Chicago Bulls       vs Milwaukee Bucks 

DeRozan scores playoff career-high 41 as Bulls take Game 2

DeRozan scores 41 as Bulls beat Bucks 114-110 to tie series

Chicago shot 32 percent from the field as a team, and 7-37 from the three-point line, a horrific 19 percent. A playoff game simply can’t be won shooting this bad. Bulls veteran DeMar DeRozan had this to say about his Game 1 performance

Brook Lopez had 25 points for the Bucks. Middleton scored 18 and Holiday 15.

Lopez converted a three-point play to cut Chicago's lead to 112-109 with 56 seconds left.

The Bulls lost 15 of their final 22 regular-season games. During the regular season, the Bulls went just 2-21 against the top four seeds in each conference.

Chicago closed the second quarter on a 15-4 run to grab a 65-4 halftime advantage.

Milwaukee went on a 15-2 spurt to cut the Bulls' lead to three late in the third period. But the Bulls responded with 13 straight points and stayed in front the reset of the way.
