Road Win: The One and Only

Redd
Ratchet up the intensity now that a lower seed has swiped home-court advantage. No. 6 Milwaukee, the only road team to win this postseason, survived a wild rally by third-seeded Detroit to prevail 92-88 and even their East series at 1-1. Michael Redd scored 26 points for the Bucks, who somehow outrebounded Ben Wallace and Co., 48-37.

Heat 'D' Is the X-Factor

Jones
The Hornets certainly deserve some blame for shooting just 24 percent from the field. But the Heat also deserve some credit. "That's the first time I've seen us play defense like that for 48 minutes," said Miami's Eddie Jones, whose team won 93-63 to take a 2-0 series lead. New Orleans committed 17 turnovers and dished out just 12 assists.

"It probably would've destroyed us if we lost. ... It would've been a travesty."
-- Michael Redd, after the Bucks nearly lost a 15-point lead in the final three minutes.
