If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Thursday when the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls meet at United Center.

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS (47-26): Cleveland is struggling at the defensive end this month, and coach Tyronn Lue was critical of his team’s overall speed after Monday’s setback. “The crazy part about it. We start off the right way, but teams are so much faster than us,” Lue told reporters. “They just look so much faster than we are. I mean. I mean, damn. It just looks like, just beat us on the dribble, transition, just looking faster.” The Cavaliers are surrendering an average of 114.8 points while going 2-4 over the last six games.

ABOUT THE BULLS (35-39): Chicago struggles with consistency and has yet to post back-to-back wins this month. “A lot of times when we get slapped in the face, when we get punched in the mouth, when the adversity hits us, we don’t handle it well,” Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters. “We talk about it, every game it’s going to happen at some point. You’re going to have to handle adversity, you’re going to have to get through it and it will determine the outcome of the game.” The Bulls always seem to get up to face Cleveland and will be bidding for a four-game season series sweep on Thursday.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cavaliers listed as 5½-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game’s total is sitting at 211½.

The Cleveland Cavaliers figure that it’s only a matter of time before they pull out of their recent funk and re-establish themselves as the top team in the Eastern Conference and an NBA title contender. The Chicago Bulls, who host the Cavaliers on Thursday, are hoping Cleveland takes its time finding that playoff switch.

The Cavaliers fell to 6-9 in March with Monday’s embarrassing 103-74 loss in San Antonio and dropped a half-game behind the Boston Celtics in the race for the top spot in the East. “It’s a delicate time right now for our team,” Cleveland superstar LeBron James told reporters. “A lot of people talking … guys in the locker room. I’m not saying it’s for the bad. We’ve got a couple guys that’s shown leadership, some guys that’s been in the fray before that’s giving their opinions.” The Bulls won three of their last five games and did themselves a big favor by earning a 109-94 win over a team in front of them in the standings at the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. Chicago currently occupies the No. 9 spot in the East and will play its next two games against teams above it in the East before finishing out the regular season with six straight against teams out of contention.

Chicago was a 109-94 winner in its last match on the road against the Bucks. They covered the +6.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 203 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Cleveland, they were a 103-74 loser as they battled the Spurs on the road. The Cavaliers failed to cover in the match as a +5-point underdog, while 177 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
