It may have taken double overtime to finish the job, but the Bulls ultimately got the result they hoped for on Wednesday. They came out on top against Cleveland by a score of 132-123. The success was a return to things as normal for the Bulls, who in their previous outing suffered a shocking 105-95 upset defeat to the Pistons.

The Bulls got their victory on the backs of several key players, but it was DeMar DeRozan out in front who dropped a double-double on 35 points and ten rebounds. It was the first time this season that DeRozan pulled down ten or more rebounds. Another player making a difference was Andre Drummond, who dropped a double-double on 17 points and 26 rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Bucks had already won three in a row (a stretch where they outscored their opponents by an average of 21.3 points), and they went ahead and made it four on Thursday. They walked away with a 111-99 victory over Charlotte. The team ran away with 70 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those to pick up the victory.

Giannis Antetokounmpo continued his habit of posting crazy stat lines, dropping a double-double on 24 points and ten rebounds.

Chicago’s win bumped their record up to 28-31. As for Milwaukee, they have been performing well recently as they’ve won six of their last eight matches, which provided a nice bump to their 39-21 record this season.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Bulls haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 11.7 turnovers per game (they’re ranked third in turnovers per game overall). However, it’s not like the Bucks struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 12.4 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Bulls came up short against the Bucks in their previous meeting back in December of 2023, falling 133-129. A big factor in that loss was the dominant performance of Antetokounmpo, who dropped a double-double on 32 points and 12 rebounds.
