Bucks can't really score enough, but have massive size advantage with giant guards and "small" forward; 23-14 reb edge. 35-34 Bulls
Bulls up 35-34 Butler with 9---Bucks 23-14 on the boards MCW with 4 OR
It’s amazing how few teams play Joacim Noah for the pass when he comes down the lane. Scoring is not his primary thought, but it works
Thibodeau hammering the rebounding theme again. Bucks have 22-12 edge and 7-0 in 2nd-chance points.
The O’Jays “For the love of money” plays when Khris Middleton scores. As a free agent this summer, he will get PAID
Hinrich with two bad inbounds passes/plays. Those simple possessions add up in the postseason
Bucks to unveil new uniform colors; looks like orange based on way cheerleaders dressed; you figured they'd be influenced by cheese sauce
Bulls up 25-20 after 1. Thibs has played nine guys already. When Rose comes back, will he play nine or cut it?
After 1 Bulls 25-20 Brooks 5 points 3 steals
Plenty of rest for the Bulls in a few weeks after they dispose of this team in five games.
Gibson said yesterday he's ankle was feeling better. It shows. He is playing like the Taj of old tonight. A lot of energy and athleticism.
Gibson: “I’ve been going for the lob more, my teammates have been looking for it more.” Ladies and gents, the backdoor high-low lob
Very little answer for the #22.
Bulls power ahead 20-13 with Gibson power postups; Jason Kidd calling for a case of waters to spill just in case
Taj Gibson is active, really igniting the Bulls so far. Almost bullying the Bucks inside. 20-13 Bulls
Taj Gibson provides a spark off the bench..back to back buckets Bulls 20-13
60-40 Bulls fans to Bucks fans here in Milwaukee. Hostile takeover!
Thanks for listening Bulls fans...we love you!
Bulls 16-11 Brooks-Butler=10pts 4:14 left 1st
Bulls get a defensive rebound; game stopped so Bulls can have the ball bronzed
Butler took a hard fall to his back after a hard foul from Zaza…being reviewed for a flagrant
Butler takes a hard fall on Pachulia foul; hey, it's a first round playoff preview. Anything goes with Bad Boys Bucks!
9-9 ballgame...Butler sent to the floor on a hard foul by ZaZa
Bucks have 10 rebounds; five offensive in first 5 minutes. Bill Russell says he's never seen anything like it
Bucks seem faster to the ball tonight, but Bulls playing through the early emotion. Up 9-7 midway through 1st
Damn, The Greek Freak is fun to watch. Bulls got away with a bad call on that one. That was a helluva play.
Bulls give up two offensive rebounds, so Thibs calls timeout; Bulls give up three on next possession. So there.
Thibodeau hot about the lack of rebounding, really lit into team first part of the timeout.

It would feel like a Cubs playoff series in Atlanta or Miami.
I can't even imagine how many Bulls fans would be in this place if a Bulls/Bucks playoff series actually happens.
Plenty of Bulls fans here in Milwaukee. Say hello. Across from Bucks bench 25 rows up http://t.co/IN0pBc8T1v
McDermott said he landed wrong while grabbing a rebound near end of Pacers game and tweaked his back. Concerned? "Not at all," he said.

Happy 80th BD (!) to my Mom, the coolest April Fool I know.
For tonight at Milwaukee: Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Doug McDermott (back soreness) is out.
Nothing Rose said today or any other day has changed internal belief he will return in regular season. Rehab smooth. Scrimmages went well.
Bulls-Bucks here in Milwaukee 630CT pre Bulls Radio Network. ESPN 1000 http://t.co/Jxe7ZsuhKO
Rose on rhythm: "I was able to get to my spots. It’s just making shots and just getting wind to run up and down, that’s the hardest thing."
Rose seems pleased about what he’s done in two days of practice: "Both days. I know it’s a process, but I’m along for this ride."
Rose said he felt good after 2 days of contact. "I know it's a process but I'm along for this ride."
Rose: "As far as playing a game or coming back full strength and all that, that’s going to come. My rhythm of the game will come."
Derrick Rose didn't put a timetable on a regular season return, saying "I haven't even thought about it. Just worrying about rehab."
Rose: "I was able to get to the spots. It’s just making shots and getting the wind to actually run up and down. That’s the hardest thing."
Rose wouldn't commit to return but said he's pleased with how his body reacted to contact. Said he's only missing his wind, conditioning.
Rose on if he's still optimistic about a regular season return: "Who knows? Who knows?"
Rose still uncertain if there will be a regular-season appearance. "Who knows."
Rose says he's feeling good. Just wants to keep getting his wind up.
Derrick Rose is out tonight vs Bucks
Thibs says McDermott (back soreness) is still out.
Thibs says Rose is getting "better and better" Still out for now. Needs to string more practices together.
McDermott, Rose out vs. Bucks. Thibodeau said Rose responded well to 2 days of contact.
UCLA freshman forward Kevon Looney is closing agency agreement and planning to declare for the 2015 NBA draft, sources tell RealGM.
Heard about this "Candy Crunch" so I went to 7-11 and couldn't find any I asked if they had any in stock.To quote Neil Funk.I'm a "Mor..on"
Man, CP3 must've made some real bad "yo momma" jokes to get this repeated treatment from Steph Curry.
Kevin Harlan dropping a " Red Rocket" at the greatness of Matt Bonner. The legacy lives on 2004 !
Spurs playing a depleted Heat team but boy do they look great its that time of year.
Whiteside just dunked ....hmmm. I wonder why he didn't moments ago? Either way the Heat play hard credit Coach Spo
Gorgeous move by Whiteside just can't finish because of the hand. With banged up finger can't dunk
Tony Parker just put the entire Heat team in the blender. Wowza
Thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time to the family of Mike Feezey my former boss at WJR in Detroit. A very good man .
Grantland is a tremendous platform for in depth sports features. The Bobby Phils story is extremely well written .

Taj Gibson: "You have to understand you’re playing for a great team. You can’t worry about the “me” aspect. I'm happy guys are doing well."
Taj Gibson: "If you look at our frontline, we’ve got a bunch of guys who can basically start anywhere. So sacrifices are going to be made."
On train headed to Milwaukee for Bulls and Bucks. Hope to see thousands of Bulls fans. Please say hello Also welcome to Twitter Tim Hallam!
Get the sense from Taj that the Bulls playing just 5 games in 14 days before the last two weeks of the season has been a godsend
Bulls have won 9 straight games in Milwaukee. Last loss there came on Jan. 8, 2010.
FWIW, there's huge sense of confidence/optimism emanating from Bulls lately. They know they're getting healthy and feel they'll be tough out
Taj spills the beans. Rose's team lost in the scrimmage.
Taj on Rose: "He looked great to me."
No word on whether Rose actually plays tomorrow but with the way this season has gone, it's anybody's guess. Again, two practices
Thibs was still non-committal in regards to a Rose return date, but he sounds optimistic about the progress.
Rose went through 5 on 5 scrimmages today. Again, Thibs message revolved around his conditioning and timing
McDermott sat out w/ back soreness. Thibodeau wouldn't say if Rose's team won scrimmage but laughingly said, "Our 2nd unit is playing well."
Thibs says McDermott didn't practice today. Still has some back soreness.
Thibs says Rose still has to get his wind up but says "he's in a good place" with rehab.
Thibs says Rose participated in some five on five scrimmages today.
Rose scrimmaged 5-on-5 today. Thibodeau said he looked good.
Happy Birthday #87 to Mr. Hockey Gordie Howe
