Even without Kevin Love, Cavaliers wary but confident heading into series with rival Bulls

INDEPENDENCE: Near the end of a shooting drill with J.R. Smith on Saturday, LeBron James called out to anyone who would answer to ask what time it was. “3:05,” a Cavaliers staffer answered and James grimaced. “Whooo, I’m gonna get cussed out,” he said. James had an evening appointment for which he was now running late, which presumably was about to draw the ire of his wife, Savannah. But now that they have an opponent for which to scheme, the Cavs worked overtime on Saturday. A practice that was scheduled to conclude around 1 p.m. ran more than two hours late for a handful of guys...

Bulls trying to reverse results against LeBron James’ teams in playoffs

Throughout his early years of postseason appearances, there was one team that always stood in LeBron James’ way. He eventually exacted some revenge against the Boston Celtics, but now the Chicago Bulls view James in a similar lens. No matter how hard they have tried, no matter what jersey he is wearing, the Bulls have never beaten James in the postseason.

This will mark the fourth time in the last six years James has met the Bulls....

The LeBron Hump

LeBron James is the gatekeeper to the Eastern Conference. The Bulls will face him in the playoffs for the fourth time in six years, and no series has ever ended well. LeBron James is the Bulls' white whale. James is on a mission to making his fifth NBA Finals in as many years, and the NBA storyline will always be about his personal accumulation of rings. The Bulls are on a much different mission. That is the mission to simply have that shot at an NBA title for the first time since 1998. And once you get past the injuries to stars, and the drama between Tom Thibodeau and the front office,...

Cavaliers don’t expect Love back in playoffs

Cavaliers don’t expect Love back in playoffs Kevin Love spent all those long, losing seasons in Minnesota aching for a chance to be part of the NBA playoffs. Love suffered “extensive” damage in his left shoulder and will probably miss the remainder of Cleveland’s playoff run, reducing the Cavs’ “Big 3” to a twosome. “We all have to pick our own game up,” said LeBron James, who along with Love and Kyrie Irving formed a trio capable of ending the city’s half-century title drought. Considered one of the league’s best “stretch” forwards, Love had finally joined a...
