Saturday, May 29th the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat will play their fourth game of the first-round set in what could be the final game of the series.
The Bucks took a commanding 3-0 series lead via routs in each of the last two matches. Milwaukee won Game 1 by a score of 109-107, Game 2 by a rout of 132-98 and then put their throat on the necks of Miami with a 113-84 oust on Thursday.
It seems inevitable this series is over given the Bucks have been able to render Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo irrelevant.
Whie the Bucks continue to roll it’s been a different player in each game who has led the offensive outburst. In Game 3 it was Khris Middleton who scored a team-high 22 points along with eight rebounds, and five assists.
Jrue Holiday and Giannis Atentokounmpo each delivered double-doubles. Holiday registered 19 points with 12 assists while the Bucks MVP produced with 17 points and 17 rebounds plus five assists.
Despite holding the 3-0 lead with the two consecutive routs Antetokounmpo stated those games weren’t easy. I’m not sure what the two-time MVP would call easy but winning by 20 plus points is about as close as it gets.
So much for the home cooking as it turned out it didn’t matter and the Heat fell once again to the offensive outburst of the Bucks.
As I noted in the last preview the start was key and falling behind 26 to 14 essentially did in the Heat once again. By the time they reached half time Miami was trailing by 13 points and by 26 points heading into the final quarter.
Jimmy Butler did his best to get his team rolling wth 19 points, eight rebounds and six assists while Bam Adebayo chipped in with 17 points, eight rebouns and four assists.
Seldom used Nemanja Bjelica who was added late in the season was given more time in Game 3 to help space the court and that decision worked (somewhat) as he added 14 points.
While some teams like last season’s Nuggets were able to buck (no pun intended) the trend — no team has ever come back from being down three games to one.
- The Bucks are 6-4 in their last 10 head to head meetings
- The teams are 5-5 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 4-6 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- The Heat are are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games.
- The total has gone over in 12 of Miami’s last 16 games.
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
As I noted in the Game 3 preview, solid starts are key for Miami along with winning the perimeter and rebounding battles.
The Heat failed to do it for the third consecutive game shooting 28.1 percent from the perimeter versus the Bucks 36.1 percent and Milwaukee won the rebounding battle 55 to 42.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
It’s inevitable this series wil go to the Bucks. I felt if Miami had any shot they had to win Game 3. Their pride might get them a win in Game 4 — but it’s more likely the youngsters on the club are already having vacation visions and unlikely to want to return to Milwaukee.
I guess we’ll discover how powerful Butler’s will is since he won’t concede anything. That said, teams up 3-0 in a series have a winning recored of 140 to zero.
