The Bulls won their season opener against the Sacramento Kings, 93-87 behind a strong performance from Joakim Noah. On Friday, they'll take on a Cleveland team that also won their season opener, 94-84 over the Washington Wizards. Reigning Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving looked strong in the win, scoring 29 points.
