The Milwaukee Bucks will look to snap a three game losing streak when they travel south to Chicago to take on the Chicago Bulls.
Milwaukee fell to the Boston Celtics on Christmas Day after they could not stop Celtics star Jayson Tatum, who scored 41, with 20 of those coming in the 3rd quarter where the Celtics outscored the Bucks by 13. The Bucks will look to be more efficient on the offensive end without Khris Middleton, who has been out the past few games with his lingering knee injury. If Milwaukee wants to get back to the NBA Finals and potentially bring home another championship, they will need more output from their bench, with players like Joe Ingles, Pat Connaughton, and Bobby Portis.
Chicago is also coming off of a loss, as they were defeated by the Houston Rockets 133-118 Monday night. The Bulls were able to beat the Bucks in their last matchup back on November 23rd 118-113. Demar DeRozan was the main reason for the Bulls win, as he dropped 36 points in 37 minutes played. Chicago had balanced scoring in the win throughout, with 6 players being above 10 points in the win.
Tip from the United Center is set for 7:00 P.M.
