The Miami Heat look to get back in the win column when they welcome in the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
Miami took one to the chin on Sunday as they went into Oklahoma City and just had nothing working for them in a 25 point defeat.
Milwaukee found themselves in the win column on Saturday as they took out the Hornets on the road. The Bucks have a modest 2 game winning streak to their credit currently.
Winning streaks have been very hard to come by for the Bucks this season. So when they even reach 2 straight wins, it’s something they need to really look to build off of.
They’ll go for 3 in a row as they’ve knocked off Atlanta and now Charlotte in back to back games. Milwaukee has also won 3 of 4 as they have a win over Chicago credited to them during this recent span.
With their recent mini surge,the Bucks remain relevant in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. The East, which has been just an absolute log jam with sub .500 teams making the playoffs, is once again living up to that expectation.
Even though they do hold the 13th best record in the conference, they are still only 12.5 games out of first place. They are just 8.5 out of 2nd place, which really shows how weak the Eastern Conference really is, with the exception of the Cavaliers.
Milwaukee will look for their 2nd straight road victory, which would be an impressive feat considering they have just 6 all season.
The Heat sit 5th in the Eastern Conference and while they are just 6.5 off the pace of first place Cleveland, the Bucks are just 6 games behind them. It’s a crazy situation and with one hot streak or one cold streak, the standings can instantly flip.
The Heat come in reeling in this one as they’ve hit a rough patch in their schedule and just haven’t been able to respond.
They’ve dropped 4 of 5 with their 4 losses coming to Utah, Golden State, Los Angeles, and now Oklahoma City.
They came out extremely flat on Sunday as they managed just 74 points and saw the Thunder pull away for a 25 point win.
The Heat will welcome the sights of American Airlines Arena on Tuesday as they play extremely well at home. Miami is 15-8 SU this season inside the confines of their home arena and are allowing the opposition to score just 95.7 points.

The Bucks have been a horrid road team this year as they’ve won just 6 games to the 18 they’ve lost.
However, they’ve played the Heat extremely well. Milwaukee is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 head to head meetings. This has the making of a lower scoring type of game. Milwaukee scores just 96.3 points per road game while the Heat average below 100 points per game both for and against.
