The coaching change on the bench of Cleveland didn’t help at Chicago. The Bulls and Pau Gasol who flirted with a triple double (25 p., 10 r., 6 as.) beat the Cavs 96-83 in new coach Turonn Lue debut who after the game said that his team is not in “in good enough physical shape”.

The Cavs were booed by the Chicago crowd, however this is not something new “I’ve been booed before, along with a lot of these guys,” Lue said. “Every time I go to Philly I get booed, so, you know, that’s not a big deal. It’s something I got to deal with.”

LeBron James also just missed his first triple-double this season, finishing with 26 points, 13 rebounds and 9 assists. Jimmy Butler scored 20 points and Nikola Mirotic added 17.
