CHICAGO, IL -- The Cavaliers came into Chicago tonight on a 6-game losing streak, and were looking to put an end to it. The Chicago bulls came into tonight on a 30-game losing streak, as their last victory was over the Cavaliers.
Jordan Clarkson was feeling under the weather today, as he ended up missing the morning walkthrough, but Clarkson ended up playing anyways. Clarkson, as he has done all season, provided a big time spark off of the bench, as he contributed 18 points, along with 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Dellavedova provided a big impact off of the bench as well, scoring 16 points. Cedi Osman, who scored his career-high in points on Friday night, was nothing but consistent tonight, putting up 17 points. Rodney Hood led all starters with 18 points, shooting 5-13 from the field.
With the fourth quarter winding down, Bulls' guard Wayne Selden Jr. hit a clutch three pointer to give the Bulls a 101-100 lead with just over a minute remaining. On the following possession, Larry Nance got his shot blocked, and Alec Burks kept his eyes up, as he grabbed possession of the ball and put up the go-ahead bucket to put the Cavaliers up 102-101. The Cavaliers defense then got a stop that they needed, as the Bulls sent Dellavedova to the foul line. Delly knocked down both free throws, and the Cavaliers made one last stop, as the Cavs squeak out a road victory by the final score of 104-101.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to stick to their winning ways on Tuesday night, as the Cavs will square off against the Washington Wizards. Tip-off is set for 7:00 PM ET, at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
