Bulls Vs. Bucks Preview: Chicago Hopes To Bounce Back From Wednesday's Defeat

Chicago welcomes Milwaukee to the United Center on Friday night.

Chicago will try to get back on the winning track on Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, who will be without center Andrew Bogut. Bogut, who is averaging 11.3 points and a team-high 8.3 rebounds per game, suffered a broken ankle during the team's game Wednesday and will be out for a while.

But the Bulls still will have to worry about containing Brandon Jennings, who is scoring more than 20 points per game, as well as Stephen Jackson.

Chicago's offense struggled in the second half of the team's loss to Indiana on Wednesday -- the Bulls scored 36 points over the final two quarters and Derrick Rose's impact was limited -- which Chicago will hope to correct on Friday en route to a win.
