Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Lineups, preview & prediction 12/26/17

The Bucks record now stands at 17-14, enough to have them in sixth place in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls went into halftime leading 56-53. Andre Drummond added 21 points and 18 rebounds for the Pistons, who won for the fifth time in six games.

Milwaukee allowed 11 offensive rebounds in the second half and was outrebounded 47-41 overall. Twice in 11 days, the Bulls have bused here, been the aggressors and exited victorious.

Sure, they have one of the best offenses in the association.

Kris Dunn was huge tonight for the Bulls.

"You look at our defense since Niko's come back and since David's come back and it's been a big difference for our team", Hoiberg said.

The first 15 to 20 games of regular season action are typically an adequate amount of time to gain an initial understanding of an NBA team. They assist on 60.5 percent of baskets, behind Atlanta, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Golden State.

It coincided with the return of Nikola Mirotic, who missed the team's first 23 games after getting punched in the face by teammate Bobby Portis in the preseason.

The Bulls on Dec. 15 defeated the Bucks 115-109 with Bobby Portis getting a career high 27 points.

Kris Dunn vs. Eric Bledsoe - Dunn has been a major reason for Chicago's turnaround in form. In fact, only two players have led the team in scoring in any game this season: Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. The Bucks' bench is rather thin (what's with the DeAndre Liggins love?), but they shouldn't be as bad as they are without Giannis given the presence of Bledsoe, Middleton and Brogdon.

The Bulls were 3-20 and mired in a 10-game losing streak when they beat the Hornets in overtime Dec. 8.

David Nwaba had seven points, and nine rebounds.

It was a great team win by the young Bulls.

A clearly frustrated Kidd ended his answer about offensive rebounds with, "Until then (solving the problem), we'll still get out-rebounded and we'll still get our ass kicked". "He's not going to back down from anybody". Dunn made some big time shots down the stretch to give the team the win. They should keep this competitive.

The second came minutes later, as The Greek Freak was attempting to get past the Bulls' defense, only to lose his balance and fall to the floor.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has played the most minutes per game (38.0) and his impact has extended to the defensive end.

Despite being one of the league's bottom-third teams in regards to pace, the Bucks rank third in transition frequency, with 17.8% of their possessions coming in transition.
