Big Bucks duo takes on banged-up Bulls

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton look to continue their stretch of offensive dominance Friday night as the Milwaukee Bucks host the Eastern Conference-leading Chicago Bulls.

The banged-up Bulls, meantime, are starting a three-game road trip without starting guards Lonzo Ball and Zach LaVine. The team left both players at home with knee injuries, and although LaVine's ailment is not expected to keep him out for too long, the team acknowledged Thursday that Ball will miss probably six weeks as he undergoes surgery for a meniscus tear in his left knee.

Milwaukee has been getting monster production from the duo of Antetokounmpo and Middleton over the past six games, as they have combined to average 57.2 points, 17.3 rebounds, and 13.7 assists. Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.5 points while Middleton is averaging 25.7.
