The last time the Chicago Bulls visited the Milwaukee Bucks, it resulted in an embarrassing defeat for the home team.
The Bulls’ play on defense in consecutive losses can also be considered embarrassing.
Some of those issues on defense were seen last week when these teams met ahead of Tuesday night’s rematch at the Bradley Center.
The Bulls will be eager to avoid a third straight loss after falling to the Wizards in a disappointing 114-100 defeat last night. Derrick Rose led the offense with 23 points, Jimmy Butler added 19 points and seven assists while Pau Gasol added a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds, but the Bulls have really slacked off defensively in their last couple of losses and the Wizards took full advantage, especially in the first half where they poured on 62 points. With the loss, Chicago drops to 22-14 on the season and 16-6 at home.
The Bucks will be looking to avoid a second straight loss after falling to the Knicks in a 100-88 defeat on Sunday. Giannis Antetohounmpo led the way with 28 points while Khris Middleton had 20 points but the Bucks were completely outplayed by the Knicks and fell behind by as many as 22 points in the fourth quarter before the Knicks rested their starters. With the loss, Milwaukee falls to 15-24 on the season and 5-17 on the road where they’ve lost three of their last five.
