Bulls 87, Milwaukee 71
Home has not exactly been where the Bulls' heart or fortunes lay this season but they're off to a solid start on this current homestand at the United Center. As with Saturday's win against Phoenix, Monday night's game against the Bucks wasn't pretty. The Bulls committed 19 turnovers and Derrick Rose had another poor shooting night with eight points on 1-for-13 shooting from the field. But Rose did dish out eight assists and the Bulls had a dominating 62-41 advantage in rebounds. Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic each notched double doubles while Joakim Noah cleared 16 boards.
Tony Snell led the Bulls with 20 points off the bench.Mirotic scored 16 points and grabbed 14 rebounds while Gasol added 15 points and 10 boards. Milwaukee was led by Khris Middelton's 17 points and Ersan Ilyasova 15 points and 11 rebounds.
