Led by Giannis Antetokounmpos 20 points, 12 rebounds and Playoff career-high 15 assists, the No. 3 seed Bucks defeated the No. 6 seed Heat, 120-103, in Game 4. Brook Lopez added a game-high 25 points (11-15 FG) for the Bucks in the victory, while Jimmy Butler tallied 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Heat in the losing effort. The Bucks have now closed out this best-of-seven series, 4-0, and will advance to the Eastern Conference Semifinals to face the winner of the Brooklyn Nets Boston Celtics series (Brooklyn currently leads, 2-1). The Bucks knocked down a Playoff franchise record 22 3pt FGs as they defeated the Heat, 132-98, in Game 2. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 31 points, 13 rebounds and six assists, while Jrue Holiday added 11 points, seven rebounds and a Playoff career-high 15 assists in the victory. Bam Adebayo tallied 16 points and four assists for the Heat in the losing effort. The Bucks lead this best-of-seven series, 2-0, with Game 3 taking place on Thursday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Essentially the same place as last Friday, when Milwaukee dismantled the Heat 124-102 despite no Giannis Antetokounmpo. Pat Connaughton paced the team with 23 points, while Khris Middleton added 22 and Bobby Portis tallied 19 to go with 16 boards. It was a thorough shellacking, featuring cheap shots from Tyler Herro on Portis, and the lamest of lame attempts to draw a charge at halfcourt by Dewayne Dedmon heading into half. Sandro Mamukelashvili also got his first career start in that one, but with Giannis back, I’d expect far less of the Sandman. Outside of the 112-104 Cleveland win, and the presence of a now 27-year-old Antetokounmpo, not much has changed from last Friday. We’ll see how hostile the Heat crowd is after their beatdown of this team to start the year. The best part about Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat games is that, even when one or both teams are missing key players, there still seems to be plenty of juice to the matchup. That’ll be the case tonight when the Heat are once again without their two best players, but that doesn’t mean I would enjoy a Bucks win any less. Plus, it never hurts to start out a four-game road trip on the right foot.

This Heat game is the first of a four-game road trip and is part of a stretch where the Bucks play eight of 12 away from the Fiserv Forum.

The Heat dominated the shorthanded Bucks 127-104 in the Bucks’ second game of the season in Miami. The Bucks returned the favor with a 124-102 blowout win in Milwaukee this Saturday in a game Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jimmy Butler, and Bam Adebayo all sat out due to injury.Without Butler and Adebayo, the Heat are missing significant contributors on both ends of the court. Their defensive ability gives the Heat tremendous scheme versatility, but without them, the Heat will be considerably smaller than the Bucks. This means the Heat will need to win the battle from the 3-point line to overcome the Bucks’ advantage with Antetokounmpo in the paint. While Herro has been impressive so far in his third season, Robinson and Lowry have underwhelmed as shooters so far. Herro has turned heads as he has made 51% of his long midrange shots (81st percentile among combo guards, per Cleaning The Glass) and 39% of his 3s. He can make tough shots off the catch or the bounce and is the Heat’s best offensive weapon with Butler out. The Heat will especially miss their ability to get to the line. Butler leads all NBA forwards as he has drawn shooting fouls on 20.5% of his shot attempts. Similarly, Adebayo ranks in the 91st percentile among all bigs as he has been fouled on 20.2% of his shots. No one else on the Heat has drawn shooting fouls on more than 13.2% of his shots. The Heat’s surprising five-game playoff victory over the Bucks in the NBA bubble two seasons ago set the stage for a first round playoff sweep by the Bucks last season en route to a title. Sprinkle in a bit of gamesmanship (the Heat pushing for a 10-second free throw violation on Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 1), a whole lot of fire (Jimmy Butler, P.J. Tucker and Antetokounmpo) and the fact Thursday night’s game at FTX Arena was the Heat’s season debut, it had a sense of anticipation early regular season games don’t typically engender. In fact, the Bucks went 8 minutes 54 seconds between field goals in the first quarter as the Heat ran out to a 40-17 lead. Miami reserve Max Sutro provided the bookend for Tucker’s opening salvo by chasing down Jordan Nwora on what looked like a routine fast break dunk, instead blocking the Buck's attempt at the rim. As Sutro went tumbling into the crowd, Heat guard Tyler Herro ran in a 32-foot three-pointer at the buzzer. But Miami’s bigger wing players like Butler, Herro and Duncan Robinson were just as aggressive in attacking Milwaukee’s defense. And even as the Bucks sent multiple players to the defensive glass, the Heat didn’t just allow uncontested rebounds – they often kept a couple players under the rim to harass and challenge for loose balls.
