The Milwaukee Bucks (39-24) took down the Chicago Bulls (26-37), 108-98, tonight inside the United Center. It’s the 12th-consecutive win for the Bucks over the Bulls.
With the win tonight, the Bucks clinched their third consecutive Central Division championship.
Brook Lopez and Khris Middleton each scored 22 points respectively. Bobby Portis and Jrue Holiday each scored 16 points respectively. Jeff Teague added 11 points and Bryn Forbes scored 10 points to round out the double-digit scorers for Milwaukee.
It’s nice to finally see the Bucks close out a game for a change. Especially against a bad team, coming off the pathetic loss from last night.
The 1-seed is a long shot for the Bucks, but if they still want a heartbeat at it, then Sunday is a HUGE game.
The Bucks will host the Brooklyn Nets (43-20) on Sunday, May 2 at the Fiserv Forum. Tipoff is set for 2:30 PM (Central Time) and will be nationally televised on ABC.
