Oh by the way -- Rose is three rebounds shy of a triple double. He's got 14 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds.

LeBron firing away

LeBron James' career high for shot attempts in a playoff game is 33 -- and that was the famed double-OT game against the Pistons in which he scored the Cavs' last 25 points. He's already taken 27 shots tonight. Follow live

Not that it's a surprise at this point -- but Noah isn't even looking to finish right now. He's not looking at basket much at all.

Dave McMenamin @mcten

Shumpert gave the Cavs 37 pts in 6 1/2 quarters in this series before heading to the locker room with an apparent groin injury.

Michael Wilbon @RealMikeWilbon

True enough, this is the most talented Rose/Noah Bulls team...Also true: the 2011 team played with greater toughness and intensity...

History on Cavs' side

Teams with at least a 19-point lead at halftime in playoff games are 197-2 in the shot-clock era. The two losses? The Grizzlies in 2012 (vs. Clippers) and the Nets in 2002 (vs. Celtics). Follow live

Doc on Chris Paul: "He’s not moving well. It concerns me but we have a couple more days and we’ll see."

Bulls giving the game away?

Chicago had 10 turnovers in the first half, leading directly to 20 Cavaliers points -- and a 19-point Cleveland halftime lead. The Bulls have never won a playoff game that they trailed by more than 15 at the half.

LeBron being more aggressive

Chris Paul is officially out tonight. He's missing his second straight game after starting all 89 during the regular season and first round.

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Cardale Jones and some of Ohio State's players are on the floor hyping up the crowd. This place is rocking.

Dave McMenamin @mcten

LeBron is up to 20 pts after attacking the rim again for a dunk. Bulls timeout. Mike Miller greets Bron on the bench w/ a firm handshake.

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

If the Cavs are going to shoot close to 70% from 3 point land and about 60 percent from the field then let's just cut to Game 3 right now.
