What to Know

The Chicago Bulls head home again on Monday, but with the point spread against them by 8 points, it might not be quite the welcoming they would prefer. Chicago and the Milwaukee Bucks will face off in a Central Division battle at 8 p.m. ET at United Center. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Bulls simply couldn't be stopped on Saturday, as they easily beat the Atlanta Hawks 116-81. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 64-43.

Meanwhile, the stars were brightly shining for Milwaukee in a 111-100 victory over the Orlando Magic on Saturday. Milwaukee's SF Ersan Ilyasova filled up the stat sheet, shooting 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and finishing with a double-double on 17 points and 14 rebounds along with five assists.

The wins brought Chicago up to 13-20 and Milwaukee to 29-5. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: Chicago has only been able to knock down 43.30% percent of their shots, which is the fourth lowest field goal percentage in the league. To make matters even worse for the Bulls, the Bucks rank first in the league when it comes to field goal percentage, with 48.30% on the season. We'll see if the Bucks' 5% advantage translates to a win.
