Not sure what I hate more: Dirk crying for a flagrant when there wasn't one, or the refs for being complete pushovers and giving it to him.
The team with Drew Gooden tonight has 14,000 points.
Bucks, Brewers talk next with me @Steph_Sutton on TWCSportsWI Roundtable. Join us. TV time for Ted http://t.co/Jssz7QeXDR
I've always liked Pique, but he's gotten to the point where you expect at least one massive mistake per game. 4th best CB on team?
Thibodeau on physicality: "When you have the same teams going at it, that's the way it goes. I thought our team handled that part well."
Mirotic limping and had big wrap on knee as other Bulls did light work Tuesday. Thibodeau said Mirotic did not have concussion in Game 2.
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau refused to put timetable on Nikola Mirotic but said he has left knee strain. Game 3 vs. Bucks is Thurs. night.
The 2015 Brewers are feeling very much like the 2013 Bucks right now. Has anyone seen Larry Drew moping around the clubhouse?
Hammond: "We've had a nice chemistry within the team, and Jason was the leader of this team."
Hammond said Kidd lost two starters in Jabari Parker (injury) and Larry Sanders (contract bought out) and kept Bucks on track.
Bucks GM John Hammond: "In my eyes, what happened in Milwaukee, Jason Kidd was coach of the year."
My coach ballot: Budenholzer - Kerr - Popovich --- Kidd certainly deserving - some great candidates this year
Problem with series: Bucks experts at beating teams they should beat (31-13 v below .500 teams). Not against the top (10-30 v .500 above).
Boston's Brad Stevens was fourth with 50 points and San Antonio's Gregg Popovich was fifth with 38 points.
Kidd received one first-place vote and 57 total points.
Bucks Jason Kidd third in coach of year voting - Atlanta's Mike Budenholzer wins award and GS' Steve Kerr is second.
Final technical foul tally: 7. Bucks 4, Bulls 3.
Just occurred to me that I haven't felt even remotely interested in Vine'ing anything from the first two playoff games. Not a good sign.
Mirotic has left quad strain and will be re-evaluated in the morning.
First Zaza technical came from elbow to Mirotic. Second was for scrum with Mirotic on floor.
Pachulia said Bucks showed intensity that was lacking in Game 1.
Zaza Pachulia said he believes his first technical foul will be reviewed and may be rescinded. He said he would look at tape.
Bucks' scrubs actually had the game tied at 74, then starters come back and Bulls just outslugged them the rest of the way. And so it goes.
This will not do: Bucks with season-low 13 assists.
Bulls survive 91-82. Game 3 Thursday night in Milwaukee. Bulls lead series, 2-0. Butler with 31; Middleton 22 for Bucks.
Rose was 4 for 14, Noah was 3 for 9, Dunleavy was 4 for 12, Gasol 4 for 12 and Bulls still win: 91-82.
Pachulia ejected from game. Weak call.
Zaza ejected for second technical - automatic ejection.
Think ref called it for elbow from Pachulia. Mirotic made a meal of it.
Zaza will not back down. Not sure what technical was earlier but he and Niko were hooked up under basket.
Pachulia and Mirotic get into brief but nasty shoving match. Welcome to playoff basketball!
I don't mind Giannis missing open looks, but being afraid to shoot is the last thing I want to see. Looks like he's in his offensive shell.
Butler with 31 points. Getting hot in here as Mirotic and Z go at it on the floor. A lot of pushing and shoving.
Jimmy Butler has been simply sensational: 31 pts and 8 boards with 2:48 left.
Butler with stop action to draw foul on Mayo.
Butler with a 3 and Bulls lead 84-74.
Bucks losing their poise at the worst time. Now down 84-74 with 5:56 left.
Mayo back in game as Kidd goes small. Butler dunks over Pachulia. Now a 10-0 Bulls run.
Gasol and Noah have combined 26 boards - or more than entire Bucks starting lineup.
Rose at line when timeout ends. Fourth foul on MCW.
Snell and Butler each hit 3s and Bulls back in front, 78-74, with 7:14 left in fourth. Bulls on a 7-0 run.
Greek Freak forcing shots, taking bad shots. Just 2 of 10 from field.
Bulls have twice as many assists (22-11). Bucks have more points (72-71).
Bucks open fourth with 2 FTs by Bayless after being fouled on drive, then a hoop from Mayo. Thibodeau calls a timeout. Bucks 72, Bulls 71.
Bucks lead the game in points.
Give me Middleton.
Bucks down 71-68 going into fourth.
Cost for a courtside seat to Bulls playoff game? A mere $2,000.
End of 3: Bulls 71, Bucks 68. Bucks giving themselves a chance; let's see how they play in fourth.
Gasol has another double-double with 11 pts and 11 rebs. Sixth double-double in six games vs Bucks.
Bucks have just 4 turnovers so far.
Bad foul by Henson as he hits Gasol 94 feet from basket. Penalty and Bulls will shoot. Bulls lead, 65-62, with 2:35 left in third.
Carter-Williams said something that irked McCutchen. Could have gave him a "T" but didn't.
Now this is a battle tonight between MCW and Rose. Each with 3 fouls.
If Rose is driving, you're going to need someone other than Mayo coming over to help.
Chicago native Jahlil Okafor of Duke, possibly the No. 1 in June draft, in attendance at United Center.
Middleton heating up for Bucks and has 17 on 6-for-13 shooting. Butler reverse layup gives Bulls 54-53 lead.
First major breakdown I can remember by Bucks on Rose tonight. He's going to hit most of his uncontested layups.
Great pack by MCW on Rose, but Khris was in the restricted area.
Giannis missing at the rim has been a thing for a while now, hasn't it?
Bulls shot 39.5% in first half (15 of 38) after shooting 58.8% in 2nd quarter. Bucks allowed 28 points in second after giving up 11 in 1st.
At some point Pau (7/22 so far) is going to mean regress all over my Bucks and it's going to be painful and disgusting and smell like tapas.
Rose 0 for 7 and Giannis 1 for 6.
Bucks still losing rebounding battle 33-20.
