ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- A quick glance at the schedule shows Saturday night's game between NBA Central Division rivals Milwaukee and Chicago will be played at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Monday's game between the two teams is scheduled for the United Center in Chicago.
So why are the Bucks are preparing for two road games in three days against the Bulls?
Well, the short drive up I-94 and the success Chicago has had against the Bucks has led to many Bulls fans making the trip north. Bucks forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute said he only time he's been booed in his own arena was during a game against the Bulls.
"It's one of those weird things that kind of occurs on occasion," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "It's our home game, but there's as many Bulls fans in the building as our own."
Skiles believes the initial reaction to hearing cheers for an opponent's basket had a negative effect on some of Milwaukee's young players in years past....
BEST OF MAXIM
MILWAUKEE -- Initially, Brandon Jennings feared the worst.
With 23.1 seconds left, Jennings came down on the foot of a Chicago defender while trying to make a play to keep his team alive in what turned out to be a 93-86 loss. The Bucks point guard was down, seemingly in severe pain. He didn't put any weight on his injured left ankle while two of his teammates helped him off...
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- When a player is mired in a prolonged slump, sometimes simply working through it is the best solution.
Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova is in a rut. It happens. Maybe he's trying too hard to live up to the contract he signed in the offseason, maybe that has nothing to do with it. Whatever it is, Bucks coach Scott Skiles is faced with a dilemma. He has to walk...
BULL ON PARADE
Hopefully, all of that turkey from your Thanksgiving meal won't leave your head spinning like Bulls guard Nate Robinson did to the Houston Rockets.Check out this spinning lay-up that Nate accomplished in the fourth quarter of play:
MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- Carlos Boozer had a big night for Chicago, scoring 22 points with 19 rebounds, his fourth double-double in the last five games, as the Bulls pulled away late for a 93-86 victory Saturday at Milwaukee. Along with Boozer, Rip Hamilton scored 22 points and Luol Deng added 14 as the Bulls got back to the .500 mark and beat the Bucks for the fifth straight time in...
Ersan Ilyasova signed a four-year, $32 million contract over the offseason.
MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- During the Bulls' recent struggles, Carlos Boozer has seen his minutes dwindle, especially late in games, and has been a lightning rod of sorts for frustrated fans. But his effort Saturday could be a sign of better things to come. Boozer scored 22 points and pulled down a season-high 19 rebounds -- recording his fourth double-double in the last five games...
A visit to Milwaukee might be exactly what the Chicago Bulls need to end their longest slide in 2 1/2 years.
The Bulls can avoid a fourth consecutive loss Saturday night with a ninth straight win over the Central Division-leading Bucks.
Chicago (5-6) opened its five-game trip with a 112-106 overtime win at Phoenix, but has since dropped three in a row for the first time since a...
MILWAUKEE When Bucks coach Scott Skiles hinted pregame that he might make a last-second lineup change before Saturday's game against Chicago, the move he ended up making probably wasn't what many expected.
Center Joel Przybilla made his first start of the season, replacing center Samuel Dalembert, who didn't appear at all in the game. Skiles gave no reason for the move...
