The Milwaukee Bucks haven't been able to beat the Chicago Bulls the past few seasons even with Brandon Jennings in the lineup for the majority of those contests.
Now, they may have to figure out how to do so without him.
Jennings' status is uncertain when visiting Milwaukee looks to avoid a 10th consecutive loss to Chicago and a fourth straight overall in the back end of a home-and-home set Monday night.
The Bucks (6-5) haven't beaten the Bulls since April 6, 2010, in Chicago, with Jennings playing in the last seven defeats. He scored a game-high 23 points and added seven assists in Saturday's 93-86 home loss to the Bulls, who outscored Milwaukee 12-5 over the final five minutes.
''It was kind of a grind-it-out game and when it really came time to grind it out, they did it to us,'' coach Scott Skiles said.
Jennings expressed similar feelings. The Bulls won the previous meeting 106-104 on a Derrick Rose jumper at the buzzer March 7 in Milwaukee.
