The Chicago Bulls, coming off a tough loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, go on the road to take on the Milwaukee Bucks who are fresh off three straight losses and just got blown out by the Toronto Raptors.
The Milwaukee Bucks are having a tough time recently and now that they are below .500 on the season need to be looking for something to get things headed back in a positive direction. The Greek Freak has been dealing with a slight ankle issue recently and while he is probable to play in this game I seriously doubt that he is going to really be at 100% tonight.
The Chicago Bulls have been struggling recently having dropped four of their last six overall and right now have Rondo listed as a game time decision with an ankle issue. The Bulls are top five in the league in points allowed per game and while they have struggled recently their defense has continued to be solid. Jimmy Butler is responsible for a very large portion of the offense on this team and is really in need of someone to share the scoring burden with.
Take the Bucks in this one as they have home court advantage and if the Greek Freak is anywhere near full strength there is no one on the Bulls roster that is capable of stopping him.
Milwaukee Bucks +1 -114
