NBA Playoffs Recaps & Predictions

April 20, 2015

Eastern Conference

Game 1
Chicago Bulls 103
Milwaukee Bucks 91

The Bucks came out in the first half and played tough. The much stronger Bulls restored order in the second half behind the strong play of Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose. This was the first playoff game Rose has played in since 2011 when he tore his ACL. He scored 23 points on an efficient 9-16 shooting from the field.

Look for the Bulls to control this series. They are simply way too talented for this Bucks team to match up with them. The Bucks might steal a game, but don’t look for this series to go much longer.
