Losers of four of their last seven games since a 7-0 start, the Milwaukee Bucks are set to host the Chicago Bulls tonight.
The game marks the Milwaukee return for former Buck Jabari Parker. Parker left the Bucks as a free agent over the summer, singing a two-year deal with the Bulls for a reported $40 million. Only first year is guaranteed.
Parker has not turned into the star the Bulls (4-11) hoped for, and questions about his abilities and efforts on the defensive end continue to haunt him.
The 10-4 Bucks, meanwhile, have their own problems. They’ve not won consecutive games since their 7-0 start. The Bucks sufffered their first loss at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday, a 116-113 defeat at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies.
