CHICAGO — A win Saturday night for the Cavaliers meant they would move into playoff position, but the struggling Bulls had revenge in mind in Chicago.
Former Cavalier Carlos Boozer came out on fire, scoring 11 points in the first quarter as the Bulls raced out to a seven-point lead, but Andrew Bynum kept the Cavs in the game with six of his 19 points in the first.
Tristan Thompson chipped in with 10 points, two on a putback dunk, and 7 rebounds.
Kyrie Irving struggled all night. He shot just 5 for 16 and was outplayed by DJ Augustine as the Bulls pulled away to win 100 to 84.
The Cavs are now 2-12 on the road this season.
They return home Monday to host the Pistons.
