-109

Lebron James and the remaining Cleveland Cavaliers knew they were going to have a long night, even if they were playing the lowly Chicago Bulls. 

With six players on the injury report, including Kyle Korver on his 37th birthday, James led a patchwork lineup to a tough 114-109 victory in Chicago to conclude a 6 game, west coast road trip. Getting his 15th triple-double on the season, James led the way with 33 points to go along with 12 boards, and 12 assists. It was his 70th career triple-double.

To make matters worse, Head Coach Tyronn Lue stayed in the locker room after half time with an illness. Associate Coach Larry Drew took over in the second half. No word on the team on Lue's status for the Cavs' next game, Monday night, against Milwalkee. 

Jeff Green got the start tonight, and added 21 points in 43 minuets played. Jose Calderon pitched in with 9 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists. The Cavaliers are 18-8 when the Spaniard has started for them this season. Jordan Clarkson led the thin bench with 19 points, including 4 three pointers.

The Cavs come back home to take on the Bucks, Monday at 7:00 at Quicken Loans Arena. Coverage on Cleveland's Newsradio, WTAM 1100 will start at 6:00 with Cavs Now w/ Nick Camino.
