Wednesday night, the Chicago Bulls will take on the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Chicago Bulls will travel to Milwaukee after hosting the Orlando Magic at home on Tuesday night. Chicago is playing well to start the year but once again the health of star Derrick Rose is a focal point that the Bulls wanted to avoid this year. Rose sprained both ankles last week against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even though he is expected to play in this one, Chicago can ill afford to have Rose hurt again. When Rose is healthy, he is one of the NBA’s best but in the past few seasons, he has missed more games than he has played. Fortunately, it’s still early in the season and Rose has plenty of time to come into form. The Milwaukee Bucks shouldn’t pose too much of a challenge for the Bulls even if Rose can’t go.
The Milwaukee Bucks will come into this one after facing the Indiana Pacers at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday night. The young Milwaukee team is starting this season the same way that they did last season and that isn’t a good thing. New Head Coach Jason Kidd is trying to instill a winning attitude in his young charges but that isn’t easy to do. The Bucks haven’t been contenders in a long time and getting the team to believe that they can win will be one of Kidd’s toughest challenges. Taking on a solid team like the Bulls won’t do much to inspire confidence in the Bucks. Chicago is going to hammer the Bucks at every turn and it could be a long night for Milwaukee.
