The Bucks rely on their solid D to win and while they were not that bad on that side of the court in Game 1 they only shot 39.3% from the floor. Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler combined for 48 points in Game 1 and none of the players for Milwaukee starters that scored in double figures in Game 1 shot at least 50% from the floor.
The Bulls have Rose healthy and playing well and they will take advantage of that at home and win and cover in this game.
