Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips
Miami Heat have it all to do in the coming two games
After a close first game in which the Heat lost in overtime, game two was a one to forget for coach Erik Spoelstra and his team as they were humiliated by a 34 point margin defeat. In the first quarter alone, Miami trailed by 26 points (46-20) in the first quarter as they couldn’t defend the Bucks shooting who made 72% of their shots.
On their part, Miami were awful from the field shooting just 34% in that first quarter that made the most damage as Spoelstra’s team couldn’t cope with that margin in the rest of the match.
Jimmy Butler had a very quiet game with ten points. The best scorer was Dewayne Dedmon with 19 points. Dragic added 18 points with just one shot made from the arc out of five attempts.
Milwaukee Bucks looking to keep their amazing form in game two
An amazing offensive showdown made sure the Milwaukee Bucks don’t let the second game of their playoff series against the Heat go to the wire. The Bucks went off to a flying start in the first quarter scoring 46 points ten of them from the arc of three points from 15 attempts. Giannis was the top scorer of the game with 31 points coupled with 13 rebounds.
It was the first time in 11 matches that the Bucks could limit their opponents under 100 points. It was a great display by coach Mike Boudenholzer’s team. Milwaukee dominated the rim with 61 total rebounds to Miami’s 36. Boudenholzer’s players showed great fighting spirit fighting for every ball and hustling for every rebound, a kind of hunger needed for winning championships.
- Miami are averaging 102.5 points per game in the playoffs
- The Bucks are averaging 120.5 points per game in the playoffs
- Miami are scoring 46% of their field goals in the playoffs
- The Bucks are leading the playoffs with 125 rebounds in two matches
Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
Last year’s NBA finalist Miami Heat are in a difficult situation as they face one of the top contenders to win the NBA title this season. It will be interesting to see if coach Spoelstra can make the necessary adjustments to get back in the series.
The Bucks were on fire especially in the first quarter in game two. We expect them to go out and win at least one of the two matches in Miami to secure a commanding lead in the series.
Miami couldn’t cope with the offensive power of the Bucks in game two and were troubled by the ball rotation of the Bucks through which they had 53 three-point attempts.
We think Miami will play a tougher game and will fight to come back in the series. We thus expect a relatively low-scoring game.
