Coming off of last year’s playoffs run in the bubble that led to a trip to the finals. They now face elimination at the hands of the team they defeated 4-1 last year in the second round.
Credit must be given to the Greek Freak and the entire Bucks squad who stepped up and performed this series. The Addition of Jrue Holiday has been the most underrated move the Bucks made this season. By doing so securing a spot as a contender in the East.
Giannis and Jrue’s chemistry is clicking as Holiday can be the third option on the team. Giannis sets picks and screens for him to create plays.

Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks Game 4 Prediction
The Miami Heat are now cornered and have their backs against the wall. They are not expected to get blown out at home and will fight with hopes of extending the series one game at a time. The Bucks, however, do not underestimate the Heat due to past playoff experience and are expected to have another dominant game.
The supporting squad of Middleton, Holiday, Lopez with PJ tucker, and Bryn Forbes coming off the bench is superior to the young heat squad with old veterans in Iguodala and Ariza and young players in Herro, Robinson, and Nunn. Milwaukee will win Game 4 by a close margin, despite a good performance by Jimmy Butler
