Bucks vs. Bulls Preview: Milwaukee hopes to avenge Saturday loss

The Bulls snapped their three game losing streak on Saturday against the Bucks in Milwaukee--the ninth straight time the Bulls have beaten the Bucks overall. Chicago can retake the Central Division lead with a win tonight against the Bucks, who may have to cope without Brandon Jennings.

Starting off. No word yet on whether Brandon Jennings (sprained left ankle) will be in the lineup tonight--he's termed himself a "game-time decision" but did participate in the team's shootaround this afternoon. If Jennings can't go, expect to see Beno Udrih start in his place and play big minutes next to Monta Ellis. Doron Lamb and Marquis Daniels figure to soak up the remainder of the backcourt minutes in that scenario.

And after unexpectedly benching Sam Dalembert in favor of the little-used Joel Przybilla on Saturday, Scott Skiles has also reinstated Dalembert to the starting five for tonight's game.

Same story. No need for a long preview today--you already know what to expect from these teams. The Bucks have done themselves no favors of late by struggling from the three point line and incurring huge deficits at the foul line, and even their previously-reliable defensive rebounding ability went in the tank on Saturday. They'll need to do much better to avoid a tenth straight loss to Tom Thibodeau.
