* Chicago won game two holding Milwaukee to just 82 points and 35.6 percent shooting, the lowest shooting percentage by the Bucks in a playoff game since 2010 (32.6 percent on May 2, 2010 against Atlanta).

* The Bulls find themselves with a 2-0 series lead for the 24th time in team history (and 15th time leading a best-of-seven series); only three teams in NBA history have had a 2-0 lead more times than Chicago (Los Angeles Lakers, 61; Boston, 44; San Antonio 28).

* Milwaukee is trailing a best-of-seven series 0-2 for the 13th time in franchise history; the Bucks are 6-6 in game three of those previous 12 series and have never come back to win a playoff series after trailing 0-2.

* The Bucks commit just four turnovers in their game two loss on Monday, the fewest turnovers by any team in a playoff loss since the Bulls had four turnovers in a first round loss to Cleveland back on April 19, 2010.

* In the first two games, the Bulls are averaging 107.5 points per 100 possessions with Derrick Rose on the court compared to just 82.3 points per 100 possessions when he is not on the floor.

* Giannis Antetokounmpo has made just 25.0 percent of his shots in his first two career playoff games, the lowest FG percentage by any player to start their playoff career since Metta World Peace shot 20.0 percent from the floor in his first two career postseason games back in 2002 (Minimum 20 FGA).
