In a battle between Eastern Conference foes on Saturday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Chicago Bulls at Quicken Loans Arena. LeBron James and company will look to continue their stay atop the East standings, while the Bulls hope to hold onto a playoff spot as several other teams are trying to get into the picture. Chicago also enters this game with some new personnel, after trading away several key players to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Tonight's Bulls vs. Cavs live stream online and televised matchup will be presented through multiple sources.

Bulls' new faces?

Chicago may introduce several new stars into their lineup tonight. Just before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, the Bulls dealt away longtime star Taj Gibson along with sharpshooter Doug McDermott to the Thunder. In exchange, Chicago acquired guards Anthony Morrow and Cameron Payne, along with center Joffrey Lauvergne.

One player who wasn't traded prior to the deadline was the Bulls' Jimmy Butler. He'll remain with Chicago at least through the season, despite persistent trade rumors.

Butler is currently averaging 24.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, and five assists to lead his team.

An ESPN graphic stat has noted that the Bulls' newest star added this season, Dwyane Wade has won 14 times in 30 head-to-head meetings with LeBron James, including five of seven and the last three in a row.

Cavs keep on keepin' on

The Cleveland Cavaliers were quiet ahead of the trade deadline, although they picked up Kyle Korver long ahead of it. Korver has been fitting in nicely, as he's fourth on the team in scoring with 11.5 points per game, which certainly has helped in the absence of Kevin Love.

In his last 10 games, Korver also is averaging 14.7 points, and 61.9 percent shooting from the field in 27.3 minutes on average each game.

Even with Love out of the lineup, the Cavaliers are still seemingly in the driver's seat in the Eastern Conference, and still amongst the top NBA Championship favorites. The Cavs currently have a 40-16 record overall and are 25-5 at home this season.

Game odds, how to watch live

Cleveland will enter the NBA matchup as large 11-point favorites, with a -650 moneyline price at home.

The Bulls are listed as +475 underdogs, with the game's over/under points total at 216 points. Chicago has gone 15-13 ATS as an underdog this season, but just 13-16 ATS on the road. Cleveland is also 23-28-2 as a favorite, and 16-14 at home. One has to wonder if Wade and Butler might make this competitive until the final buzzer sounds.

Tonight's game will be nationally-televised on ABC network. Tip-off is scheduled for approximately 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time from Cleveland. Fans in select regions of the country may be able to watch a live stream feed of this game through the ABC Go website or compatible apps.
