* The only Eastern Conference team to have a better record than the Bulls (8-2) in 2014 is the Nets (8-1).
* The Cavaliers have allowed at least 100 points in each of their last six games – the second-longest active streak in the NBA (Lakers, nine).
* Kyrie Irving is one of just three players (also Kevin Durant and James Harden) currently leading his team in points, assists, steals, three-pointers and free throws made.
* D.J. Augustin came off the bench to score 27 against the Lakers Monday night. Over the last five seasons, only one Bulls bench player (Nate Robinson, 35 vs. Knicks on April 11, 2013) has scored more points in a regular season game.
* Luol Deng will be facing his former team for the first time tonight. Deng (10,286) is one of just five players who have ever scored more than 10,000 points for the Bulls.
