In this playoff series the Bulls are looking at the possibilities of winning a 7th Title in the NBA and thus far they seem to be on track, at least in their games with Bucks of Milwaukee, and they are seeking to take the series to 3-0 in their favor winning this game 3. However, things can be more difficult now playing at the Bucks home court.
If you’re a Bulls fan and like to Bet on NBA at an Online sportsbook the Chicago team has had a lot of talk about D. Rose and if he will have any affect or impact on the Bull’s 2014-2015 postseason. Then will their rising star J. Butler get the media coverage he deserves? In the Bull 2nd game Butler shot a career high 31 points in the 46 minutes of his game time which lead them to their win in game 2. In game 1 he also scored 25 points and added the Bulls in the game 1 win, with 14 point in quarter 4.
If you’re a Bucks fan it’s not quite time to panic, but one has to be concerned for their Coach Kidd and the team going into this all important game 3, as it’s at the point of now or never for the Bucks has in NBA History no team has come back from being down 3-0 in these 7 game series of the playoffs. The Bucks had a good season and this start is somewhat disappointing for the team and fans and now Milwaukee has managed since back in 2010 to lose 8 consecutive playoff match-ups.
If the Bucks are to take this series to 2-1 instead of 3-0 they will have to improve their rebounding in this game, as in game 2 Chicago controlled the backboards and rebounds 63-47 as it was similar in game 1 at 53-42.
Imagine that the Bucks could not seem to stop J. Noah and P. Gasol who had an incredible 35 rebounds and got some 84.6% of all rebounds defensively. Some good news is needed at this point, and in game 2 it appeared their Bucks defense that normally smothers the opponents on offense seem to return as they game up 103 points in the 1st game and only 91 in the 2nd and allowed the Bulls to make only 38.4% of their shots. If the Bucks are to win this game they also need more scoring on the offensive side and make their 3-pointers and perimeter shots if they want to lower their deficit in the series to 1 game. The experts say that if the Buck continue their defensive performances and get their perimeter scoring elevated they will win this game 3 over Chicago 92-84!
