Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks Game Thread (Nov. 24)

The Chicago Bulls have never lost to the Milwaukee Bucks during Tom Thibodeau's tenure as head coach. Will that change on Saturday night?

Jonathan Daniel

Tom Thibodeau is awesome. He's an amazing head basketball coach in the NBA, and that fact is impossible to deny. During his tenure as the head man in Chicago the Bulls have never lost to the Bucks (8-0), but this season the Bucks are a better team than any iteration that Thibodeau's squads have ever faced. This might also be the worst Bulls team that Milwaukee has ever had the pleasure to play against.

The Bench Mob for Chicago is a distant memory. Nate Robinson, Nazr Mohammed and Kirk Hinrich aren't quite equal replacements for C.J. Watson, Ronnie Brewer and Omer Asik, and the drop off when the reserves hit the floor has been noticeable for the Bulls. In turn, the Bucks have one of the strongest bench units in the league.

If Skiles is ever going to solve Thibodeau, this is the year. Heck, this is the week. Let's get this out of the way before Derrick Rose comes back and starts kicking Milwaukee's arse again. Consider this: the Bulls are on a three-game losing streak for the first time with Thibs as head coach. Here are a few other mind-boggling facts you need to know about Tom Thibodeau's tenure in Chicago, via Bulls radio producer Jeff Mangurten:
