After losing th first match against Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks now aim to reset the series at 1-1 on the Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Miami Heat got the better of the Bucks after defeating 115-104 inside the NBA Bubble near Orlando.
The second game of the best-of-seven series in Round 2 will begin at 6.30 PM ET on Wednesday, in the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The fifth-seeded Miami Heats stunned the 19-20 regular season NBA league leaders, thanks to the duo of guard Goran Dragic and forward Jimmy Butler. Butler dropped 40 points while Dragic dropped 27 points with five points. They outperformed the reigning MVP and defensive player of the year, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored just 18 points in Game 1.
Bucks fans are surely hoping to turn the tables once again, after doing so during the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. They lost to eighth-seeded Orlando Magic in Game 1 of Round 1 but came out victorious, winning the series 4-1. Having said that, Heats isn’t an easy team to compete as they swept Indiana Pacers 4-0 during the first round.
Butler appreciated team efforts and credited them for the win. However, prior to the fixture, he asked his teammates that he isn’t going to pass. Instead he would shoot the hoops for himself. Eric Bledsoe may be returning for Game 2, though he remains questionable for the match-up.
