Cleveland has won four straight and has a 15-3 record against teams with a record below .500 this season. The Cavaliers will look to improve that mark against Chicago, which has won four of its last five games.

Nikola Vucevic led the Bulls with 24 points and 16 rebounds in Saturday's 122-116 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Chicago recorded a 51.1 percent shooting percentage and 30 or more assists for the third straight game.

"I feel like we're getting better," Bulls coach Billy Donovan said. "I really do. I think we're playing the way I want to see us play, the way I think the game should be played. We're sharing the ball. We're trying to get good shots. We're scoring goals." more points."

The Bulls are monitoring the status of forward Patrick Williams, who has missed two of the last five games with a sore right ankle. Donovan said he is hopeful Williams will be ready to play against Cleveland.

The Bulls' improved play over the past month can be attributed to many factors, including the development of point guard Coby White. The fifth-year pro is averaging 22.7 points in the last seven games, while shooting 50.9% from the field and 47.9% from three-point range.

"The way he's playing right now, the growth in his game is unbelievable; he's at this stage," Bulls guard Zach LaVine said. "So we want to keep him in that kind of rhythm."

Cleveland takes the court for the first time since defeating the Brooklyn Nets 111-102 in Paris on Thursday as part of the NBA's Global Games series.

The star of the show was Cavaliers guard Donovan Mitchell, who recorded his fourth double-double of the season and a season-high 45 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals.

"Donovan is ready to go right now," Cleveland coach JB Bickerstaff said. "We talked earlier about how special it is to be a part of this game, what it means to the NBA to have him come here and choose you to represent the league in the worldwide game of basketball, and I thought Donovan was outstanding."

Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen continued to push for his second All-Star selection with his eighth straight double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Cleveland also got a boost from guard Caris LeVert, who scored 21 points off the bench against Brooklyn and is averaging 20.3 points and 5 assists in his last seven games. LeVert believes he should be considered for the league's Sixth Man of the Year award.

"I feel like I should be," he said. "Honestly, I think it's more of a team award than an individual award. I feel like we've done a great job of executing, especially in this process. And I'm just trying to give. When I look at the game, I'm putting energy where it's needed, but it's a product of great teammates."

Cleveland has won the last five meetings against the Bulls, including a 109-95 victory in Chicago on December 23. Chicago's Max Strus led the Cavaliers with 26 points and seven assists, while Allen added 19 points and 17 rebounds.
