MIL vs CHI Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls

Share

MIL vs CHI Dream11: NBA keeps getting growing its fanbase and the Indian subcontinent has also been encompassed within the expansion. The up-and-down action of the NBA is well appreciated because of the top-notch athleticism, varied shooting skills, and overall, it has been considered as the most athletic league in the world. And as the league towards the Postseason, we will only see more intensity. And to further the Regular Season chapters, the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Chicago Bulls.

The Bucks are the defending champions and they have been hovering in the second-to-fourth rank range as the Conference play in the East is highly complicated and the picture isn’t clear in the top seven ranks yet. On the other hand, the Bulls slipped from the first to the fifth slot after a troublesome run due to the team’s weak defense and inability to win away from home. However, with the duo of DeRozan and LaVine, the team can still salvage the season.

Host: Milwaukee Bucks
Visitors: Chicago Bulls

Venue: Fiserv Forum

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

The Bucks come into this game after losing to the Timberwolves 119:139 as their leading player Antetokounmpo missed the last game.

The Bucks have been doing a great job of maintaining a top-four position but the way things are going, it is still unclear where they will finish. One thing is clear, Giannis is vital to the team’s success and whenever he has missed a game, the team has suffered blowout losses as both sides of the floor get compromised without him. On the other hand, it is also a must to point out that the team balance is disturbed if either Middleton or Holiday also miss out. The bench has been a little weak but with Connaughton’s return, there is some depth. Allen will play a crucial role as the perimeter shooter once the Playoffs arrive. Overall, the Bucks are likely to receive fiercer resistance in the Playoffs this season but as long as Giannis is healthy, the squad stands a huge chance to clinch the championship again.

After a poor three-game losing streak, the Bulls beat the Raptors 113:99 as LaVine and DeRozan combined for 51 points.

The Bulls had been playing a tremendous brand of basketball when the lineup of Ball, LaVine, DeRozan, Green, Vucevic, and Caruso was consistently active. With the injury to Ball, the lineup balance is disturbed as his scoring, rebounding, playmaking, and defense all played a vital role earlier. The Bulls’ isolation-heavy style can backfire at times, especially when the team is playing away from home. The team defense has also been weak on the road and the squad needs to get it together as the Playoffs are nearing. During the postseason, there are bound to be amped-up squads like Celtics, Bucks, Heat, Sixers, etc, teams that have shown better ability to win away from home, especially in Heat, Sixers, and Celtics lately. So how will the Bulls respond after getting Patrick Williams back?

Where to watch NBA Live Score?

Isn’t it fun to watch DeRozan or LaVine taking over the offensive end or Giannis just driving to the rim with no answer from the opposition? However, in not the best news for Indian NBA fans, you can’t catch this match on the streaming services JIO TV and Voot, two designated streaming platforms for NBA games in India. So how can you watch this game? Therefore, I recommend purchasing the annual subscription(599 rupees per year) in the NBA League Pass and you can both watch live games and also go through the full game replays. To learn the scores, news, stats, and other NBA stuff, go to the official website of the NBA.
