Miami vs Milwaukee: prediction for the NBA fixture
On October 22, Milwaukee will play the second match of the regular season. This time champion will have a trip to Florida. Will Bucks be able to beat Miami? The answer is in our prediction.
Miami finished the previous season in the first play-off round. Back then, Heat were beaten by their today opponents, Milwaukee. Erik Spoelstra's men failed to record a single victory and lost the series by a 0:4 score to the Bucks.
During the off-season Heat strengthened the squad with Kyle Lowry. In the preseason matches Lowry failed to impress. But it is just the beginning. Lowry should understand Spoelstra's philosophy to improve the level of play.
Before the start of regular season Miami won 5 matches out of 6. Heat suffered the only defeat in the match against Atlanta.
Milwaukee failed to impress in preseason matches, but in the first game of the regular season Bucks managed to crush Brooklyn (127:104). In the regular season opener Mike Budenholzer's men completely closed out Nets' leaders. Team took the lead in the first quarter and started to extend it, finishing the game with a comfortable handicap.
Bucks' best players were Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton. This trio scored 72 points, collected 26 rebounds and gave 12 assists. Jordan Nwora also put up a brilliant performance. In 26 minutes 23-year old Nigerian player tallied 15 points and six rebounds.
In each of three most recent matches Heat collected at least 46 rebounds
In 3 out of 4 most recent matches of the Bucks they scored at least 112 points
Lowry averages 17,2 points per game in the regular season
So far we can't say what to expect from Miami, but Milwaukee already proved that they are ready for the new season. Bucks put up a great performance in the first match and recorded the first victory. We think that they will extend their winning streak at Florida. Heat are comfortable opponent for the Bucks recently.
Our prediction - Milwaukee to win (Including OT)
