Trailing 3-2 in the series, the Bulls want to extend it to Game 7. Pau Gasol, who didn’t play in Game 4 and 5, is expected to be in uniform to help the Bulls in both ends of the floor. Gasol’s defense, rebounding prowess and scoring ability are needed to topple the Cavs.

Jimmy Butler had 29 points, nine rebounds and three assists to lead the Bulls in Game 5. Derrick Rose added 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists but the Bulls couldn’t get back into the game after trailing 17 points early in the fourth.

On the postseason, Butler averages 23.2 points and 2.5 assists to lead the Bulls in both categories. Meanwhile Derrick Rose averages 20.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists. Pau Gasol averages 15.1 points and 9.9 rebounds in the first nine games of the playoffs.
