Milwaukee Bucks vs Miami Heat: Line-ups, preview & prediction

An Eastern Conference showdown between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat. Who will come out on top?


Preview

The Milwaukee Bucks (5-5) lost their last game on the road against the Atlanta Hawks, by the scoreline of 107-100. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 26 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, but that would not be enough to lift Milwaukee past the Hawks. Jabari Parker chipped in with 23 points, with Tony Snell (11) and Mirza Teletovic (14) reaching double digits off the bench. 

The Miami Heat (2-8) are struggling, and lost their sixth straight game on Tuesday, going down 93-90 to the Atlanta Hawks. Hassan Whiteside led the Heat with a double-double performance with 19 points and a whopping 25 rebounds. Josh Richardson also scored 19 points on 8 of 14 from the field.

Keys to the game

Milwaukee Bucks

  • Find and exploit mismatches.
  • Fasten the pace of the game.

Miami Heat

  • Feed the ball to Hassan Whiteside from the inside.
  • Mandatory bench production.

Projecting starting line-ups

Milwaukee Bucks

PG – Matthew Dellavedova  / SG – Tony Snell / SF – Giannis Antetokounmpo / PF – Jabari Parker / C – Greg Monroe.

This would be a solid line-up for the Bucks as long as the Greek Freak and Jabari Parker are on the starting five. Greg Monroe will surely dominate the paint in this game.

Miami Heat

PG – Tyler Johnson  / SG – Dion Waiters / SF – Josh Richardson / PF – Derrick Williams / C – Hassan Whiteside.

Tyler Johnson on the start at point guard for a fast start. Hassan Whiteside will be Miami’s go to guy on both offense and defense. 

Prediction

I will pick the Milwaukee Bucks to win in this game as they have the advantage of a deeper line-up that can force mismatches.

Catch the game at 7:30 PM ET @ American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL.
