The Chicago Bulls improved to 2-0 on the season with a 115--86 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday.

Chicago was led by guard Nate Robinson, who scored 16 points on 7-for-9 shooting with 12 assists off the bench. Robinson was one of five Bulls in double figures. Carlos Boozer and Richard Hamilton each had 19 points, Luol Deng scored 14 points and Joakim Noah scored 10. The Bulls built a 60-35 halftime lead and out-scored Cleveland in all four quarters.

The Bulls shot 64 percent for the game and 40 percent from 3-point range.

Cleveland was led by Kyrie Irving, who had 15 points. Irving struggled shooting the ball, however, shooting just 6-for-15. He had turnover problems in the first half, committing four, but didn't have any in the second half.

Alonzo Gee and Anderson Varejao each scored 12 points for the Cavs. Cleveland is now 1-1 on the season after the loss.
