Milwaukee has just dominated Miami after suffering a bit of a slow start in Game One, when the Heat forced the Bucks to OT. Since then, Milwaukee’s size has turned this series into a Bucks’ waltz to the second round after building a 3-0 lead in this first round matchup. Milwaukee is out-rebounding Miami 60-43 and outshooting the Heat 47%-38% through the three postseason games. Miami came up short again in a “backs-to-the-wall” Game Three at American Airlines Arena, when the Bucks built a 19-point lead in the 2nd Q and cruised home 113-84.

The Heat were hurt by C Bam Adebayo picking up a couple of offensive fouls early and having his first half minutes curtailed, and ice-cold early shooting dug a hole the Heat couldn’t climb out of. Miami HC Eric Spoelstra started Goran Dragic hoping he could connect early and get a hot hand, but to no avail, as he made just 3 of 14 shots, while fellow starters Trevor Ariza and Duncan Robinson combined to shoot 1 for 10. There are a few highlights for Miami, Adebayo finishing with 17 pts on 7 of 14 shooting and 8 rebs., reserve F Nemanja Bjelica scoring 14 pts. in 18 mins. off the bench, connecting on 3 of 5 treys, but he also had 4 fouls. No, it’s very difficult to believe Jimmy Butler and his teammates are optimistic about their chances, and another flight to and from Milwaukee isn’t exactly a prize considering the way the Bucks are pounding the Heat. Play Milwaukee.
