Thus that brings us to the 2015 NBA Playoffs Round 2 and 5th Game with No. 3 seed Bulls of Chicago playing the No. 2 seed Cavaliers of Cleveland on Tuesday the 12th of May 2015 with the game to be played at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio with tip-off scheduled for 7:10 PM ET.

Heading into this 5th Game the Vegas odds are favoring the Cavaliers at home at -5 1/2 with the Total 192 and -220 on the Money Line, with the comeback on the Bulls of Chicago at +5 1/2 and +180 on the Money Line. After this 5th Game in Cleveland the 6th Game will be played in Chicago on Thursday the 14th of May with the Cavaliers at the Bulls with the time TBD. Then the 7th and Final Game (if needed) will be played back in Cleveland on Sunday the 17th of May 2015 with the Bulls at the Cavaliers with the TBD.

Looking back at the first 4 games of this 7 Game Series of the 2015 Western Conference Playoffs, the 1st Game in Cleveland was won by the Bulls of Chicago by 7 points over the Cavaliers 99-92. In the 2nd Game also in Cleveland the Cavaliers beat the Bulls by 14 points at 106-99. The 3rd Game in Chicago was won by the Bulls by 3 points over the Cavaliers at 99-96 and the Bulls led the Series at that point 2-1. Then in the 4th Game in Cleveland the Cavaliers beat the Bulls by 2 points on LeBron buzzer buster to win the game 86-84 and tie the Series at 2-2.

If you’re a fan of the Bulls of Chicago you must have the feeling that your Bull let that game just slide away, as they led the game with less than 1 minute in the 3rd quarter by 12 points, and then in the 4th quarter only managed to score some 16 points. A main problem for the Bulls in this game was P. Gasol did not play due to an injury and therefore in the game they only had 2 players in his absence that scored with double figures with Butler and Rose. Gasol is still unsure if he can start Game 5 and that will be another blow to the Bulls as they have lacked in their front court scoring without Gasol.

For the fans that may wager on the Cavaliers of Cleveland surely your aware of LeBron saving the 4th game to bring the series to 2 and 2 as he came close to be a triple double for these games as he averaged to date with 26.2 points, 11.3 rebounds and 9.4 assists, while at the same time he has struggled scoring from the field while making only 37.5 % on field goals, on 3-pointers only 10.6% and only nine assists and each game as averaged some 6 turnovers.

The Cavaliers claim Lebron’s struggling is a result of picking up the load for injuries to K. Love and dealing with the Bulls defense. Now, along with that, the team has 2 starters with recent injuries in I. Shumpert and K. Irving. Thus, if they don’t return to top form, then LeBron will have to continue leading the team, and his game is off, but maybe coming home will give him some new life, as on the road he’s average 39% from the field and when at home some 46%. In the ultimate 6 games the Cavaliers have played with the Bulls they are just 1 and 5 against the spread.

The known experts believe the present injuries will keep the Cavaliers from winning at home and predict the Bulls to win and cover on the road and take a 3-2 series lead.
