The Heat got completely outplayed by the Bucks in a horrific 132-98 loss in Game 2. Jimmy Butler had 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field, which is nearly not enough for the Heat to compete. Tyler Herro only had four points in 18 minutes off the bench, while Bam Adebayo had 16 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds. Miami’s defense was also poor in Game 2, letting the Bucks shoot 41.5% from three-point range.
Milwaukee will hope to ride the momentum from their Game 2 victory and take down Miami in South Beach. Giannis Antetokounmpo asserted himself with authority, scoring 31 points, along with 13 rebounds and 6 assists. Khris Middleton scored 17 points, while Jrue Holiday had a double-double consisting of 11 points and 15 assists. The Bucks also received strong contributions from their bench as Bryn Forbes was the team’s second-leading scorer with 22 points on 6-of-9 shooting from three-point range.
