Milwaukee Bucks Preview
Mike Budenholzer will be extremely pleased with how his team has started their title defense and how his three superstars contributed to his victory against the Brooklyn Nets.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was his usual dominant self, while Khris Middleton played the role of a secondary scorer to perfection, scoring 20 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Jrue Holiday contributed 18 points in 12 minutes.
Rebounding is the Milwaukee Bucks’ strong suit, and it was quite evident on Opening Day against the Brooklyn Nets, as they won the rebounding battle 54-44. They also had 13 offensive rebounds to the Nets’ 5, and Budenholzer hopes his team will continue to dominate the boards.
Miami Heat preview
The Miami Heat had a brilliant preseason, which saw them win four of their five games. They have looked like a stellar unit since the arrival of Kyle Lowry, who has assumed the role of a point guard.
They will be desperate for revenge for their loss in the first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs to the Milwaukee Bucks, which ended in their being swept away at the hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo and company.
However, they are coming off a 121-100 preseason victory against the Boston Celtics and have a relatively stronger team than they had in last season’s playoffs.
The key will be to prevent Giannis Antetokounmpo from wreaking havoc. The trio of Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, and Bam Adebayo will have to do their best to help their team win.
Bucks vs Heat prediction
The Milwaukee Bucks look in great shape to play back-to-back, and the Miami Heat is unlikely to put up a surprise. However, in all likelihood it will still be a close game, considering how well Erik Spoelstra’s team did in the preseason.
The Bucks should be able to get a small win against the Heat on Thursday.
