Here’s how to watch Game 3 between the Miami Heat and the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Miami Heat are in trouble. After a close match 1, the Milwaukee Bucks completely toppled Miami in a dominant 132-98 victory.
Now the series heads to Miami starting Thursday and the Heat must avoid that dreaded 3-0 series deficit. Jimmy Butler will be the center of attention after scoring just 10 points in the second game loss. There is no hope in Miami if Butler only takes 10 shots from the field again.
Bucks vs Heat: Here’s how to watch Game 3
Dated: Thursday May 27
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: Miami, Florida
Location: AmericanAirlines Arena
TV Info: TNT
The action begins at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be seen on TNT. It means a lot of pre-game antics from the TNT crew leading up to the crucial game.
The obvious key to the Heat in Game 3 is to avoid another disastrous start. The Bucks took a 46-20 lead after a quarter in Game 2 and the rest of the night was just spent browsing the moves.
Not a single Heat player reached the total of 20 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo made it his way with 31 points in 31 minutes.
The Bucks are the favorites, but the Heat are still the defending conference champions. If Butler is as good as he says he is, Game 3 will see him go. Yet the main focus here will be defense. No player can save his team if the opposing team can score every possession at will.
These are two teams that have legitimate title hopes. A series collapse for Milwaukee could lead to some major changes this offseason, especially at the head coach. A series loss for Miami could also lead to changes, making Game 3 a potential turning point for both franchises.
