"I've watched the clips and I've talked with (Jared) Dudley, too," Antetokounmpo said after practice Wednesday. "I see they're helping a lot when I drive the ball. So I've got to find the open guys on the court. I've got to do a better job of that in Game 3." Antetokoumpo was just 2 for 11 from the field in the team's Game 2 loss. "I think from the time I've been in the NBA I've never had a good game against the Bulls, so that ticked me off," Antetokounmpo said. "I've just got to be more aggressive, but not necessarily to score. I've got to find other guys." The Bucks are 2 1/2-point home underdogs Thursday after losing the first two games of the series in Chicago.
