Share

CHI vs MIL Dream11: Hello NBA lovers! The NBA Playoffs First Round has already given some top-ranked teams hiccups and this is what makes the whole ride so much fun. In the East, the Heat is up two-one against the Hawks, the Celtics are up three-nil versus the Nets, and the 76ers are up three-one. On the other hand, the Milwaukee Bucks have a two-one lead versus the Chicago Bull and they will look to extend it here.

The Bucks recovered from a Game 2 110:114 loss and came up with a 111:81 effort, winning without Khris Middleton. Grayson Allen was the surprise leading scorer for them as he poured in five triples for his 22 points. On the other hand, the Bulls shot horribly from the three-point line as the Bucks built a strong lead early.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Bulls need DeRozan to fire

The shooting form of DeRozan has determined the course the Bulls take. The Bulls were struggling in the last game and just attempted nine Field Goals and five Free Throws. None of the Bulls’ players reached the 20 points mark and the team shot just 26% from the three-point line and overall shot below 40% from the field, the second time in the third game.

The Bucks had one of their more balanced scoring efforts. Four players were between 16-22 as Allen led the way. Bulls had 13 turnovers while the Bucks just had 9 but the biggest difference-maker was the rebounding end. The Bucks heated up for 55 rebounds while the Bulls captured 43 rebounds, thus the Bucks had 91 attempts from the field while the Bulls had 84 attempts.

For the Bulls, the highest-scoring quarter was just 24 and the team had no chance since the beginning of the game. Bucks’ move to start Portis due to the absence of Middleton and he hauled in 16 rebounds which was a huge factor. The Bucks bench also massively outscored the Bulls one and it can be a factor again.

Fantasy-related tips

Giannis Antetokounmpo remains the hottest option in the fantasy scenario when it comes to the Bucks. For the Bulls, DeMar DeRozan is still the favorite as a major Fantasy option but he can be a bit wayward at times, and not end up attempting shots. On the other hand, Nikola Vucevic appears to be the most consistent fantasy option for his rebounding and scoring. Bobby Portis produced a strong performance in the last game and in the absence of Middleton, he is a reliable option. Patrick Williams has been up-and-down on the offensive end and Coby White is not producing at the rate he was expected to.
