Cavaliers look to bounce back, remain perfect at home

Jan 2, 2009 - 11:10 AM Chicago (14-18) at Cleveland (26-5), 7:30 p.m. EST

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers aim to keep their perfect home record intact when they host the Chicago Bulls on Friday.

The Cavaliers are 16-0 at the Quicken Loans Arena this season, the most consecutive home victories to start a campaign since the Chicago Bulls won their first 37 contests to begin the 1995-96 season.

Cleveland also will try and rebound from a 104-95 setback to Miami on Tuesday, a loss which snapped its six-game winning streak. The 104 points marked just the fourth time the Cavaliers surrendered 100 or more points this season and they were the most since giving up 107 to Indiana on November 7.

LeBron James scored 38 points in Tuesday's loss for his seventh 30-point game in the month of December.

James has enjoyed plenty of success against the Bulls during his young career and the recently turned 24-year-old has a pair of 41-point outbursts in a pair of wins against Chicago earlier this season.

Chicago enters the game losers in four of its last five games, including Wednesday's 113-94 setback to Orlando. The Bulls were down by 27 at the break.

Joakim Noah had a season-high 19 points and 11 rebounds off the bench in the loss for the Bulls, who are 4-14 on the road this season.
