Bulls vs Bucks Prediction
The Bulls had three players score 20+ points in Game 4 on their home floor. It still wasn’t enough to overcome Giannis Antetokounmpo. For the second time in this NBA Playoffs series, the “Greek Freak” topped 30 points to lead Milwaukee to the brink of advancing. Antetonoumpo has now scored at least 27 points, corralled at least 16 rebounds and distributed no fewer than seven assists in three of the four games of this series. Soak it in folks, as we are witnessing basketball greatness!
That being said, it was far from a one-man show for the Bucks in their Games 3 and 4 victories. On Sunday, Antetonkounmpo received plenty of scoring support from Jrue Holiday and Grayson Allen. Allen’s 27-point effort followed up a 22-point performance in Game 3 which led all Bucks players. Bobby Portis also supplied an 18-point, 16-rebound double-double in the Game 3 win.
For all of the talk that this year’s Bucks team doesn’t have the depth and bench talent as last season’s championship squad, the likes of Allen, Portis and others have certainly stepped up in the absence of Khris Middleton. With the Bulls vs Bucks injury report, unfortunately, indicating that Chicago will be without a top scorer in Zach LaVine and a key perimeter defender in Alex Caruso tonight, the outlook for extending this series past Game 5 looks bleak. Unless Milwaukee doesn’t take a shorthanded Bulls roster seriously, they should win this game with relative ease.
