The Chicago Bulls look to take a 2-1 series lead over the division rival Milwaukee Bucks in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference playoff series on Friday night.
After stealing Game 2 on the road, the Chicago Bulls are hoping to keep the positive momentum in their direction when they host the Central Division rival Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night in their first-round playoff series.
Milwaukee took Game 1 at home, but stumbled at home to Chicago in Game 2. The Bucks lost All-Star wingman Khris Middleton to a sprained MCL in defeat. He will be out for the rest of the first-round series. For the Bulls, they were able to rip home-court advantage away from the defending NBA champions. If they take care of business in Games 3 and 4, this series may belong to Chicago.
Tipoff from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois will be at 8:30 p.m. ET, 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, April 22.

Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks Game 3 prediction
If the Bulls want to hold serve and ensure Milwaukee does not take back home-court advantage, Chicago will have to muddy this one up a bit. It may be a low-scoring affair, but every possession that is not in the hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo will help the Bulls pull off the upset. With the United Center packed to the brim, look for the Bulls to get the lift they need from the home crowd.
Prediction: Bulls 91, Bucks 85.
