Neither Chicago Bulls Or Milwaukee Bucks Have Enough Offense To Do Damage In East

The Chicago Bulls have a defense, but when it comes to the offensive side of the basketball, they are like a Kardashian with no makeup. As for the Milwaukee Bucks, they have been in the dark ages for a decade and continue to see minimal success. So when the two played Tuesday night, would either time make it out of the 70s or even the 60s?

It was an ugly game as both team shot poorly and committed double-digits in turnovers, but someone had to win. The Bucks were able to hang on for a 77-74 victory in the Windy City. The difference in the game was shooting percentage as Milwaukee shot 40 percent from the field and Chicago shot 37 percent.

Now, someone is going to read this and say “Chicago just stomped the Miami Heat by 20 points without Derrick Rose.” Yes they did, but with an 82-game schedule, that will happen from time to time. It’s the law of large numbers. The Bulls are ranked 25th in the NBA in scoring and they lost to the worst team in the East. Not to mention, the Bucks are ranked 30th in the league in scoring.

I believe it is safe to say that neither of these teams have enough offensive firepower to do anything or cause any fear. Chicago still has a legitimate chance at making the playoffs without Rose, but they won’t go far. Milwaukee will more than likely not make the postseason. No surprise there.
