Big shots by Butler
The Miami Heat are up 2-0 and are nearly about to propel to the next round of the NBA playoffs. Jimmy Butler made two free throws with 0.0 left on the clock with Dwayne Wade in attendance. Butler did not have the absurd stat line like game one but confirmed he has ice in his veins. The Heats Goran Dragic’s led Miami with 23 points to a 116-114 triumph against the number one seed Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday in Game 2. Miami leads the Bucks 2-0 in the best-of-seven series.

Heat team in Double figures
The Heat controls the series-winning four of the five games between the bucks this season, with the lonesome loss occurring last month throughout the Orlando’s NBA seeding games.
Dragic has totaled at least 20 points for a sixth straight playoff game. Miami had seven members in double figures, including the young Tyler Herro 17, Jae Crowder 16, Bam Adebayo 15, Duncan Robinson 13, Jimmy Butler 13, and Kelly Olynyk 11.

Dragic with a huge three-pointer
The Miami basketball team led by as many as 13 in the first half. The bucks, however, rallied back in the third quarter. Brook Lopez made a massive layup with 4:22 remaining on the clock, which knotted the score 78-78.
The Bucks seized their single lead thanks to Kyle Korver, making a 3-pointer that secured a small 1 point lead with 11:44 left. Dragic responded with a big 3-pointer, and Crowder also added a crucial layup on the next two possessions to recapture the lead and control. The rookie Herro helped Miami by making a basket to increase the 7-0 run.
Miami 2 wins away
The well-coached Heat team is only two victories from advancing to the conference finals since the last year of LeBron James in 2014. Milwaukee is at risk of yet another back-to-back mediocre year as the number 1 seed in the East. The Bucks won the first two games of last year’s conference finals. However, they lost four straight games to the NBA champion Toronto Raptors.
What’s so impressive about the Heat victory tonight is that Butler didn’t have a good game but, Dragic with 23, Herro with 17, Crowder, and Adebayo all stepped up! The Miami Heat are very well coached and come at you in so many different ways.
