Overcoming the Heat in a seven-game series could inspire the Bucks to a deep playoffs run, as they have lost both previous postseason matchups against last year's finalists. On Saturday, Khris Middleton nailed a jump-shot with 0.5 seconds remaining in overtime to lift Milwaukee to victory. The Bucks outrebounded the Heat by a 64-51 margin and missed 26 of their 31 three-point attempts. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 109 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 107 points on 36.4 percent shooting.
