Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat Takes
To keep players safe and reduce coronavirus transmission, the NBA has reduced their travel by tweaking the schedule to include some games where teams play the same opponent on back-to-back days in the same city. That’s exactly what the NBA has in store for its fans tonight as the Heat look to rebound from their 144-97 home loss to the Bucks last night.
This matchup could be one of the best that we’ll see this entire season because yesterday’s game was so lopsided. Within only 24 hours, Miami has to face the same team again in their own building. You’d have to think that Miami will do everything in their power to prevent a similar result from happening again, but there’s a sense of urgency on the Milwaukee bench as well. The Bucks have alternated wins and losses to start the season, and this is a team that would like to put together some winning streak together. Keep in mind that it was Miami who ended Milwaukee’s championship aspirations last season with a dominant 4-1 series win down in the bubble.
The handicap for this game revolves around whether the Heat will have their full complement of players after Jimmy Butler was ruled out of yesterday’s game with an ankle injury. Milwaukee could also look to rest some key players for tonight’s matchup, with it being the second leg of a back-to-back. This is certainly one game you’ll want to be on the lookout for any injury news.
