(26-37) Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls (31-30)
The Bulls are 1 game over .500 and are holding onto the 8th spot in the East, but they have All Star Jimmy Butler back and he helped Chicago snap their recent 4-game skid.
The Bucks are currently on the outside looking in 6 games out of the last playoff spot in the East. Milwaukee played the Oklahoma City Thunder pretty close in their last game, but they lost that one and have lost in 4 of their last 6 games.
In their last games the Bulls beat the Houston Rockets 108-100 and the Bucks lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-96.
The Bucks have only won 1 of their last 8 road games.
It is no surprise that Milwaukee is several games under .500, as they rank 23rd in the league in scoring and 19th in opponents’ points allowed.
The Bucks do have a balanced team with 6 players averaging in double figures led by Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo. C Greg Monroe is the team’s 3rd leading scorer and he leads the team in rebounding. He has to play well tonight facing a Bulls’ team that does not have great inside defense.
The Bucks are only 8-25 on the road this season and have the 3rd fewest road wins in the Eastern Conference.
Butler missed a month with a strained left knee and he was big in the win over the Rockets going for 24 points. He and Gasol are the top 2 scorers for Chicago and they combined to go for 52 points in the Houston game.
The Bulls offense ranks 18th in the league in points per game and they are a much better squad with Butler on the floor, as he is averaging more than 22 points per game.
James went for 33 points in the Cavs last game and he has shot at least 50% from the field in his last 3 games.
The Chicago defense ranks 16th in the league in opponents’ points per game and they have not held their opponent to under 100 points in their last 16 games.
The Bulls are 20-11 at home this season.
