The Bucks were the first team to secure their playoff appearance and also remain the only team to have achieved 50 wins this season.
Milwaukee’s season has been punctuated with consistency, fairly fortuitous health and little to no adversity. This past week however the Bucks suffered their first back to back losses and also experienced a team beating them twice this season for the first time.
Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to wage his MVP campaign with head coach Mike Budenholzer a front runner for Coach of the Year.
The Greek Freak leads his team in most key categories and has introduced a new twist since the All-Star break attempting 3.1 perimeter shots per game with an efficiency of 32.3 percent.
Sterling Brown (right wrist soreness) is out with no definitive return date. George Hill (left groin strain) isn’t expected back until month end.
Miami got a massive win on Wednesday and also made up ground on the Pistons who are a team embroiled in the group all trying to land one of the sixth, seventh or eighth seeds.
Seven players contributed double-digit scoring efforts with Justise Winslow leading the way with 16 points.
Erik Spoelstra continues to utilize Bam Adebayo in the starting rotation with the reformulated bench featuring a now healthy Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, and Hassan Whiteside.
That veteran trio has the constancy from playing with each other for years and are reaping benefits in this short test window.
Wade (right elbow contusion) is questionable for Friday. James Johnson (AC shoulder sprain) remains out with no timetable for return.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction: Milwaukee.
Uncharacteristically the Bucks have lost three of their last six games which may be more about trying to stay focused and not look ahead to the postseason.
Conversely, the Heat have every reason to stay invested. Miami is fighting to stay on the playoff ladder and are desirous of moving up to avoid some of the East’s juggernauts in round one (in particular this Bucks squad).
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat plus points
Tonight offers a litmus test of the East’s top team but Miami will need to do a better job protecting the perimeter than they did against Toronto who feasting from outside the arc this past Sunday. Expect a chippy, aggressive affair. If the Heat can balance paint protection with perimeter defense this game is close.
