The streak ends as the Bulls drop a close one in Cleveland, 115-112

By Sam Smith,

The Bulls winning streak is over at seven, the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday riding LeBron James down the stretch survived a last second Bulls attempt to tie in a 115-112 Cavs victory.

But the Bulls renewal continues unabated with multiple fourth quarter comebacks on the road against the East’s hottest team, a season high 34 assists in the Bulls eighth consecutive game scoring more than 100 points led by rookie Lauri Markkanen back on track with 25 points.

And supported by Nikola Mirotic still wearing the glass slippers with 10 fourth quarter points to help rally the Bulls from an 89-79 deficit, a season best 18 points with five rebounds and four assists from Denzel Valentine, a season high 14 assists from Kris Dunn and never a blink or complaint despite getting just eight free throws to 22 for the Cavaliers.
