The Bulls failed to win their two consecutive home games against the Cavaliers, who beat them by 121-98 on Sunday taking the series to a 3-1 that could be done on Tuesday, April 27, when the action returns to Cleveland for game 5, where the Cavs are planning on celebrating their pass to the second round of the playoffs.
LeBron James was as impressive as usual, finishing the game with 40 points, just one more than the total amount he scored in the two previous meetings against the Bulls, whom are now concerned about their unfavorable situation as they are now on their way to Quicken Loans Arena to face James, Shaq and the rest of the Cavs on game five.
King James ended with triple double numbers, as besides his forty points, he also contributed to Cleveland’s victory with twelve rebounds and eleven assists.
The Bulls are clearly a team that is demoralized after playing so bad during the playoffs, and if the Cavaliers as a whole are not the reason for their low performance during this postseason, LeBron must be.

It is clear that the Cavaliers have some work to do concerning Shaq if they want to count with the full help of “The Diesel” during game five at Chicago, but this is not certain as O’Neal has not played as expected during the playoffs, with the exception of game 1, where he actually delivered, but then he failed to do the same in the following matches.
For the Bulls, Joakim Noah (plus twenty rebounds), Derrick Rose both contributed with 21 points and Luol Deng with sixteen. For the Cavs, Antawn Jamison ended up with 24 (twelve in the third quarter) while Mo Williams finished with 19 points.
Rose might end up being a low point for Chicago on game five, as he had a collision against Shaq on game 4, but the 21 year old point guard said that he will be ok to play the Cavs in their court on Tuesday.
Noah and Derrick Rose are certainly the main men, who can actually make a difference for the Bulls on the fifth game of the series, and both players say that they are high in what confidence concerns; therefore, this is expected to be one of the most interesting games in the first round of the playoffs, but, as per favorites, the Cavs are surely the ones.
