The Chicago Bulls are without Richard Hamilton Friday night -- Kyle Korver started in his place -- but they've been able to handle the adjustment so far and carry a 30-27 lead on Milwaukee into the second quarter.
Derrick Rose had 10 points in the first on 4-8 shooting; Korver and C.J. Watson each added five points. Offensive rebounding was a big story in the period for Chicago, as the Bulls grabbed 57% of their missed field goal attempts. Joakim Noah had five offensive boards by himself. That effort helped offset a modest shooting effort at the offensive end.
Brandon Jennings is playing well early for Milwaukee and has 16 points.
