Bulls Game 2 Notes For Wednesday @ Cleveland

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

* The Cavaliers have lost seven of their last eight best-of-7 playoff series when losing the first game of the series. They also have lost five of the last six Game 2’s when trailing a best-of-7 series 1-0, but all five of those losses came on the road.

* The Bulls have lost five of their last eight best-of-7 playoff series after winning Game 1. Two of those series losses (in 2011 and 2013) came against LeBron James while he was with the Heat.

* Over the Bulls’ last two games, they have outscored their opponents 61-31 in the first quarter, while shooting 9-for-14 (64.3 percent) from three-point range. Chicago has also allowed a total of just eight fast break points over their last two games.

* While the Cavaliers turned the ball over just nine times in Game 1, LeBron James was responsible for six of the nine turnovers. James has now turned the ball over at least six times in back-to-back playoff games for just the third time in his career, and for the first time since 2008.

* Kyrie Irving has joined LeBron James as the only active NBA players who have scored at least 26 points in each of the first three home playoff games in their career.

* The Bulls have gone 5-0 this postseason when Mike Dunleavy has hit at least a trio of three-pointers, and 0-2 when Dunleavy has hit two or fewer three-pointers.
