2 unit bet.
The Heat are dangerous and have a little bit of everything – shooters, ball movement, size, and really good defense. The Bucks don’t look like their normal team and part of that is they don’t have much to play for in these games now with the 1 seed basically wrapped up. The Bucks will come out better than they did vs the Nets but even against the Rockets and at times against the Celtics this team didn’t look like their normal high-powered offense. They just got Bledsoe and Connaughton back and are working them back into the rotation. Milwaukee has also been giving up a lot of good looks from three and the Heat have a lot of shooters and can get in rhythm. Jimmy Butler is out but the Heat just beat the Celtics without him. I’d like this play more if Dragic wasn’t out with an injury and think that’s a bigger injury than Butler because Miami added Jae Crowder and Andre Iguodala right around the deadline and when Jimmy Butler is out they have two guys they can rely on to take his minutes. Dragic creates so much for this team with the ball but Kendrick Nunn will still handle the point with the starters and Iguodala will play some minutes at point guard with the 2nd unit and I think they’ll be fine to keep this competitive. This team is 9 deep even without Jimmy Butler and Dragic and they have a ton of momentum off the win vs the Celtics. Miami’s only 2 games behind Boston for the 3 seed and has plenty to play for. Expect to see them play a little 2-3 zone to throw off the Bucks at points and force Giannis to shoot from deep. A little action on the moneyline +300 as well.
