Here are some points from the game:

The Bulls turn the offensive scenario on the Bucks and shoot threes

It’s fair to say the Bulls haven’t had much for the Bucks since 2018-19, losing 17 of the 19 games (including the playoffs) the two teams played before Wednesday. They also lost by an average of 13.5 points.

So why hold on to what isn’t working?

The Bulls came out by moving the ball and letting it fly from deep, which was at odds with their usual offensive style. They made 13 three-pointers in the first quarter, nearly half their single-game average of 28.5. They keep shooting them too, from DeMar DeRozan to Javonte Green to Patrick Williams. Eight of the nine Bulls who played took at least one and seven made at least one.

square score: Bulls 118, Bucks 113

The Bucks had to surprise, as they were one of the best blocking teams of the three all season (No. 5, 31.1 allowed per game) and when key players were available they were one of the top contenders. Three percentage points. The Bulls made 12 of 23 threes and assisted on 17 of their 22 baskets in the first half. A hot start allowed the Bulls to take the lead in the first half.
