NBA: Milwaukee Bucks - Miami Heat, Play off
- Title : NBA: Milwaukee Bucks - Miami Heat, Play off
The Heat couldn’t pull off the sweep in Game 4 despite Giannis Antetokounmpo having to leave early with an ankle injury. He is considered questionable to play in Game 5, but even if he does take the floor, he could be extremely limited. Jimmy Butler admitted after Game 4 that the Heat had a letdown in intensity in the previous game, so don’t expect him to let that happen again .Miami should get this series tied up tonight! Let's go heat
The Miami Heat should close this series tonight. Giannis is questionable for this game, but i think that there are big chances to see him sit this one out. Even with him on the floor, Miami is 3-0 and there are reasons for that. The Bucks other players simply can't produce enough points to keep up with them. The Heat defense was a bit weak last game so they surely will improve it tonight. Look for Miami to close out this series and go to ECF.
Bucks managed to stave off elimination in their last game despite not having Antetokounmpo for the second half of the game. However, Middleton, who was the hero in Game 4, played 48 minutes in that game and will be dealing with fatigue in this game. Even though he hasn’t been ruled out of the game, Antetokounmpo is likely not going to play or will be ineffective if he does. The Heat had their worst defensive outing in the postseason in their last game, but don’t expect that to happen again in this game because they have been able to keep the Bucks in check offensively and likely won’t have to worry about Antetokounmpo this time around. The Bucks haven’t been able to slow down the Heat, who are averaging 115.2 points per game in this series and will struggle defensively again, especially if they don’t have their best defensive player on the court.
