Always good to see the Bucks fall to the Bulls. I believe this makes nine in a row. Bulls also have all time series lead.
Not really happy with the overall situation despite the late defensive surge, which is pretty much a staple. Turnovers still too high. Shooting percentage still too low, though Hamilton kept it from being too bad. Heinrich's scoring average is crap, which isn't helped by the few shots he takes. But those he does take are usually wide open misses. Luol Deng also seems to have lost that mid-range jumper that was pretty much automatic last year. They clearly, as a team, haven't yet found their identity and chemistry, though they seem to be showing flashes of what they could be. I'd like to see the rookie, Teague, out on the floor a bit more, but it seems that will take a blowout game, either losing by a ton OR winning by a ton.
The Bucks have some great guard play, and Brandon Jennings was killing us. For a while he seemed unable to miss and worse, able to always get separation for a clean look at the hoop. The high pick and roll was a winner for them until the Bulls finally realized the pick wasn't rolling. Too bad Jennings suffered that ankle injury in the last minute of the game, as I would have loved to see how they adjust for the Monday game at the UC. Of course, he might not be badly hurt, but they did carry him off the court. It would be a major tough break for the Bucks to lose this kid for even one game, even though it would mean a tenth straight win for the Bulls over this team. But I prefer to see the Bulls beat a team with the opponent's best on the floor. Far more satisfying as a fan.
