Miami Heat 

The Miami Heat face the embarrassment of a first-round sweep barely seven months after they played the LA Lakers in the 2020 NBA Finals.

The Miami Heat are averaging 96.3 points on 38 percent shooting and allowing 118 points on 47 percent shooting.

After a close Game 1 that went to overtime, the Bucks have won the last two games by margins of 34 and 29 points, respectively. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 118 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 96.3 points on 38 percent shooting.

Prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks raced to an early lead in the last two games, which subsequently led to complete blowouts. Considering Milwaukee Bucks' recent status, it's believed that Saturday could see a similar trend unfolding.
