The Milwaukee Bucks are undoubtedly one of the better sides to watch in the NBA this season. They should have a very good chance when the season reaches the post-season.

But, they will have hopes of finishing the season at the top, and that is proving difficult at present due to the gauntlet being thrown down by the Celtics.

Boston are a seven-match winning run and have ensured that the Bucks have been able to close the gap at the top of the table. The Bucks meanwhile have won seven of their ten games this NBA season, and have appeared to be better on the road.

They have won five of seven on the road, while they have only won twice at home. The Bucks have won four of their last five, and come into this match in brilliant form.

Their only defeat during this run came against the Jazz. They bounced back from that defeat with a 121-119 win over the Thunder.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 35 points, while there was also double-digit points tallies for Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe and Sterling Brown.

Meanwhile, the Bulls are struggling to maintain any kind of consistency so far this season and have only won three of their ten games this campaign.

The lion share of their wins have come on the road as they have recorded three successes away from Chicago. They have won twice in their last five; with these wins coming against the Pistons and the Hawks.

The latter of those wins was followed up with a 117-94 defeat against the Rockets. Four of their players were matched for the most points in that game, but unfortunately, that was only a tally of 13.

Those players to record that total were Lauri Markkanen, Chandler Hutchison, Wendell Carter Jr. and Thaddeus Young.

They will need to play better against the Bucks if they have any hope of getting the win.
