NBA Playoffs: Bucks Vs. Heat Game 2Published May 24, 2021 by Sol FH
The Bucks got the better of the Heat in Game 1, but can Miami turn it around in Game 2? Tip-off is at 00:30 GMT.
The series between the Bucks and Heat seems like it will be an action-packed, intense series. It is beautifully set up. After an epic Game 1 win by the Bucks in overtime, the stage is set for an awesome series between these two Eastern Conference teams.
Miami struggled on offense in Game 1 on Saturday, as Jimmy Butler had one of his worst games of the season. He managed to score the clutch bucket to send the game to overtime, but it wasn't good enough, especially against Giannis and the Bucks.
The Bucks did not shoot well in Game 1. They were 5-for-31 from beyond the arc and shot a little over 60% from the free-throw line. The biggest issue at the line is their star Giannis Antetokounmpo who missed seven attempts. The Bucks do not shoot well from the perimeter, but, in spite of that, they were still able to win.
The Heat has one of the best defenses in the NBA, which is at least part of the reason for the Bucks' poor shooting, but, they to have their issues.
Expect another Barn Burner
If you are really wanting to watch an exciting series, this one is one of the best. Both teams need to improve in a lot of areas, respectively, but, they can both be better than what we saw in Game 1 so expect better performances on both sides.
If Giannis is on, the Heat are in trouble, but, if the duo of Butler and Adebayo play better, the Bucks are gonna be in trouble.
