Player grades: Bulls hold on in crunch time to knock off Bucks

The Chicago Bulls defeated their rival in the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, 118-113, to head into Thanksgiving with a victory.

Chicago lost all four regular season matchups against Milwaukee last season, followed up by losing to the Bucks in the first-round of the playoffs so getting the win on Wednesday was huge.

Nikola Vucevic and Coby White both hit clutch 3-pointer’s in the final minute to help clinch the game for Chicago.

DeMar DeRozan led the way for the Bulls with 36 points, four rebounds, eight assists, one steal, and two blocks on 14-of-24 shooting from the field.

Both Zach LaVine and Vucevic scored 18 points of their own and Coby White was huge off the bench with 14 points, three rebounds, two assists, and three steals.
