CHICAGO--On JB Bickerstaff's birthday, the Cavs signed Bickerstaff to a new extension to be the Head Coach for years to come. But after a near comeback by Cleveland, Bickerstaff's team came up short against the Chicago Bulls 108-103

After the Bulls led 94-85 midway in the fourth, the Cavs fought their way back into the game. Love delivered on a key three-pointer to only by down by two 103-101 with 86 seconds to go. However in the play of the game, Shaquille Harrison got past Collin Sexton en route to an offensive rebound after a Cody White miss. Then after White's free throws with 13 seconds left, Sexton moved too fast up the floor and lost the ball and the game was over.

Bickerstaff blamed the loss on not finishing.

Cody White for the Bulls led with 20 points. Meanwhile, Collin Sexton led all scorers with 26 points alongside Andre Drummond's 21 points.

Cavs next game is this Friday night at the Charlotte Hornets (7pm Tip on WTAM 1100AM/106.9FM) as the Cavs continue their road trip while the MAC Tournament takes place in a near empty Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse due to coronavirus provisions set by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.
