Much like Milwaukee has dominated the first third of the NBA season,  they also dominated the majority of this game as well.  They started the game off hot and took a quick 10 point lead after the end of the first quarter,  while leading for the entirety of the quarter.  The Bulls were able to work their way back into the game about halfway through the 2nd quarter,  and they even managed to snag the lead for a very brief moment nearing halftime.  The Bulls kept the game close for the remainder of the first half,  but as soon as the 3rd quarter started,  The Bucks took flight again and never looked back leading by as many as 24 points and eventually winning by 21.
