The Bucks will be looking to finish off a season sweep of the Chicago Bulls Monday evening when the two teams matchup at Fiserv Forum. Milwaukee has won each of the first 3 meetings between the squads this season, with an average margin of victory of 14.7 points. In their most recent meeting, the Bucks won 123-102 behind 25 points from Khris Middleton.
Milwaukee is also hoping to extend their winning streak to 7 games after dismantling the Nets 117-97 on Saturday. The Bulls look to build upon their comeback victory over the Cavaliers on Saturday, after they trailed 102-87 after 3 quarters. Their offense will most likely run through Zach LaVine, who is putting together an All-Star caliber season despite a poor supporting cast. LaVine is averaging 25 PPG this season to go along with 39.1% shooting from long range.
Including their 3-0 record against the Bulls this season, the Bucks have won the past 9 meetings between the clubs.

Prediction: There’s really no reason to believe that the Bucks will lose this game. They’ve completely dominated the Bulls this season and are a juggernaut at Fiserv Forum. Expect this one to get out of hand quickly with the Bulls cutting into the deficit towards the end of the game. Bucks 125, Bulls 110
