With their most recent victory against the Detroit Pistons, Miami was able to end their season with 40 wins and 32 losses (40-32). Having a rough start to the season winning seven out of their fourteen played (7-14), Miami was able to do an entire 180 and finish 33-18 over the last fifty-one games, also the 3rd best in Eastern conference. Ironic enough, the Milwaukee Bucks have also tied that record with Miami, with them also being the team Miami has to go against in the first round of the playoffs.
With the previous playoff run between the Heat and the Bucks, fans from all over the country are very interested to see how this matchup will go down in the first round, considering Miami was able to take the Bucks to five games and defeat them in round two of the 2020 NBA Playoffs. With star players such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, and others, Milwaukee is sure not a team to underestimate; however, with star players such as Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and Duncan Robinson, Miami is sure to put up a fight against this mighty team.
” We feel grateful that we have this opportunity and being the player that has to compete against them. They’re a great team and we’re ready to get to work this week to prepare.”– Erik Spoelstra on the Miami Heat having to go against the Milwaukee Bucks first round in the 2021 playoffs – (via: The Miami Herald:) (https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/nba/miami-heat/article251454928.html)
