The Cavaliers came into Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls with their best record through 33 games (26-7) since 2008-09 (27-6). However, after a 106-94 loss, LeBron James admitted that progress has stalled on the defending champions’ quest for another title. Injuries certainly haven’t helped.

Kyrie Irving missed his third straight game (hamstring tightness), Kevin Love was out (food poisoning) and J.R. Smith has been lost for the majority of the regular season with a broken right thumb. James could not keep the Cavs’ 13-game winning streak intact despite 31 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. “It can [wear on you],” James said after playing through an illness that caused him to miss shootaround Wednesday morning. “It’s just tough. It’s slowing up our process because of what we’re trying to build.

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
