LeBron James says he may have to change his mindset and be more aggressive in Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls. With the Cleveland Cavaliers missing starters Kevin Love and J.R. Smith, the Cavs dropped Game 1 on Monday. James scored 19 points and added 15 rebounds and nine assists, but he often deferred to others instead of driving to the basket and that may have to change if the Cavs intend to even the series at home tonight ( 4, TNT). Also, Bulls star guard Derrick Rose says he has no pain in his right shoulder and doesn’t expect any problems going into Game 2 tonight. Rose sustained a “stinger” in his shoulder late in the series opener. – AP
