Miami Heat pulled an impressive win when they defeated the first-seeded Milwaukee Bucks on Monday. The third game in the best-of-seven series between Bucks and Heat resumes on Friday at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, near Orlando.
Tip-off: 6.30 PM ET on Friday
Bucks need to win the third game in order to stay alive in the series and aim for the Eastern Conference Finals. Bucks had the best record 56-17, in the NBA 2020 when they entered the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Heats have the perfect record of 6-0 in the playoffs. They eliminated Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference’s Round 1 in first four games, without allowing the opponents to get a single win.
The Heats has the controversial second game victory with two late free throws — Jimmy Butler converted both of them. Heats won the game 116-114 after the match official allowed two free throws without a single second left on the clock. Butler released the ball in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter, but DPOY 2020 Giannis Antetokounmpo received a defensive foul, which awarded free throws to Butler.
Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer was disappointed with the official’s decision of awarding free throws. Forward Andre Iguodala will miss the fixture after suffering right ankle sprain on Wednesday.
