Wednesday, December 8th, finds the Milwaukee Bucks facing the Miami Heat in their third meeting of this season. Each team has won once with the Heat winning October 21st (137-95) and the Bucks taking the December 4th match (124-102).
Both teams last played on Monday with the Heat losing 90-105 to the Grizzlies while the Bucks beating the Cavaliers 112-104.
Last season the clubs played three times with the Bucks winning two of the three contests. The Heat holds the all-time record with 72 wins in 120 matches versus the Bucks.
Turning 27 agrees with Giannis Antetokounmpo who celebrated by scoring precisely 27 points along with 12 rebounds (plus two assists and a block) for his double-double and of course a nice win versus the improving Cleveland Cavaliers.
This is the first game of a four-game road trip for Milwaukee with stops in Miami, Houston, New York, and Boston.
With the Bucks relatively healthy and adding big man DeMarcus Cousins they are on a roll other than the blip in Toronto when their MVP was on the sideline.
His presence makes a palpable difference with the Bucks scoring 25 more points per 100 possessions with him on the hardwood than when he’s subbing out for a rest.
Bobby Portis also delivered a double-double of 10 points and 16 rebounds. Khris Middleton chipped in 21 points with eight assists while Jrue Holiday filled up the stat sheet as per usual with 20 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and a block.
Cousins played 18 minutes offering seven points, six rebounds, and two steals while Pat Connaughton scored 12.
George Hill (knee) and Semi Ojeleye (calf) are questionable for Wednesday. Brook Lopez (back) and Donte DiVincenzo (ankle) are out indefinitely.
The hits just on coming for the Heat who lost Bam Adebayo for four to six weeks and only just got back Jimmy Butler but he took another hard fall hitting the same spot of his tailbone forcing him to leave the match versus the Grizzlies.
Miami has enough depth to get through without Adebayo but they desperately need Butler for his impact on both sides of the floor. Butler tried to battle through the pain but had to leave in the third quarter and will be out again on Wednesday (and likely a few more games now).
Kyle Lowry did his best to lead the Heat offering 17 points, eight assists, four rebounds, a steal, and a block but needed more help. Tyler Herro scored 24 in a reserve role while Caleb Martin (11) and Duncan Robinson (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Martin (knee) is questionable while Butler (tailbone) was downgraded to out. Adebayo (thumb), Markieff Morris (neck) and Victor Oladipo (knee) are all out indefinitely.
