Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Chicago

The Chicago Bulls continued on the path of most resistance this season, this time with a 104-96 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

It was a bit surprising to see the Bulls go down like this, but the way the Bucks played was pretty much exactly the way they planned to beat the Bulls.

Milwaukee was able to block a ton of shots, 15 rejections total with seven swats coming from Larry Sanders, leading to plenty of fast-break opportunities for their speedy guards.

Chicago's defensive post game was terrific as usual, allowing just 34 points in the paint (with most of those coming on the transition game), but the three-pointers were deadly for the Bulls.

As the Bucks sank 10 of their 22 three-pointers, Milwaukee's big men were able to position themselves in the right spot to end up with a handful of offensive rebounds and eventually just outscore the vaunted Bulls defense.

It wasn't so much a loss for the Bulls as it was a win for the Bucks, as they were able to find ways to get open and make shots.

Sure, there were some uncharacteristic defensive lapses around the perimeter, but Milwaukee shot well late in the game, which led to the loss.
