NBA Betting: Bulls One Away from Beating BucksPublished April 27, 2015 by Sol FH
Game 5 of the battle between the Chicago Bulls vs Milwaukee Bucks continues at 1:00 (UK).
The Chicago Bulls were just one win away from sweeping the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, but the Bucks played an excellent game and won 92-90. The Bulls were off on Saturday giving up 26 turnovers for 39 Milwaukee points, which put the Bucks into a rhythm for most of the game.
This series has been a heated one up until Game 4 and things got turned up even higher in the second quarter when a fight almost broke out between Aaron Brooks (Chicago) and Jerryd Bayless (Milwaukee). It ended in a flagrant foul for Brooks and a Technical foul for Bayless, and the Bucks went on a 27-6 run to close out the quarter.
Keys to Game 5
The Bulls can close out the series tonight but will need to stop the turnovers and get the ball to Jimmy Butler. Butler had 23 points in the first half and ended the game with 33 total, leading both teams in scoring. The home court advantage will give the Bulls an extra boost meaning the Bucks have a challenge ahead of tonight.
Off the bench, O.J. Mayo is probably one of the best shooting guards in the NBA. He has hit shots from way downtown throughout the series and the Bucks need him on the court more often. Keeping the Bulls at bay on offense is the key to the Bucks' success.
