Paul Zipser was allowed to join the Bulls right from the start. The forward contributed eleven points, four rebounds and two templates. Chicago’s best pitcher was Denzel Valentine with 34 points.
Not for the first time this season the Cavs had to get along without their head coach Tyronn Lue. The 40-year-old remained in the cabin at half-time with health problems.
“I’m not sure what it is. All I know is that he wasn’t feeling well before the second half,” said co-coach Larry Drew.
James was also very worried about his coach. When asked if Lues Gesundheit had influenced the Cavaliers’ season, he answered yes: “Sure, he is the captain of this ship”, said LeBron: “We are really worried about his health. This is much more important than basketball.”
Lue have already missed their third game this season, at least in part. Also in the past he had to fight again and again with health problems.
