If you Bet on NBA at an Offshore sportsbook and are a Cavaliers of Cleveland fan they you have to be happy LeBron is back in Cleveland since in game 5 he was all around with 6 assists, 12 rebounds and 38 points as the Cavaliers took the 3-2 lead in this Eastern Conference 7 game series. So now he is tied with Michael Jordan for the most playoff games with 30 or more points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds, and now LeBron has the chance to set a new record. To date in this playoff series he has average 8.3 assists, 11.6 rebounds and 28.3 points.
However, in game 5 LeBron was near perfect in the 1st half with 24 point making 10 of his 12 attempts from the field, then in the 2nd half made only 4 of 12 and scored 14 points. Sounds like the Cavaliers have only 1 player, but they have a lot of other talent that will have to perform in this 6th Game and 7th Game if it goes 7, as you can be sure the Bull defense are going to press hard against LeBron as they did in the 2nd half of Game 5 and slowed his scoring dramatically. Thus far in the playoffs on their 4 road game the Cavaliers have won 3 to date.
For those that are fans of the Bulls of Chicago your former MVP D. Rose finally found himself as he had 12 points in the 1st but then lost it again as in the rest of the game he was 2 of 15 attempts in their Game 5 loss 106-101. He has been the star in their Game 3 and 4 with 30 points in each game, and if is injury he sustained in Game 5 persists, then the Bull may struggle, unless J. Butler and M. Duleavy can step up their performance as they have in the past.
But the Bulls are struggling with injuries as Gasol has a hamstring injury and is questionable, while Gibson was ejected in Game 5 and could get further punishment for the 6th game flagrant foul. If this is the case the Bulls would leave the Bulls with Mirocic as their only power forward in the game, which has not started a game this season and is only scoring 5.5 points per game. Yes the Bulls have some serious roster problems to contend with in their goal of winning game 6 and tying the series at 3-3? On the good side the Bulls in their last 6 games at the United Center they are 5-1 against the spread. But, the experts are aware of the Bulls problems, thus they predict the Cavaliers LeBron to have another great game and Cleveland wins this Game 6 and the Series.
