Game preview Heat vs Bucks

The Heat winning was never truly in doubt of winning in game one with the Bucks as they easily prevailed by 13 points. From Miami’s perspective, however, this loss had significant repercussions: Tyler Herro will miss at least another month due to an ankle injury while Giannis Antetokounmpo’s back is currently being evaluated by medical personnel.

Milwaukee BucksCan the Bucks bounce back?

Giannis Antetokounmpo remains in question for Wednesday’s Game 2, as his status remains unclear. The Bucks remain confident he can suit up, which bodes well for their chances.

Milwaukee must play better defensively if it wants to level the series before shifting it back to Miami. Game 1 saw Miami score 130 points after ranking dead last in scoring during the regular season at 109.5 PPG; their performance here came as quite a shock since Milwaukee is fourth in defensive rating; therefore, expect a lower-scoring game here, especially if Giannis isn’t 100 percent healthy.

Miami HeatCan the Heat take control of this series?

Miami appeared to catch Milwaukee by surprise in Game 1. Having not played in nearly a week prior, Milwaukee started slow and fell into an early deficit. Don’t expect this same scenario to repeat itself in Game 2, particularly with their home crowd supporting them! No, Tyler Herro will be a killer for the Heat.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Bucks -5.5

Milwaukee will likely win on Wednesday to even up the series, yet much remains unknown about them and Miami. Saturday brought an unexpected 13-point victory from them, drastically changing everything for this series.

Giannis Antetokounmpo only played 11 minutes after suffering a back injury and may return in time, but Miami proved they wouldn’t be outclassed.

Replacing Tyler Herro may prove challenging, but the Heat was victorious with limited production from their guards as Jimmy Butler produced an outstanding game with 35 points and 11 rebounds – leading his team in both scoring and rebounding – Kevin Love also contributed 18 points and eight rebounds with Max Strus proving that he can step up at times; not forgetting Bam Adebayo who helped keep things close in game 1. There is enough here for Game 2 to remain close! I lean toward the Bucks to cover.
