Derrick Rose is a scary match up for most NBA teams, but he's a nightmare for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

They can’t get two straight against the NBA’s top-seeded playoff team?

Well.

The Chicago Bulls will try to even up their first-round Eastern Conference series against the Cleveland Cavaliers at the United Center on Sunday.

If Kirk Hinrich can play as he did in Game 3 and Derrick Rose does his thing, the Bulls got a shot Sunday. One of the Cavaliers weaknesses is they have trouble defending guard penetration.

So Rose has been a handful and when Hinrich is playing well, the Bulls are a handful. However, the Cavaliers do have LeBron James so they should take care of business, take Game 4 and close out the series Tuesday at home in Quicken Loans Arena.

If they lose Sunday, oh boy, now we got a series.

After playing seven overtimes so far in this series, don’t think the Celtics are even though it will be in Boston. However, the defending NBA champions will likely come with just enough to outlast the Bulls.

Maybe.
