Bucks lose 91-82 to Bulls, game three Thursday in Milwaukee

 Former Marquette star Jimmy Butler scored 31 points for the Chicago including a big fourth quarter which helped propel the Chicago Bulls to a 91-82 win Monday night.  Chicago takes a 2-0 series lead over Milwaukee. The Bucks kept the game close until the Bulls ran away with it in the fourth quarter. Bucks head coach Jason Kidd says his team played better in game two than game one. 

\"We've gotten better each time we've taken the floor,\" Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. \"In game two, we've improved from game one. For this being a learning experience, I thought the guys on the road gave us an opportunity to win game two. Now they held serve, and it's our job to go back home and hold serve.\"

Center Zaza Pachulia was ejected in the fourth quarter after picking up his second technical foul.  He says the team needs to share the ball better.

\"I think 13 assists is terrible for our team, it's terrible for our team,\" Bucks Center Zaza Pachulia said. \"Especially with the way we've been playing all year long, sharing the ball, 25 or more assists. Where was it? It was definitely gone today.\"

Guard O.J. Mayo agrees with Pachulia.

\"As a team, we got to do a better job of moving the ball side to side with such a tough defensive team like they are how they're built,\" Bucks guard O.J. Mayo said. \"We got to create shots for each other.\"

Kidd was happy with the first half defense, but says the second half defense wasn't good enough.  He said the team missed too many easy shots.

\"For us, we got to make open shots and finish at the rim,\" Kidd said. \"We missed a lot of bunnies in the paint. We'll look at the tape and see if we can get better and get ready to go on Thursday.\"

Game three is Thursday night at 7:00 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
