MILWAUKEE – The King will see you now, Bulls.
For the fourth time in six seasons, the Chicago Bulls will face LeBron James and the team for which he has chosen to display his talents. Each of the previous three times, once with the Cavaliers and twice with the Heat, James has vanquished his foe.
The Bulls earned the right to face James in his first season back with the Cavaliers following Thursday night's 120-66 demolition of the Milwaukee Bucks, winning the first-round series in six games.
They now visit Quicken Loans Arena for Game 1 on Monday.
Mike Dunleavy scored 20 points as the Bulls finished four points from the NBA playoff record for largest margin of victory. Minnesota beat St. Louis 133-75 on March 19, 1956.
The Bulls shot 51.1 percent with 31 assists on 46 field goals.
The Bucks were trying to become just the fourth team in NBA history to force a Game 7 after trailing 3-0 in a series. Instead, they lost a game and their composure.
O.J. Mayo left the bench to challenge Jimmy Butler, drawing a technical foul. Giannis Antetokounmpo got ejected for a flagrant-two foul on Dunleavy, taking a run at him and plowing him over after he sank one of his four three-pointers.
Dunleavy could receive disciplinary action for a first-quarter shot to the throat of Michael Carter-Williams that went uncalled. Carter-Williams later drew a technical for elbowing Dunleavy.
