The Miami Heat will travel to the midwest to face the Milwaukee Bucks. The Heat had a slow start but are starting to string together some wins. They are in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with a 29-24 record.
However, they could fall into seventh with a few losses. On the other side, the Bucks are in second place in the Eastern Conference with a 35-17 record. They are two games out of first but only have a one-game lead over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Heat are coming off a crushing 106-104 loss to the New York Knicks. They had a chance to win the game, but Tyler Herro missed what would have been a buzzer-beater three-pointer.
Bam Adebayo led all players with 32 points and also had nine rebounds. Tyler Herro also contributed with 25 points and eight assists. However, Jimmy Butler had an uncharacteristically quiet game and finished with ten points in 33 minutes.
The Bucks are coming off an impressive 106-105 comeback win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Milwaukee was down by 20 points in the game but started scoring (and stifling the Clippers’ offense) in the fourth quarter.
Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 54 points and had 19 rebounds. Khris Middleton also played well and had 16 points in 20 minutes off the bench.
The Heat are getting better, but they will not get their 30th win this game. They are facing a Bucks team that is firing on all cylinders. In addition, the Bucks are incredibly hard to beat at home.
Milwaukee has a 22-5 home record and has not lost a home game since January 6. It is also worth mentioning that the Heat struggle on the road and have a 12-15 record.
The Bucks are one of the most well-rounded teams in the NBA. Offensively, they have Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the way and an All-Star point guard in Jrue Holiday.
Defensively, they are also excellent and allow less than 112 points per game. They will simply outmatch the Heat. Bet on Milwaukee.
My Prediction: Bucks 109, Heat 102
