Jennings has hit just 24-of-63 shots (2-17 from three-point range) over the last three games, though he made 10-of-20 shots and scored 23 points in Saturday's 93-86 loss to the Bulls before injuring the same ankle he had surgery on. Chicago returns home for the first time in two weeks after winning two games on a five-game road trip. The Bulls snapped a three-game losing streak and knocked off the Bucks for the ninth consecutive time by getting solid performances from veterans Richard Hamilton and Carlos Boozer, who combined for 44 points while making 16-of-33 shots. Home cooking should help the Bulls, who have won nine straight in this series.
