Open Game Thread #3: Bulls at Milwaukee Bucks

[Thanks to 'Big D' for today's game preview. -Matt

The Bulls will attempt to win their first game of the season tonight when they travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks (7:30 CDT, WGN).

The Bucks are also 0-2, and they're coming off a bizarre ending to their game last night in Charlotte.  Trying to come back late in the game, the Bucks' Mo Williams drove in the lane and hit a layup with 0.6 seconds left.  Unfortunately, the Bucks were down by 3 at the time.  So look on the bright side; as bad as the Bulls have played in the first two games, at least they've known what the score was at all times.

The big story with the Bucks has been the progress of Yi, but so far, he's had trouble staying on the court.  In their season opener, he played relatively well, scoring 9 points (on 4-5 shooting) in 25 minutes.  Last night though, he battled foul trouble again and scored only 2 points on 1-6 shooting in 15 minutes.  Of course, it doesn't really matter how he plays; barring foul trouble, he'll be getting plenty of minutes this season.

The Bulls were 4-0 last season against the Bucks, but of course, the game everybody remembers is Ben Gordon's 48-point outburst last March.  Actually, maybe people don't remember it, because the game wasn't even televised in the Chicago area.  The Bucks aren't known for their tough defense (or really for playing any at all), so hopefully Gordon can go off again tonight.  He might have to if Michael Redd lights up the Bulls the way he did last season.  Redd scored 52 in that game last March, and averaged 38 a game against the Bulls last season.

The Bucks had a ton of injuries last season and spent most of the second half of the season in full-fledged tank mode (unsuccessfully, as it turned out), so they should be better than they were last year.  Nevertheless, this is a game the Bulls should win - but we all said the same thing last night, didn't we?
