The Bulls are 2-0 against Cleveland this season, so despite their recent struggles, there’s no way they were going to roll over against the Cavs tonight.

Oh wait.

Watch Pau Gasol give Timofey Mozgov an uncontested slam during the first quarter.

In all seriousness, Gasol probably made the right call. Mozgov was coming in like a freight train and probably wasn’t going to be stopped without at least drawing a foul.

Plus, if Gasol gets hurt you might as well call this team the “Windy City Bulls.”

Cleveland leads Chicago 26-19 at the end of the first quarter.
