Another sub par shooting performance means another loss for the Milwaukee Bucks, 90-77 to the Bulls in Chicago.
The Bucks finished at 32% from the floor for the game, marking the 16th game this season they have shot 40% or worse in a game.
John Salmons led the Bucks with 18 points, but went 5 for 17 from the field. Teammate Andrew Bogut was held to just 4-points on 2 of 12 shooting.
The Bucks still managed to lead 45-44 at the break and stayed in the game for much of the contest, despite playing without injured point guard Brandon Jennings and suspended point guard Earl Boykins. Boykins was hit with a 1-game suspension after bumping an official the night before.
Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng scored 24 points each and Derrick Rose added 18 points and 12 assists for the Bulls in the win.
The Bucks won’t play again until New Years Day night when they host Dallas at the Bradley Center.
