Cavs vs. Bulls, Game 19

CAVS (14-5) 101, CHICAGO BULLS (7-10) 87
at Quicken Loans Arena
TV: Fox Sports Ohio, ESPN
Radio: WTAM

WHAT HAPPENED: The Cavs picked up their defense in the second half. They also took care of the basketball and didn't have a turnover after halftime.

It added up to an easy victory over the Cavs' Central Division rivals.

The Cavs are now 8-2 at home. The Bulls nipped the Cavs on Nov. 5. Boston was the other team to win at The Q this year.

PINK SHOES: The Cavs wore pink shoes for breast cancer awareness night. But not all of them wanted to wear them. G Delonte West took one look at the pink shoes and tossed them across the locker room. One almost hit a cameraman. He picked it up and dropped it near West's locker.

PUPPET SHOW: The new Nike puppet show, featuring LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, is out.

NOTES: F LeBron James posted his third consecutive double-double with 23 points, 11 assists and six rebounds. He's averaging 6.3 assists in the first quarter of the last three games.
-- The Cavs didn't turn the ball over in the second half. That hasn't happened since they had no miscues in the first half against Portland on March 19, 2009.
-- The Cavs' bench is averaging 43 points in its last three games.
