Bench leads Cavs over Bulls

The Cavaliers quickly silenced all the critics about their poor field goal and free throw shooting, at least for one night. The offense played like they’re capable of, even against a usually solid Bulls defense, as they routed Chicago 113-94.

The Cavs’ bench bunch played a key role in the victory. Donyell Marshall and Anderson Varejao each scored 15 and Sasha Pavlovic exploded for 16 points as the bench scored 56 points. The Cavs built an early 30-18 lead as the first quarter came to a close and then cruised from that point. LeBron finished with a mere 19 points but had 12 assists as the team did a much better job of working the offense and spreading ball around. We’ll be in much better shape if we can get consistent play from our bench.

In addition, rookie Shannon Brown scored his first two points of his NBA career on a layup in garbage time.
