Looking for a place to discuss the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers? Well here you go. It's already halftime and the Cavs came out on fire. On the other side, the Bulls regressed after an insane shooting night Game 1. Probably the biggest news, Lebron James came out wearing a headband. The last time he switched up his domicile accessory, the Heat beat the Spurs in the NBA Finals. That's analysis for you.

In the late game, the Los Angeles Clippers take on the Houston Rockets. If I told you that the Austin Rivers has more playoff wins as a starter than Kemba Walker, would that bother you? Well it's technically true. Chris Paul missed the first game with an injured hamstring, and it is being reported that he will miss the second game as well. If the Rockets come out as lifeless as they did in the first game, this might be a sweep for the Clippers, which is crazy considering how great Houston and James Harden have looked at times this season.
