Miami HEAT at Milwaukee Bucks

Tuesday, September 8th @ 6:30PM

EC Semifinals, Game Five

HEAT lead 3-1

Location: The Field House at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports

TV: TNT

Start time: 6:50PM

Radio: 790AM, MIX 98.3FM (Espanol)

Uniform: Icon - Black

What to watch for:

- Tyler Herro (hip bruise), Kelly Olynyk (Knee bruise) and Jae Crowder (ankle sprain) are questionable for game 5. Chris Silva (groin) is out.

- Miami dished out 33 assists in Game 4 against Milwaukee, the most for a single postseason game in team history.

- Both Jae Crowder and Duncan Robinson each connected on six made three-point field goals in Game 4. That marked as only the second time in HEAT postseason history two players hit at least six treys in a single playoff game.

- Goran Dragić has currently scored in double-figures in 26 consecutive postseason games, the fourth-longest streak by a member of the HEAT in team history.

- Seven HEAT players each scored in double-figures in Miami’s Game Two, 116-114, win against Milwaukee, marking as the first time in postseason franchise history the HEAT have recorded at least seven different players with double-digit points.

Last Game:

Despite shooting pretty well from deep, the HEAT couldn’t quite overcome a strong outing by Khris Middleton and ultimately fell to the Bucks 118-115 in overtime Sunday afternoon at AdventHealth Arena in Orlando.

Series Notes:

- The HEAT and Bucks met three times this regular season with Miami winning two of those three matchups with the lone loss coming
inside the bubble on August 6th.

- The HEAT were the only Eastern Conference team to record at least two wins against MIL this season.

- Miami is 70-45 all-time versus Milwaukee during the regular season, including 36-20 in home games and 34-25 in road games.

- The teams enter this postseason having faced each other one time during the playoffs with Miami recording a 4-0 series sweep in the 2013 first round.
