After defeating the Portland Trail Blazers 119-111 behind Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 37 points, the Milwaukee Bucks will stay at home to host the Chicago Bulls.
This matchup with the Bulls will be the first matchup since the drama-filled postseason series. All eyes will be on Bucks guard Grayson Allen, as he played the best series of his NBA career against Chicago in the opening round, as he scored over 20 points in games 3-5. The Bucks also got their six man back from injury as Pat Connaughton returned to the floor against the Trail Blazers. Connaughton scored seven in his first game back.
The Bulls are once again led by the duo of Demar DeRozan and Zach Lavine, who are both averaging over 20 points per game. Chicago has a record of 7-10 and are sitting just outside of the final play-in spot, but the season is still young for the Bulls to turn it around. After the win over the Celtics, the Bulls snapped a four game losing streak after a strong start to the season.
Tip from Milwaukee is set for 7:00 P.M.
