Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

NBA Regular Season

The Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat are set for an epic NBA Regular Season battle when they meet at the Fiserv Forum in Wisconsin on Saturday 15 May 2021.

The Bucks are safely through to the Playoffs and looking to fine-tune their play in what remains of the Regular Season, with this clash against the Heat set to provide them with a good yard stick by which to judge their progress.

Milwaukee racked up an impressive 141-133 win over the Houston Rockets this past weekend, with Kris Middleton and Giannis Antetkounmpo stating that they are less worried about their seeding and more with getting into a groove ahead of the knockout phase.

“I think the main focus for us is to find a way to get ourselves playing our best basketball going into the Playoffs,” said Middleton, while Antetkounmpo added: “[Our seeding] does not matter. All that matters right now is building good habits and playing good basketball. Guys are playing great."

The Heat, meanwhile, are in a scrap to secure an automatic Playoff spot and avoid the Play-in tournament – and they certainly helped their prospects with a 121-112 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves this past weekend.

Coach Erik Spoelstra was hoping to have the returning Tyler Herro play just a few minutes, but the attacker instead racked up 27 points in 29 minutes. "The best laid-out plans are getting tossed to the side at this time of year," Spoelstra said. "He's got young legs. You can see that he had fresh legs."

Goran Dragic added, "I want to be back in the playoffs. That's the most important thing."
