The Miami Heat, who have lost two of their last three games, will go on the road on Friday to take on the Milwaukee Bucks. In mid-November, the Bucks defeated the Heat 91-84 in the first game of their four-game regular season series against each other.
The Heat lost their second consecutive game on Wednesday when the Atlanta Hawks were able to beat them 112-102 in Miami. Atlanta played very well on offense in that win, making over 54 percent of their shots.
So far this year, the Heat have had one of the worst rebounding teams in the Eastern Conference by only grabbing 36.3 boards per game. Big man Chris Bosh has had a very solid start to the season by averaging 21.8 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Veteran Dwyane Wade has averaged 21.2 points and 5.7 assists per game so far this year.
In their last game, the Bucks lost their third game in a row when the Dallas Mavericks beat them 107-105 at home. They made seven of their 11 three-pointers in that win and finished with a 52.1 percent field goal percentage.
The thing that the Bucks do the best is share the ball and they are now averaging 22.8 team assists per game. Point guard Brandon Knight has a 20 PER through 20 games by averaging a team-best 17.9 points and six assists per game.
