Tuesday, December 29th finds the Milwaukee Bucks facing the team who knocked them out of the postseason — the Miami Heat.
Last season the clubs played three times with Miami taking two of the three matches. The Heat holds the all-time record with 70 wins in 115 matches.
GM Jon Horst made significant changes to the Bucks roster most notably to add Jrue Holiday. At the time most analysts believed Milwaukee had improved on both sides of the hardwood. But have they?
Sure, it’s early, but through three games the Bucks have lost two and one of those came in blowout fashion to a team headed to the lottery.
While the Buck constancy and set systems run to perfection in season, the reverse is true in the playoffs. And, perhaps that’s what we’re witnessing through the early going – a club that is dealing with integrating new team members and system tweaks.
Four Bucks reached double-digits with Giannis Antetokounmpo (27 points, 13 rebounds), Khris Middleton (22), Bobby Portis (17), and Donte Divincenzo (10).
Torrey Craig suffered a fractured nose and won’t be available Tuesday.
Through two games the Heat are .500 showcasing the depth that propelled them to the NBA Finals. Their roster compilation is a perfect blend of youth and experience that is earmarked by versatility and specialty players.
That balance was on full display in the victory over the Pelicans as three starters and three reserves reached double figures scoring.
Duncan Robinson led the way with 23 points. He was joined by Goran Dragic (18), Bam Adebayo (17), Avery Bradley (12), Tyler Herro (11) and Precious Achiuwas (11).
Gabe Vincent (knee) hasn’t played in the last two games and is questionable for Tuesday. Jimmy Butler had to leave a match after tweaking his ankle which has been stiff is expected to keep him out on Tuesday.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Bucks are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
- The Bucks are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games.
- The Heat are 17-6 ATS in their last 23 games overall.
- Under is 19-6-1 in the last 26 meetings in Miami.
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
The Bucks are dealing with major personnel changes to their backcourt and reserves, specifically Holiday and DiVincenzo replacing Eric Bledsoe and George Hill.
On paper the upgrade is obvious, but fundamentally Milwaukee’s offense may suffer since Holiday won’t hunt his own shots like Bledsoe and a reserve player needs to replace DiVincenzo’s prior output.
Furthermore, the loss of Hill is felt particularly on defense where he was a reliable man to man and system defender.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
While the Heat can offset the loss of Butler on offense his absence will be felt on the defensive side of the ball. Combine that with the ire the Bucks are feeling over the embarrasing loss to the Knicks and this one could get ugly early.
