The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped their fourth game in a row with a 104-88 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

It’s hard to point to the low point of a disappointing season for the Cleveland Cavaliers all around, but this might be it. The Chicago Bulls came into this game on a ten-game losing streak and are the second-worst team in the league, but you wouldn’t have known that from watching this one yesterday afternoon. The Bulls dominated every facet of this game and ran the Cavs off their home court again.

Chicago dominated this game from start to finish. They jumped out to an early lead and turned that into a 31-18 advantage after the first quarter, per ESPN. Cleveland battled back in the second and cut the deficit to just five points, but that was as close as the Cavs ever got as the Bulls pulled away for an easy win in the second half.

Zach LaVine led the way for the Bulls. He finished with a game-high 25 points on 9-of-16 shooting, including going three-of-six from distance. He again demonstrated why he’s a franchise cornerstone for Chicago in the coming years.

Collin Sexton led the Cleveland Cavaliers in scoring, as he put up 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting with three rebounds and two steals, but had no assists in the game, per ESPN. Ante Zizic had a solid afternoon for Cleveland’s frontcourt as he finished with 13 points, nine boards, and two assists.

Other than that, though, there was not a whole lot to be excited about as a Cavs fan in terms of on the court.

Here’s what we learned from another one-sided loss.
