DeMar DeRozan led the Bulls’ attack with 41 points (an acceptable 16-31 shooting from the field), with seven rebounds and four assists in 44 minutes; Nikola Vucevic followed suit, finishing with a double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds, in addition to two assists, in 36 minutes; while Zach LaVine complemented the offense with 30 units, a rebounded ball and another assisted.

It was not enough for Giannis Antetokounmpo with his 33 points (11-20 in shooting ERA and 11-18 in free throws), with 18 rebounds and staying close to the triple-double with nine assists. The Bucks superstar performed, but it wasn’t enough to face the Bulls and their early lead.

Brook Lopez (25-6-1), Khris Middleton (18, with 5 of 7 triples) and Jrue Holiday (15-6-6) did not reverse the situation in time in the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee and travel to Chicago with a series tied 1-1 and three games to play in the windy city.
