Happy Thanksgiving to all of the women and men with the Bulls, Hawks and United Center. You are truly appreciated and valued. Your hard work and dedication is a testimony to your character and integrity. We have much to be thankful for and I am truly humbled to work with you . – 12:26 AM

Beating the Bucks marked the Bulls’ best victory of the season for reasons both on, off the court.
That it came after Billy Donovan challenged his stars to be better-and after beating Boston-further fueled the internal belief this team can go places. nbcsports.com/chicago/bulls/…12:19 AM
Chicago Bulls @chicagobulls
It must be Thanksgiving because DeMar DeRozan was COOKIN.

Jrue Holiday tosses a lob out of bounds to Giannis Antetokounmpo. And Vucevic hits a deep 3 from the middle of the floor.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was walking up the floor on that possession and the Bucks took a timeout after an initial push.

We didn’t get a flex out of Bobby Portis on that sequence, but it would have been deserved.
Stripped the ball to create a turnover on defense, ran down the floor and kept the ball alive on an Antetokounmpo miss. Giannis grabbed it and finished.

Zach LaVine called for his third personal foul with 10:34 to go in the first half for the #Bulls8:45 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Flagrant 1 for Zach LaVine for kicking George Hill. – 8:43 PM
Kenny Beecham @KOT4Q
Now the Zach Lavine take foul at the end of the first quarter matters a lott more – 8:41 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Not only are they calling that an offensive foul on Zach LaVine, they’re checking to see if it’s a flagrant.
Looked like a simple fadeaway jumper to me. – 8:40 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Looks like George Hill just took a shot to the wallabies. (cc: @Kane Pitman)
It’s being reviewed. – 8:40 PM

The Celtics are carving the Mavericks up. A dominant performance, and a heck of a bounce back from Monday’s dud in Chicago. – 8:39 PM

The #Bulls put up 13 threes in the first quarter. They only take about 29 a game on average.
#Bucks lead 33-32 after one. – 8:36 PM

Bulls with 6-1st quarter blocks, they avg. 5 per game. LaVine with 10pts Green 8pts Vucevic 4 assists. Bucks 33-32 after 1 @670TheScore @Chicago Bulls radio – 8:36 PM

After one quarter, the Bucks lead, 33-32.
Brook Lopez is leading the Bucks with 11 points. Jrue Holiday has 4pts/5ast and Giannis Antetokounmpo has 6pts/4reb/ – 8:35 PM

Bulls shook off very sloppy start to post solid 1st quarter. The activity and energy from the Celtics’ victory has carried over. – 8:35 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Billy Donovan said his team was going to have to move the ball against the #Bucks — the #Bulls have 10 assists on all 10 of their field goals as they are shooting 55.6%. Milwaukee leads 29-27 with about 3 minutes left in the first quarter. – 8:30 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Timeout from Mike Budenholzer after that 3 from Javonte Green in the pick-and-pop with DeRozan. Didn’t seem happy with the coverage.
Bucks up, 29-27, with 2:55 left in the first quarter though. – 8:29 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The #Bulls are an uncharacteristic 4-for-8 from behind the three-point line. The #Bucks are 5-for-11 and lead 25-24. – 8:26 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Ayo Dosunmu exhorted his teammates to run back faster on that last possession. He initially blocked Grayson Allen in transition but Allen grabbed offensive rebound and drew foul. Dosunmu wanted his teammates back to grab initial block – 8:21 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bulls shot their way back into it after the #Bucks took a 14-5 lead. Couple of Grayson Allen free throws gives Milwaukee a 18-13 lead in the early going.
Bobby Portis and Wesley Matthews check in for the Bucks. – 8:21 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Wesley Matthews checked in for Jrue Holiday with 7:07 left in the first quarter.
He has missed the last three games. – 8:21 PM

Zach LaVine has now made the 2nd-most three-pointers in Bulls franchise history after making this triple.

Bulls have done a nice job challenging Giannis Antetokounmpo at the rim early in this one.
Nice sequence there from Patrick Williams. – 8:19 PM

Patrick Williams has blocked Giannis twice at the rim already – 8:19 PM

With that 3-pointer, Zach LaVine moves into sole possession of 2nd on the all-time franchise list behind Kirk Hinrich and ahead of Ben Gordon. – 8:15 PM

The ol’ quick timeout by Billy Donovan, who watched Giannis take DeMar on the last possession in a matchup the Bulls need to avoid – 8:12 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks jump out to an 8-2 lead and Billy Donovan didn’t like DeMar DeRozan having to check Giannis Antetokounmpo in the post – so the #Bulls call timeout. – 8:12 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Brook Lopez opens scoring in tonight’s game with a corner 3. – 8:10 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Really good bounce-back from the Celtics so far. They were low-energy and the offense was off against the Bulls. None of that so far tonight. – 8:05 PM

One interesting thing about Bucks, ever since Budenholzer got there, they’ve been last or close to it in 3-ptrs allowed. Typically didn’t try to chase opponents off line, just get a hand up
Heading into this game, Bucks rank 5th in fewest 3-ptrs allowed with 11.0. Big change – 7:24 PM
Mark Followill @MFollowill
Spencer Dinwiddie is playing (and starting) as expected, after being listed as questionable w/ a left shoulder issue from Sunday. Mavs play the team w/ the best record in the NBA, the Boston Celtics (13-4). They had a 9 game win streak end in Chicago on Monday. 6:45 tipoff, BSSW. – 7:17 PM
