Giannis Antetokounmpo was sidelined with knee soreness and the Bucks had to face the Bulls without the MVP candidate and team leading scorer and rebounder. The Bucks came out slow and the Bulls outscored the Bucks 38-25 in the first quarter. In the second quarter Milwaukee bounced back and outscored Chicago 28-16 and take control of the game and never look back.
Middleton and Brogdon scored 22 points each and Lopez had 5 blocks to to lead the Bucks to the victory. With Giannis out with the knee soreness D.J. Wilson got to hit the floor again and in 20 mins he had 7 points and 8 rebounds.
The Bucks win tonight on the first of the 5 game road trip. Milwaukee now heads out west to face the rising Sacramento Kings followed by the struggling Lakers. Milwaukee remains red hot and on top of the NBA with a couple tough west coast games ahead of them.
