Bulls vs Bucks Game 2 Prediction and NBA Odds: Milwaukee Bucks will start as home favorites when they host Chicago Bulls tonight at Fiserv Forum.

The Milwaukee Bucks will look for their second straight win in the first-round playoff series of the Eastern Conference when they host the Chicago Bulls for Game 2 tonight. The Bucks’ lethal offense seemed out of touch in the first game which resulted in an early lead for the Bulls.

The defense clicked just at the right time otherwise the playoff opener would have been a shocker for Budenholzer’s men. Jrue Holiday reflected on the tough matchup with the Bulls in the post-game conference. Holiday said:

“We’ve got to win the ugly games. I feel like today was ugly. It was a battle and it was tough, but it was an ugly one.”

The Chicago Bulls can take the positives out of the first playoff game but they know that the Bucks are going to come harder in Game 2. The words of DeMar DeRozan after the game must have made the fans hopeful for the next contest. DeRozan said:

“Every shot I took tonight felt good. I guarantee you that me, Zach, and Vooch (Nikola Vucevic) aren’t going to miss that many shots again.”

The status of injured players, George Hill and Jordan Nwora is still questionable for the Bucks. The Bulls will hope for the availability of Matt Thomas in Game 2.

The Bucks ended their regular season on a strong note at 51-31 in the 3rd position of the Eastern Conference. They won 3 of their last 5 fixtures. The Bucks seemed to lose the momentum in the initial phase of Game 1 as they went into a 16-point deficit. However, they fought back to close the gap in the late quarters and took the lead as well.

This has been the best campaign for the Chicago Bulls after the 2014-15 season. They ended their regular season at 46-36 in the 6th position of the Eastern Conference. The Bulls seemed to lose the momentum in the last few games but they gave a commendable performance against the Bucks in Game 1. The plan to counter Antetokounmpo seemed to work well.

The Milwaukee Bucks are expected to dominate the Bulls from the start of the game in the next playoff clash tonight. They have one of the strongest offenses in this season and that will surely bounce back after a sluggish performance in Game 1.
