Bulls Vs. Bucks Score Update: Chicago Takes 30-27 Lead Into 2nd 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.
