The top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks are the “road” team as they take on the fourth-seeded Miami HeatSunday afternoon in Game 4 of their best of seven series.
Milwaukee Bucks Form
The Bucks have been solid throughout the season. Also, they looked like the real deal in Game 3 but fell apart in crunch time to end up with the loss. Therefore, the Milwaukee side is now 3-0 series deficit and need to win four straight to reach the conference finals. They find themselves in a tough situation, to say the least.
So this is a must-win for form them if they want to stay in the series. During game 3 they looked good but they were outscored in fourth quarter 40-13 in the final stanza to turn that 12-point lead into a 15-point loss. Brook Lopez led the Bucks with 22 points and six rebounds in the loss.
The Bucks have the 7th offensive record as they average 112.4 points per contest. Also, Milwaukee has 47.5 rebounds per game and 24.8 assists per contest. Additionally, the Bucks are also 7th in the league in the playoffs in scoring defence as they concede an average of 110.1 points a night
Miami Heat Form
The Heat is putting some heat on the Bucks! They are heading into this game with a 3-0 lead in the series. Not many expected that to be honest. Moreover, they are 7-0 in the postseason and will aim to eliminate the Bucks in this game.
Furthermore, in game 3, the Heat recorded the biggest fourth-quarter margin in NBA playoff history by outscoring the Bucks 40-13 to earn the win. Jimmy Butler led Miami with 30 points, seven rebounds and six assists.
On the offensive side of the game, the Heat are 6th in the league in postscoring offence with 113 points per game this season. Also, Miami has 45 boards and they are dishing out 23.7 dimes a night. Additionally, the Heat stands 2nd in the league in scoring defence as they concede103 points per game.
The reality is that it will be extremely difficult for the Bucks to get back into this series. Even if they win this game. However, the Bucks outplayed the Heat for three quarters in Game 3. With Milwaukee’s backs against the wall, I expect that they will be able to win this game.
