    In all seriousness, hopefully JR makes a difference.
    He'll keep Miller and Marion out of the rotation, so...hells yeah. Seriously though, Shump is just not the shooter that JR is. I think his ability to help spread the floor is about as huge as being able to bring Shump in with the second unit.

    I guess Thibodeau is selling some kind of "Cavs are not undermanned" reverse psychology stuff now.

    It's not as much about being undermanned as it is about chemistry. This Cavs unit hasn't played together since January. But Tom knows that, and I'm sure everyone on the Bulls roster knows better. Whatever makes ya feel better Thibs.

    GS should have trouble with LAC & CLE/CHI can't look past WSH

    I don't see anyone winning a series against GS but we will see.

    CLE has more team chemistry than CHI. CHI only had 20+ games with their starting 5 intact. Love & LeBron only missed a combined 14 games this season, whereas CHI went weeks without 2 starters

    LAC's backcourt is close to GS & their Frontcourt is far superior, as is their coach

    It also depends on Chris Paul's health. Curry slight edge over Paul (if healthy) and Thompson huge edge over whoever you through at him. I'll give you their front court and coach is better.

    I was thinking J.J. Redick. He shoots FTs better and 3's slightly worse & he's their third option, whereas Klay is the #2 option & gets more looks and better opportunities

    Totally disagree. Kevin Love and JR Smith were in the starting lineup two games ago. Mike Miller and Shawn Marion haven't gotten significant run since January. Couldn't disagree more. Nobody is buying what Thibodeau is selling. Miller and Marion can barely get back on defense, let alone play it.

    If you think the Bulls don't have chemistry right now, pay closer attention to them offensively. Butler, Gasol, and Dunleavy are playing off of Rose impeccably.

    Thts why I think the Cavs are screwed if Rose keeps playing the way he is. They can't deal with him, and handle rotating/closing out on all three of those guys. Honestly, I didn't see this coming from Rose. I always thought that once his athleticism started to go, he would. He was ballin Monday Night. No doubt about it.

    Total opposite of last game, I think. Cavs are hitting shots and the Bulls aren't. 'Course the Cavs are doing a little better job of contesting. Starting Thompson instead of Miller was another bonus.
