The Milwaukee Bucks will look to get back to winning ways on Monday against a new-look Chicago Bulls team that made a major move at the trade deadline.
The Milwaukee Bucks will likely be particularly eager to take to the court on Monday, given the chance to wash away the sour taste from their last game.
Milwaukee’s last opponent, the Orlando Magic, will likely be fresh in the mind when they go head-to-head with the Chicago Bulls, and that may not be good news for Jim Boylen’s team.
Of course, the Bucks have yet to lose consecutive games at any point this season, and if that run was to come to an end on Monday, I’m not sure anyone would have predicted Orlando and Chicago being its downfall.
Even more importantly, though, with rivals reinvigorated by moves at the trade deadline, the Bucks will be determined to maintain their standing at the top of the Eastern Conference.
Of course, there’s also a possibility that Monday could provide the debut of the Bucks’ own recent acquisition, as Nikola Mirotic has indicated he’s optimistic about his chances of making his debut for his new team against one of his old teams on this occasion.
With all of that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the key elements to consider and watch out for ahead of Monday’s clash between the Bucks and the Bulls.
