TV: NBCSCH • Radio: WSCR 670-AM
Outlook: The Bucks (41-14) still own the best record in the NBA, but lost at home by 20 points to Orlando on Saturday with MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting out due to a sore knee. He's listed as day-to-day, so his status for this game is uncertain. ... Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.0 points, 12.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists. SG Khris Middleton is the second-leading scorer at 17.2 ppg, followed by PG Eric Bledsoe at 16.0 and SG Malcolm Brogdon with 15.7. ... The Bucks acquired former Bulls PF Nikola Mirotic at the trade deadline, but he's still out with a calf injury. ... The Bulls have lost twice in Milwaukee this season, including 116-113 on Nov. 28 when Middleton hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left.
