Bulls Lose a Freaky Close One in Milwaukee

Zach LaVine used the rim masterfully to complete a reverse layup and tie the score at 113.  If you think that’s a high score, you should know both teams were hovering around 90 at the end of the 3rd.  Defense was actually a thing in the final period.  Ryan Arcidiacono had a hand in the hustle and a few monster threes – both are becoming Bulls customs.  The Philadelphia Kid is a winner.  He didn’t shrivel when Giannis Antetokounumpo (glad I only have to Google that spelling 4 times per season) backed Arch down.  Sure, he got dunked on by the Greek Freak, but so did 7’0″ Robin Lopez. I don’t know anyone who can stop Giannis in the post, unless they reincarnate Wilt Chamberlain.  Rolo played really exceptional ball in front of his mom, who was wearing a Brook Lopez Bucks jersey but a Bulls winter hat.  Jabari Parker also played tough.  Although he wasn’t as efficient as usual, Jabari and Zach led the team with 24 points apiece.  The game all came down to a wild rebounding fit at the Milwaukee basket.  The Bulls were successful in denying Giannis the ball, so Brook Lopez drove and short-armed a runner.  The ball clanged back toward him.  Brook outreached Robin and tapped it up twice…then Eric Bledsoe slapped it back to Malcolm Brogdon, who found slick shooting Khris Middleton for a three.  Justin Holiday’s open three rimmed out and that was ballgame.  Bulls in Motown tomorrow.  Let’s get one.
