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.
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.
- 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.
