Not to sound too cocky here, but damn we’re good. Thanks to the Heat shocking the Bucks in Game 1 we’re now 5-0 with our NBA Playoff locks this postseason. We’ve been keeping it simple, not digging too deep into the numbers and it’s been working and that’s the same approach we’re taking on Wednesday jumping back in on the Bucks-Heat series.
NBA Lock For Wednesday: Miami Heat vs. Milwaukee Bucks
The Pick: Bucks -5
Tip-Off: 6:30 PM EST
Let’s be honest with ourselves here. Do we really think the Heat can take a 2-0 lead on the Bucks in this series? This matchup is going to go back and forth and could very well go to seven games; things are going to even out on Wednesday and the Bucks are going to make the adjustments to knot the series up at 1-1 and do so by winning by at least six points.
Jimmy Butler was a real problem for Milwaukee in Game 1 dropping 40 points and showing off his clutch gene down the stretch. He’ll continue to fill it up, but beyond him, it was really only Goran Dragic that had a solid outing for Miami. On the other side of the ball for the Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo only went for 18 points, which is highly unlike him. The Heat have done well slowing him down in previous matchups as well, but it just seems like he has a switch he hasn’t yet flipped yet.
In order for Milwaukee to tie this series up, it’s going to have to do better on the glass and not go 14-26 from the charity stripe, which isn’t too much to ask for.
