On March 4 at the United Center, the Chicago Bulls fell 118-112 to the defending NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks.
The two teams now have identical records: 39-25.
A controversial moment occurred in the fourth quarter when Bulls forward Derrick Jones Jr. was called for a flagrant foul 1 on Milwaukee Bucks guard Grayson Allen, who had been booed all evening, ESPN noted. On Jan. 21, Allen committed a flagrant foul 2 on Bulls guard Alex Caruso that resulted in Caruso suffering a fractured right wrist; Caruso has not played since.
Jones insisted afterward that the foul was not intentional and denied being a dirty player.
Zach LaVine had 30 points to lead the Bulls. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 34 points, 16 rebounds, two steals and a block.
The Bulls next play at the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, March 7.
