This series has been going Milwaukee Bucks’ as of now. Milwaukee won 109-107 in overtime in Game 1. Then, in Game 2, they blew the doors off Heat, starting with a 46-point in the first quarter to win 132-98 and grab a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. In the first quarter, Giannis and his teammates made 10 3-pointers, tying the American Basketball playoff record established by Cleveland in 2016.
The Heat will need a significant lift from their home crowd in Games 3 and 4, as they haven’t given them much reason to be optimistic so far in the series.
So far in the series, reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has been outstanding, averaging 28.5 points, 15.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 3.0 steals per game. Khris Middleton scored 17 points, Pat Connaughton added 15, while Jrue Holiday and Bobby Portis each had 11 points. Once again, the Milwaukee Bucks’ defence came up big, limiting the Miami Heat to 98 points.
Erik Spoelstra, the head coach of the Miami Heat, was criticized for failing to make the requisite in-game adjustments. Tyler Herro, a fantastic three-point shooter, only played 18 minutes in the game. In contrast, Kendrick Nunn, who couldn’t shoot the ball, played 25 minutes. Jimmy Butler averaged 21.5 in the regular season. Still, he has been kept quiet by Bucks’ Jrue Holiday, who is appointed to impede him.
